Embedding HTML help

Recommended Posts

Hi i'm having trouble embedding HTML in some PHP coding. Was wondering if someone could explain to me what i'm doing wrong:

[i]<?php
session_start();

if( @$_SESSION['login']!="yes")
{
echo" NOT LOGGED IN";
exit();
}
else
{
if(@$_SESSION['user']!="")
{
$username = $_SESSION['user'];

}


}

?>

<html>

<head>
<title>Top</title>
<base target="right-frame">
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css">

</head>


<body>

<DIV ALIGN = "right"><img src="welcome.gif"></DIV>

<?php echo"You are logged in as  $username ";?>

</body>

</html>
[/i]

Thanks in advance

I'd just like to point out that that is a bad way to do authentication and can be circumvented quite easily. Remeber that the user can change $_SESSION variables himself, so he could manually set $_SESSION["login"] and $_SESSION["user"].
