login then display customer table row

Hey everyone,

My question:

After a user registers, they then log in, then they are taken to a members.php page to see their acctount information off of the same table. The issue I have is the member.php page is not showing their information it is just pulling from the first record in the table. whats the code to only display the information for whom ever is logged in at that time??

when the user logs in, a session variable is created with their ID form the users table.

On the members page, set the recordset to filter the ID column of the users table on the ID session that is created.

if you need more specific detail, send a copy of your login page and the members page in a zip archive.

Hi Jason

I figured out the session name, thats what I needed. Now I have another issue, I have a user table and products table, after the user logs in i want them to be able to "update" a product they are wanting... however I need this to stay dynamic meaning if they have loaded the product into their account, if I change the product "options" (name, total, anything) it will change instantly on the user table. I have biult the relations correct I think. I have attached a simple demo of what I need it to do (included the db too)... Thank you for your assistance.

your approach for this is not correct.

For one, to relate a product from the products table to the user, you should only store the productID in the users table, then use a join query to return the related info from the products table, for example:

SELECT users.*, products.*
FROM users
INNER JOIN Products ON users.productID = products.ProductID

however, this structure is very limiting, it is create a 1 to many relationship. it means that a user can only have 1 product, you would probably want any one user to have multiopple products.

for this you would need to create a many to many relationship using a linking table.

for exampl:

userID - primary key
userName - text

productID - primary key
productName - text

userProductID - primary Key
userProductUserID - relates to users.userID
userProductProductID - relates to products.productID

the join query to use would now be:

SELECT users.*, products.*
FROM users
INNER JOIN userProducts ON users.userID = userProducts.userProductsUerID
INNER JOIN products ON products.productID = userProducts.userProductsProductID
