Hi Ronald

You need to modify this part of your code:

post("/sign-in", (req, res) -> {
            Map<String, String> model = new HashMap<>();
            String username = req.queryParams("username");
            res.cookie("username", username);
            model.put("username", username);
            return new ModelAndView(model, "sign-in.hbs");
        }, new HandlebarsTemplateEngine());

The main point is to make this post /sign-in to be redirected to / (or main page) while retrieving String username from the req.cookie.

Also you do not need to render things, thus you don't need the HandlebarTemplateEngine since you will just redirect it to / page which already has HandlebarTemplateEngine renderer. Thus, all related to modelling and preparing for rendering also can be deleted:

  1. Map<String, String> model
  2. model.put
  3. return new ModelAndView This how the code should looks like:

    post("/sign-in", (req, res) -> {
    
            String username = req.cookie("username");
            res.cookie("username", username);// put username to cookie
            res.redirect("/");
            return null
        });
    

    I hope this can help. Please try it
