    Online Checklist?

    Hello! I'm new here and have a question I need some help on.
    I am wanting to use checkboxes to allow my users to have an "online checklist" that they can return to to update as needed.

    How can I set the checkboxes to stay checked for repeat visits?

    This will be used for a particular comic book collecting site, where guests can check a box next to an issue they own, so they can return to the site as their collection grows to add more issues.

    Thanks for looking...

    Not with html.
    A basic list could be saved with cookies, but using a server-side language would be a better option.

    mmm cookies... I was afraid that may be the best option, unfortunately I have no idea how to go about setting something like this up. Can you point me in the right direction...

    The cookies link shows how to read and write values.

    I'd go server side - with a log-in to access the appropriate data from a flat file or MySQL (or similar) database).
