first-time user logs in, show a dialog

The first time a user logs into my app, I’d like to show them a jQuery dialog with general information.

To check whether a user has logged in, I can check the last_login field in the mySQL database–if it’s empty, then the user hasn’t yet logged in.

I also know how to setup jQuery dialogs.

But I don’t think I can use jQuery and mySQL together, so I’d like to know what others have used to solve this problem.

I’m using Codeigniter for my framework.
