View Full Version : User Authentication, dynamic select list, multilple user groups

02-26-2007, 03:18 PM
I am working on a very large dynamic site that was originally created using ASP by another company. I am trying to convert all the dynamic aspects of this site to php code. But I'm having a couple of problems. First off I am using Dreamweaver 8 and server side is Linux Red Hat with php 4.4.4 installed.

now, here's my problem. The original log in consisted of a username and password form with a dynamic select list with these options: administrator, coaches.
There are two administrators that should be sent to a set of pages allowing them to do things like email subscribers, change site pages and so on. The coaches should get logged in to a master detail type page that allows them to edit their "profile", team name, game times and that sort of thing.
I have the admin and coach pages pretty much complete, I just can't send the login form to them...

For the life of me I can't figure out how to make this happen. I'm not very well versed in php, I can read it and understand it but I don't write much more than a basic function or two.

Any ideas on how to make this login system work would be much appreciated. I'm way overdue on the deadline for this project.

Thanks much,
