Default Using the echo language construct

I'm pretty new to php and still am not understanding some things.

I am going through a tutorial on making a membership log-in system i got it working mostly. the issue I'm having now is that the way the tutorial was set up is that when a user is logged in it echoes out a message "welcome user" or something like that. however i would like to have it echo out the webpage i have already created. i looked it up and saw that you can't add quotes within the echo string. is there another way i can have the echo statement show the webpage without me having to input the html (and fix all the quotes) after within the string?

the code i have right now is

PHP Code:
$userid $_SESSION['userid'];
$username $_SESSION['username'];

if (
$username && $userid){
"Welcome Sydesign!";
"Please login to access this page. <a href='../login.php'>Login here</a>";

where it says "Welcome Sydesign!" i want it to display the webpage i already created. I'm sure there are many other ways to do this and I'm open to anything i just want to learn how to do it right.

thank you so much for any help.

it might be simpler to use location to redirect if they are logged in try this (edit the page name of course )

error_reporting (E_ALL ^ E_NOTICE );
$userid = $_SESSION['userid'];
$username = $_SESSION['username'];

if ($username && $userid){
   header( 'Location: http://www.yoursite.com/new_page.html' ) ;
    echo "Please login to access this page. <a href='../login.php'>Login here</a>";

If you're happy and you know it shake your meds!

okay thank you. I got it to work finally. Figured out how to make a heredoc statement work and it seems to be working fine for now. But that will be good to know for the further thank you!
