I am currently working on the login part of my script... it does all the database checking to see if everything is correct and that works but now im working on the session part this is what I have...

code:
if ($thepassfromdb[0]===$thesubmittedpass){
LoginSuccess($_POST["name"]);
echo("You Have Logged In.<br>");
} else {
echo("Incorrect Password.");
}


function LoginSuccess($user)
{
session_register("username");
$_session["username"] = $user;
}



thats the basics to get what im doing... I dont get any error when logging in and I did an echo to see if it got made the session and it did... but when I click on a link to goto something else on the member page it doesn't keep the session info...

btw both the login & member page im trying to goto are in the same php file... and just incase you're curious I do have session_start(); at the very top... sorry about the title mis-spelling I was typing fast and didn't realize until after I submitted...

a) read the documentation - session_register and $_SESSION [note case] should not be used at the same time
b) $thesumbittedpass - argh. Use $_POST, always, like you do one line later. (and you should probably be using teh name from the db, not the one the user passed in
c) turn on error reporting with php->error_reporting (as in error_reporting(E_ALL) - which would have told you that $_session doesn't exist).

so long,

im a complete newbie when it comes to sessions & cookies... this is my first attempt :/

I did a isset to check if it was set and it said no... can someone point me to a tutorial that knows wtf its doing? lol I just need something simple that'll let me set the session info and coutinue to carry it after a link has been clicked...

also $thesumbittedpass isn't whats really there thats just explaining whats there in my code... im thinking of instead of putting the username there im going to get their userid from the database and use that instead... makes it easier I guess... maybe im wrong

btw tankerz for the welcome!

I read that... infact thats why I joined this forum was to get help with that... becayse it didn't help me... I was told by someone that you have to register the variable name first...

I just dont get what im doing wrong... all these tutorials just show something so simple and yet when I do it, it doesn't work...
