hi this is what i'm making

www.gojyotish.com

go here and enter
username="nagz"
pass="nagz"

the problem you'll see is that after submitting the information the page will return bak as it was, nothing wd be notified regarding the success of the login.

But if you just refresh the page, you will see that "Welcome saurabh" is appearing on th top right.....

y is this happening, i'm using cookies to store the name....

We cannot see your PHP code, so there is no possible way we can tell you what is wrong, please post up some code so that we can look at it.

this is index.php

<?php
if(isset($_POST['submit']))
{
     $dbc=mysqli_connect('localhost','gojyotis_nagzadm','abcd)(*&1','gojyotis_gojyotis')
       or die('Error connecting to database');
     $id=trim($_POST['id']);
     $pass=trim($_POST['pass']);
     $query="select * from user where id='$id' and pass='$pass'";
     $result=mysqli_query($dbc,$query)
       or die('Error quering database');
     if(mysqli_num_rows($result)==1)
     {
        $row=mysqli_fetch_array($result);
        setcookie('user',$id);
        setcookie('uname',$row['fname']);
     }
     else
     {
        echo "<script language='javascript'>";
        echo "alert('Wrong Id or Password')";
        echo "</script>";
     }
     mysqli_close($dbc);
}
?>
