Hi!

Perhaps it will not change anything, but if I were you, I would use $_SESSION instead of session_register...

Otherwise and in any case, define your variables before calling session_register...

Usin this method you need to define the variables before you register them i.e.

Code: Select all

<?php
@session_start();
$userName        = 'hallo';
$userPermissions = 'no';
session_register('userName', 'userPermissions');
?>


As flood suggests using $_SESSION is not only easier to understand but there is less code. less code means less typing. less typing means less chance for typo's means less trouble debugging.
