redirecting a web page along with session info

Recommended Posts

i have a self executable login script with a form that validates login credentials when you click the submit button.

what could i do to get it to redirect the user to another page as soon as it validates the user and carries the session variable on to the new script?

If the variable is set in the session then there's no need to do anything.

Redirect using the header() function.

if ($username == $validated){
  // if the user is validated then redirect using header
  header("Location: redirect.php");

Assuming your user is saved in a session variable then you should be able to access like so... [code=php:0]echo $_SESSION['username'];[/code] assuming that your variable is called [color=green]username[/color]
