Session Variables & Forgotten Password

Session Variables & Forgotten Password

Hi,
I have created pages using SA wizard, in server behaviour panel on login page I edit both instances of 'Security Assist Authenticate User' to add session values of 'SecurityAssist_ContactID', 'SecurityAssist_UserGroupID' & 'SecurityAssist_Firstname'. I havent created security on any pages yet as still early testing but I have the redirect go index.php?loggedIn=1 on successful login, is this wrong?

In index.php I dragged the 'SecurityAssist_Firstname' session from bindings tab onto page but it returns error of "Notice: Undefined variable: _SESSION in C:\wamp\www\index.php on line 175"

Lind 175 is "<span>Welcome back,<?php echo $_SESSION['SecurityAssist_ContactID']; ?> </span>"

Do I need to set security on all pages to get the session to follow through, I was under impression session stored anyway?

Thanks

Make sure you got: <?php session_start(); ?>
at the top of any page that your calling a session variable or you'll get that error

That's great Tracy, many thanks for your help, works a treat.

At present I am having to manually add code to each page that redirects depending on UserGroupID, is that the best way to work this do you know?

I have 4 groups, depending on who logs on they get a different home page I( have added this to a 'blank' home page used only to redirect users to their homepage:

<?php
if(!session_id()) session_start();
switch($_SESSION['SecurityAssist_UserGroupID']) {
case "2":
header("Location: direct_tblcontacts_Results.php");
break;
case "4":
header("Location: staff_tblcontacts_Results.php");
break;
case "5":
header("Location: admin_tblcontacts_Results.php");
break;
}
?>

Do you know if SA does this automatically?

Thanks again

Gary

That's the only way I know how to do it, though there may be a way with datassist I just have'nt figured it out yet.

Note also any pages created by the wizards or update pages, it will add itself. You'll only have to do that for your custom pages that you are calling
session variables from....
