    So, I made a thinggy that will, when activated ask for your name, then create a cookie, when the page is reloaded, it says "welcome back Name." the thing is, I want to make it so it will reload the page, and say it right after you type it in. I don't know what to put, and where to put it.
    Here is my code so far:

    Code (html5):
    <!DOCTYPE html>

    function setCookie(cname,cvalue,exdays)
    var d = new Date();
    var expires = "expires="+d.toGMTString();
    document.cookie = cname+"="+cvalue+"; "+expires;

    function getCookie(cname)
    var name = cname + "=";
    var ca = document.cookie.split(';');
    for(var i=0; i<ca.length; i++)
     var c = ca[i].trim();
     if (c.indexOf(name)==0) return c.substring(name.length,c.length);
    return "";

    function checkCookie()
    var user=getCookie("username");
    if (user!="")
    document.write("Welcome again " + user);
     user = prompt("Please enter your name:","");
     if (user!="" && user!=null)


    <body onload="checkCookie()"></body>
