    Specific incorporating problem - easy

    Hi.. this is kind of a very specific problem.
    I have a login-script on my site and it's working like a charm.
    Only problem is that when you log in you are directed to a very boring site, log.php:

    PHP Code:
    <? 
    // This is the main part, log.php

    // Constants
    include("cons.php");
    // If the user exists
    if ($user) {
      echo 
    "Welcome ".$user."! "// Welcome message
      
    echo "Menu: "// shows the menu
      
    echo "(<a href=\"inbox.php\">Inbox</a> | "// creates inbox button
      
    echo "<a href=\"login.php?out=yes&user=$user\">Logout</a> | ";// Logout button
      
    echo "<a href=\"edit.php\">Edit Account</a>";
      if (
    $admin) {
      echo 
    " | <a href=\"admin.php\">Admin Centre</a> | ";
      }
      if (
    $mod) {
      echo 
    " <a href=\"mod.php\">Moderator Centre</a> | "
      }
      echo 
    ")";
      echo 
    " ";
      
      
    /****************************************************/
      /***** This shows how many users are active and *****/
      /*********** it shows their names too! **************/
      /****************************************************/
      
      
    $ro mysql_query("SELECT * FROM active_users");
      
    $active mysql_num_rows($ro); // sets $active as the number of active users
      
    echo "Currently active users: ".$active.", "// lists the number of active users
      
      // Actually lists the users
      
    while ($ra mysql_fetch_array($ro)) {
        
    $name $ra['name']; // Sets $name as the users' names
        
        // Lists the users names
        
    if ($i != ($active 1)) { // if $i doesn't equal $active minus 1
          
    echo $name." | ";
        }
        else {
          echo 
    $name;
        }
        
      
    $i++; // increase temp variable
      
    }
      
    /******************************************/
      /********** End of active users! **********/
      /******************************************/
    }
    else {
    if (
    $reg) {
    echo 
    $reg;
    }
    /********** Show the login form ************/

    Now, I would like to incorporate the most essential things from this script into the main site, which would be like a members-index.php for members that are logged in. The codes for the main site are here:

    All you need to do is track the with sessions or cookies. I like to use cookies for things I obviously want to keep for a long period of time. Sessions are good in the other case, or even with cookies for the users pass and username.


    Anyway, here is a method you might find usefull.

    PHP Code:

    // We checked if they're logged in above using your code...

    if($user) { setcookie("user"$usertime()+3600) or die("Unable to set cookie!"); $sc true; }
    if(
    $mod) { setcookie("mod"$modtime()+3600) or die("Unable to set cookie!"); $sc true; }
    if(
    $admin) { setcookie("admin"$admintime()+3600) or die("Unable to set cookie!"); $sc true; }

    if(
    $sc) {
      
    header("Location: http://example.com/index.php"); // Take us back to the index where the cookies will be used to define what will be shown on the index.

    Then on the index you use an if/elseif/elseif/else statement to set the different things that will be shown. The last else will be for a guest. I'm not exactly sure how you work your script but that would probably work.

    And in the statements to call the cookie it would be $_COOKIE['user'], $_COOKIE['mod'], $_COOKIE['admin'], so you would need to find out which one is set. This could be done with one cookie but I wasn't sure what is exactly in the variables...

    Hmm... okay.. that sounds reasonable..
    uhm.. you talk about a cookie that detects which coockie is set ($admin, $mod or $user). What would the coding of that coockie be? .. I'm not all that good at this ..

    Oh and the call of the coockies.. could you give me a structure for those?
    Thanks a lot

    no it would just be:

    PHP Code:
    if(isset($_COOKIE['user']) && $_COOKIE['user'] ==  "Whatever it should") {
      
    // Do Users stuff, if the user cookie is set
    } elseif(isset($_COOKIE['mod']) && $_COOKIE['mod'] ==  "Whatever it should") ) {
      
    // Do Mod stuff, if the mod cookie is set.
    } elseif(isset($_COOKIE['admin']) && $_COOKIE['admin'] ==  "Whatever it should") ) {
      
    // Do Admin stuff, if the admin cookie is set
    } else {
      
    // Do Guest stuff, because no cookies were found.

