Jason, thank you for your response.
Ok, zip file attached.
Basically I would like to show text on the index.php page if the logged in user's record contains a 0 in the verified field of the same sql table.
There is another element here. If a 0 does exist, the 'update' server behaviour in the index.php page, places a 1 in the verified field of the logged in user record. This should be a one time event triggered on the first users 1st visit to the index.php page.
