Special Registration issues

ok - I've finally gotten back to this irritating problem I've been having for months...

Here's how the easy log in feature should work...

1. The registration page checks the email for duplication - redirects to duplicate.php
2. password is there
3. orgcode exists in the database

Here's how it works!

Currently, We let EVERYONE sign up because I can't get the script to validate that an orgcode exists first... Subsequently, the general public being who they are put passwords in orgcodes, orgcodes in passwords etc...

I have followed the instructions laid out by Jason B and I can't get it to work, mainly, due to the fact I have NO IDEA how to "filter the orgcode column on the posted orgcode form element."

Can someone explain what that means to a dumb ass like me please?

Here is my final code...

<?php require_once('../Connections/Users.php'); ?>
<?php require_once("../WA_ValidationToolkit/WAVT_Scripts_PHP.php"); ?>
<?php require_once("../WA_ValidationToolkit/WAVT_ValidatedForm_PHP.php"); ?>
if (!function_exists("GetSQLValueString")) {
function GetSQLValueString($theValue, $theType, $theDefinedValue = "", $theNotDefinedValue = "")
if (PHP_VERSION < 6) {
$theValue = get_magic_quotes_gpc() ? stripslashes($theValue) : $theValue;

$theValue = function_exists("mysql_real_escape_string") ? mysql_real_escape_string($theValue) : mysql_escape_string($theValue);

switch ($theType) {
case "text":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
case "long":
case "int":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? intval($theValue) : "NULL";
case "double":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? doubleval($theValue) : "NULL";
case "date":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
case "defined":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? $theDefinedValue : $theNotDefinedValue;
return $theValue;

$colname_orgcode = "-1";
if (isset($_POST['orgcode'])) {
$colname_orgcode = (get_magic_quotes_gpc()) ? $_POST['orgcode'] : addslashes($_POST['orgcode']);
mysql_select_db($database_Users, $Users);
$query_orgcode = sprintf("SELECT * FROM orgcode WHERE orgcode = %s", GetSQLValueString($colname_orgcode, "text"));
$orgcode = mysql_query($query_orgcode, $Users) or die(mysql_error());
$row_orgcode = mysql_fetch_assoc($orgcode);
$totalRows_orgcode = mysql_num_rows($orgcode);
if ((((isset($_POST["Register"]))?$_POST["Register"]:"") != "")) {
$WAFV_Redirect = "access-denied.php";
$_SESSION['WAVT_register1_Errors'] = "";
if ($WAFV_Redirect == "") {
$WAFV_Redirect = $_SERVER["PHP_SELF"];
$WAFV_Errors = "";
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateNM($totalRows_orgcode . "",-1,0,"",",.",true,1);

if ($WAFV_Errors != "") {

// *** Redirect if username exists
if (isset($_POST[$MM_flag])) {
$loginUsername = $_POST['emailaddress'];
$LoginRS__query = sprintf("SELECT emailaddress FROM users WHERE emailaddress=%s", GetSQLValueString($loginUsername, "text"));
mysql_select_db($database_Users, $Users);
$LoginRS=mysql_query($LoginRS__query, $Users) or die(mysql_error());
$loginFoundUser = mysql_num_rows($LoginRS);

//if there is a row in the database, the username was found - can not add the requested username
$MM_qsChar = "?";
//append the username to the redirect page
if (substr_count($MM_dupKeyRedirect,"?") >=1) $MM_qsChar = "&";
$MM_dupKeyRedirect = $MM_dupKeyRedirect . $MM_qsChar ."requsername=".$loginUsername;
header ("Location: $MM_dupKeyRedirect");
$editFormAction = $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];
if (isset($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'])) {
$editFormAction .= "?" . htmlentities($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING']);
if ((isset($_POST["MM_insert"])) && ($_POST["MM_insert"] == "WAATKRegistrationForm")) {
$insertSQL = sprintf("INSERT INTO users (emailaddress, password, orgcode, receiveEmails) VALUES (%s, %s, %s, %s)",
GetSQLValueString($_POST['emailaddress'], "text"),
GetSQLValueString($_POST['password'], "text"),
GetSQLValueString($_POST['orgcode'], "text"),
GetSQLValueString($_POST['receiveEmails'], "text"));

mysql_select_db($database_Users, $Users);
$Result1 = mysql_query($insertSQL, $Users) or die(mysql_error());

$insertGoTo = "thank-you-for-registering.php";
if (isset($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'])) {
$insertGoTo .= (strpos($insertGoTo, '?')) ? "&" : "?";
$insertGoTo .= $_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'];
header(sprintf("Location: %s", $insertGoTo));
