so i've made other web applications that remember information about the user via login. However project 2 does not states the need to login, only that his display name should be remember when he returns to the site. Yet I have no idea how to do that. We havent discussed cookies so I dont think thats the way to go. Can someone please point me in the right direction? Thanks

  • I'm referring to this requirement: "Display Name: When a user visits your web application for the first time, they should be prompted to type in a display name that will eventually be associated with every message the user sends. If a user closes the page and returns to your app later, the display name should still be remembered."
