Im trying to get the username of the person who has just signed to appear at the top of my index page. I had it working getting the name from the form and printing it on my index page but as soon as i add the login script to the form the username wont come through. Can anyone help me please??

index.php
[code]<?php require_once('Connections/conn_testing.php'); ?>
<?php
session_start();
header("Cache-control: private"); //IE 6 Fix
session_register("$username");
$username = $_POST['username'];
$_SESSION['username'] = $username
?>
<?php
echo 'Welcome to my website '.$_SESSION['username'];
?>
<?php
mysql_select_db($database_conn_testing, $conn_testing);
$query_rs_users = "SELECT id, username, password FROM users ORDER BY id ASC";
$rs_users = mysql_query($query_rs_users, $conn_testing) or die(mysql_error());
$row_rs_users = mysql_fetch_assoc($rs_users);
$totalRows_rs_users = mysql_num_rows($rs_users);
?>



<br />
<a href="test.php">users</a><br>
<a href="log.html">log</a>
<br>
<br>
<?php if(($_SESSION['MM_Username']) =="") { ?>
<a href="login.php">Login</a>
<?php } ?>

<?php if(($_SESSION['MM_Username']) !="") { ?>
<a href="logout.php">Logout</a>
<a href="add.php">add</a>
<?php } ?>

<!-- Repeat Region for Users -->
<?php do { ?>
<?php include('inc/users_tbl.php'); ?>
<?php } while ($row_rs_users = mysql_fetch_assoc($rs_users)); ?>
<?php
mysql_free_result($rs_users);
?>[/code]

login.php
[code]<?php require_once('Connections/conn_testing.php'); ?>
<?php
// *** Validate request to login to this site.
session_start();
header("Cache-control: private"); //IE 6 Fix  
?>
<?php
$loginFormAction = $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];
if (isset($accesscheck)) {
  $GLOBALS['PrevUrl'] = $accesscheck;
  session_register('PrevUrl');
}

if (isset($_POST['username'])) {
  $loginUsername=$_POST['username'];
  $password=$_POST['password'];
  $MM_fldUserAuthorization = "";
  $MM_redirectLoginSuccess = "index.php";
  $MM_redirectLoginFailed = "login.php?badlogin=true";
  $MM_redirecttoReferrer = false;
  mysql_select_db($database_conn_testing, $conn_testing);
  
  $LoginRS__query=sprintf("SELECT username, password FROM users WHERE username='%s' AND password='%s'",
    get_magic_quotes_gpc() ? $loginUsername : addslashes($loginUsername), get_magic_quotes_gpc() ? $password : addslashes($password));
  
  $LoginRS = mysql_query($LoginRS__query, $conn_testing) or die(mysql_error());
  $loginFoundUser = mysql_num_rows($LoginRS);
  if ($loginFoundUser) {
     $loginStrGroup = "";
    
    //declare two session variables and assign them
    $GLOBALS['MM_Username'] = $loginUsername;
    $GLOBALS['MM_UserGroup'] = $loginStrGroup;          

    //register the session variables
    session_register("MM_Username");
    session_register("MM_UserGroup");

    if (isset($_SESSION['PrevUrl']) && false) {
      $MM_redirectLoginSuccess = $_SESSION['PrevUrl'];    
    }
    header("Location: " . $MM_redirectLoginSuccess );
  }
  else {
    header("Location: ". $MM_redirectLoginFailed );
  }
}

Take out any instances of session_register as it is not needed. Doing $_SESSION[['username'] = $username would be sufficient. To create a session variable.
