Hi guys, im building a school site where parents are suppose to login to veiw their childrens poins, merits demerits etc.

aims:

1) user registration system - wich i accomplised through the login server behaviour

2) sucsessful logins should go to a profile page only seeing the info of their child - this is where i got stuck

im fairly new to php and databases, after many strugles i came to the solution of recalling the students data in the same way you recall the firstname of the user in a greatings message.

In detail:

In the "successful login" page I created a resticted server behaviour.

I created a record set to retrieve all the fields from the database i need (poins merits etc.)

with the filter: username, = , session variable, MM_Username to recal the username that was stored in the MM_Username session at login.

When i test this connection it askes for a test value on wich it successfully displays the record of the username i entered.

Then i proceed to the bindings tab and click and drag the recuired records where i desire in design veiw to create code like {get_user.Surname}.

this is as far as any manual could take me, after this it is supose to work but when i load it in a browser the spaces are just left blank!

since testing the recordset is successful im guessing the problem lies with the session MM_Username not storing the data?

Can anyone please tell me what im doing wrong, or even a beter suggestion on how to accomplish the profile page after login!

Perhaps the php code can help

$isValid = False;


// When a visitor has logged into this site, the Session variable MM_Username set equal to their username.
// Therefore, we know that a user is NOT logged in if that Session variable is blank.
if (!empty($UserName)) {
