on my login script i want it to display a message only if they have got the username and password wrong more than once. I have tried various while loops and so on but cant get it to only display one time because of the loop it keeps displaying the message again and again.

I'm not sure I follow what your doing... whats w/ the loops? Maybe post a bit of code.

I use php session to track failed loggins...


//check for valid log in.
//if it works, log them in,
//if it fails...
$_SESSION['logInAttempts'] = ++; //add 1 to the current value.
if($_SESSION['logInAttempts'] > 3){
header("Location: youLose_nowGoAway.php");
Then, in your form, when it reloads

failed Login. You have attempted to log in <?php echo $_SESSION['logInAttempts'] ?> time(s)
