Accessing Password Protected Folders

user_profile page

Jason, my client requested that an additional input field be added to registration (Company), so I manually added these fields (UserCompanyand the User_Level) to the database and the user_update.php and user_details.php files. Both appear to be functioning properly and this data can be edited (added) using these two files. I am looking at the other files to see which ones need to be edited as well. In the over-all scheme of things, is this an acceptable method versus creating a new form for this? Is this what you were referring to in terms of adding a form?

The intent as I mentiond above, is for the registrant to be taken directly to his protected folder once the appropriate level has been inserted into the database and upon upon log-in afterwards. I have added the snippet of code above for each dealer level on the user_profile.php file.

As you know, once sucessfully logged in, there is a link in the present file at the bottom of the page for taking the user to the protected_page.php file. In addition to adding the code described above, what other modifications need to be made on this page to make this work? I presume this link should be removed or modified? At present, just by adding the code to this page, it does not work.

Please advise.
