Add-On Type(s)

Plugin

Tags

Save entries for a user during a session. This could be used for a 'add to cart' function or for a 'product compare' function (save entry_id's for later use). Entries are only stored during a session. As of version 1.0 you can also save the session storage to the database on a per member basis.

Note: When using the redirect parameter and calling the template with Ajax, Remember Me doesn’t redirect, but instead returns a string (or nothing).

Fantastic add-on. Saved me a whole load of time. Very simple to understand, well documented (a rarity it seems) and very, very useful.

And it’s free. Thank you Wouter!
