Eric - Thank You - I got it to work
First thank you for hanging in there with this one. I finally figured it out. I did put the die command in the file and it DID NOT die at that place which led me to believe (obviously) that the script was not executing to that point.
So I simply worked my way back up the script and found that the redirectURL as set instead of being blank.
At the bottom of the details dB entry it does a redirect if the $redirect var is !="" which is wasn't.
SO needless to say, I'm launching our site today and I thank you very much.
Once you get your head our PowerStore it really is a total time saver and great product.