    Ahh... I see.. well that makes so much more sence

    Oh just one more thing - "Whatever it should" ??? .. meaning whatever it should do? .. whatever it should be set to? .. whatever the value of the coockie?.. bear with me.. I'm a noob

    Is this supposed to be a security measure? I can edit my cookies...
    I'm not sure if this was any help, but I hope it didn't make you stupider.

    Hey let me try to translate (I never even tried to learn danish)
    So far I've got:
    "Welcome to ythe official homepage of dingodsimes.
    Some of the pages are constantly in construction(?)..."
    Is that "dingodsimes" a religion?
    I'm not sure if this was any help, but I hope it didn't make you stupider.

    hehe you catch on quick..

    The first couple of lines say

    "Welcome to the official homepage of the dingodism. (check the header-picture )
    As you can see the page is still under construcktion, but pretty soon there will be losts of fun stuff"

    So nice guess

    dingodismen [da] = dingodism [en]

    Yeah it's kind of a religion - purely for the fun of it - I'll have an english version ready soon

    Anyways...could you help me with my problem? .. It's really buggin' me

    hehe.. thanks

    What more is there to help with? Just do as I instructed. And you may be able to edit your cookies marek_mar, which is why its checking to make sure it equals the parameter the script gave the cookie. Try what I explained, and post back with ay problems that might be in the code, or something you might have done to make it throw a fit.

    uhm... okay.. here we go then.. I modified the log.php to fit with the you gave me above... now it's like this:

    PHP Code:
    <?  
    // This is the main part, log.php 

    // Constants 
    include("cons.php"); 
    // If the user exists 
    if($user) { setcookie("user"$usertime()+3600) or die("Unable to set cookie!"); $sc true; } 
    if(
    $mod) { setcookie("mod"$modtime()+3600) or die("Unable to set cookie!"); $sc true; } 
    if(
    $admin) { setcookie("admin"$admintime()+3600) or die("Unable to set cookie!"); $sc true; } 

    if(
    $sc) { 
      
    header("Location: another.php"); // Take us back to the index where the cookies will be used to define what will be shown on the index. 

    else { 
    if (
    $reg) { 
    echo 
    $reg

    /********** Show the login form ************/ 
    ?> 
    <html> 
    <head> 
    <style type="text/css" media="screen"> 
    <!-- 
    #regi { 
        position: absolute; 
        width: 130px; 
        top: 135px; 
        left: 435px; 
        border: 1px solid #000; 
        background-color: #e0eeee; 
        padding: 10px; 
        z-index: 3; 
        } 
    --></style> 


    <body bgcolor="#e0eeee"> 
    <div id="regi"> 
    <form action="login.php"> 
    <input type="text" name="name"> Username<br> 
    <input type="password" name="pass"> Password<br> 
    <input type="submit" value="Login!"> 
    </form> 
    Er du endnu ikke registreret? Så <a href="reg.php">klik her</a> og bliv det! 
    </div> 
    <br><br><br> 
    <a href="index.php" target="_self">Tilbage til forsiden</a> 
    </body> 
    </html> 
    <? 
    /*********** End of login form ************/ 

    ?>
    BTW the first couple of lines are the changed ones..

    Then I tried to use the cookies on my member's index:

    PHP Code:
    <div id="member">
    <?
    if(isset($_COOKIE['user'])) { 
      echo 
    "Welcome ".$user."! "// Welcome message 
      
    echo "Menu: "// shows the menu 
      
    echo "(<a href=\"inbox.php\">Inbox</a> | "// creates inbox button 
      
    echo "<a href=\"login.php?out=yes&user=$user\">Logout</a> | ";// Logout button 
      
    echo "<a href=\"edit.php\">Edit Account</a>"
    } elseif(isset(
    $_COOKIE['admin'])) { 
      echo 
    " | <a href=\"admin.php\">Admin Centre</a> | ";
    } elseif(isset(
    $_COOKIE['mod'])) { 
      echo 
    " <a href=\"mod.php\">Moderator Centre</a> | ";
    } echo 
    ")"
      echo 
    " "

    ?>

    </div>
    This is what I've tried - it seems logical to me, but the problem is, that no matter who logs in they are treated as "user". That's the problem right now..
    Really hope you can help me

    The code in the last php section. Change the elseif to if. Admins have all 3 cookies set and mods two. You could use only one cookie with a user level stored. But you don't have to.
    I'm not sure if this was any help, but I hope it didn't make you stupider.
