Jason -- my server error is gone this morning.
That said, I still not getting Access Control. Do I need to add a users table recordset to the pages I want to control? OR does the 'SESSION_id' provide that info?
I have added the username from the users table I want to have access to the Rules Manager group. The value box has "<?php echo $_SESSION['id']; ?>" in it, and the Criteria is "in Group". Compare to is admin, with the username included in that group.
ETA: Checked for PHP errors -- none reported. . .
