Sub Access Pages

I have created a members only section that uses username and password to access it. Within the members section, I have a separate section that only certain members can access, i.e. Students.

Within my database I created a userLevel entry, integer, that is equal to 1 if you can access the Students section. I am stuck. I have tried the session variables and creating a rule if userLevel = 1. I am certain I'm missing a step on relating the username or primary id to be able to pull the record.

I hope this doesn't sound to jumbled, but right now, that's where my head is. The members section is working beautifully, it's the subsection that I cannot figure out how to access. My other option was to try and create a link that would show if userLevel = 1, but right now my PHP level isn't that advanced.

Thanks for your time and any feedback.

your main users table needs to have the user level column. for students, this column will be set to 1 for non students, set that column to 0.

then in the authenticate user server behavior on the login page, go to the third step and set the user level column to be stored in a session on login.

from there, you are on the right track of creating the rule to allow access if the userlevel session is equal to 1.

for details on this, see the userlevel tutorial on the security assist support page.
