page redirection based on user

Hey Jason

Am trying to get this to redirect to a specific page if its specifically a user and another page if it isnt that user. The code isnt working as it takes all users to the news_results page regardless if they have UserID 6 or not.

<?php require_once('../Connections/DBConnection.php'); ?>
<?php require_once('../webassist/mysqli/rsobj.php'); ?>
<?php
$Users = new WA_MySQLi_RS("Users",$DBConnection,1);
$Users->setQuery("SELECT UserID FROM pcms2_users");
$Users->execute();
?>
<html>
<title></title>
<body>
<?php
if ("".($Users->getColumnVal("UserID")) ."" == "6") { // Show If
?><script type="text/javascript">
window.location.replace("product_contents_results.php");
</script>
<?php
} // ("".($Users->getColumnVal("UserID")) ."" == "6")
?>
<?php
if ("".($Users->getColumnVal("UserID")) ."" != "6") { // Show If
?><script type="text/javascript">
window.location.replace("news_results.php");
</script>
<?php
} // ("".($Users->getColumnVal("UserID")) ."" != "6")
?>

</body>
</html>



There is probably a more elegant solution that you may be able to point me in the right direction for?

Cheers

Hi Jamie,

just wondered if you were using javascript for a reason

would it not be easier using php ?

header("Location: ".redirectURL);

No reason at all Craig and have tried your suggestion but it doesnt change the 'result' I'm afraid

EDIT; sorry, it only did the same thing as I had the syntax incorrectly ...

using the php method, I am getting

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/iteacvh1/public_html/admin_cms/index.php:11) in /home/iteacvh1/public_html/admin_cms/index.php on line 28



I have modified the code within the show if statements as follows:

<?php
header("Location: http://www.domain.co.uk/admin_cms/news_results.php"); /* Redirect browser */
?>

it looks like what your sql statement is doing is returning the first row in the table

Assuming the user is logged in, could you not ditch the recordset and use $_SESSION['UserID']

<!doctype html>
<html>
<?php
@session_start;
if ($_SESSION['UserID'] = 6) {
header("Location: http://www.domain.co.uk/product_contents_results.php"); /* Redirect browser */
} else {
header("Location: http://www.domain.co.uk/news_results.php"); /* Redirect browser */
} ?>
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>Untitled Document</title>
</head>

<body>
</body>
</html>

Am getting this error

hmm, shouldn't be anything going to the screen, you could try adding exit();

eg

php:
<?php if ($_SESSION['UserID'] = 6) {

    
header("Location: http://www.domain.co.uk/product_contents_results.php"); /* Redirect browser */
    
exit();
} else {
    
header("Location: http://www.domain.co.uk/news_results.php"); /* Redirect browser */
    
exit();
?>

code order, you have the redirect after the doctype:

<!doctype html>
<html>
<?php
@session_start;
if ($_SESSION['UserID'] = 6) {
header("Location: http://www.domain.co.uk/product_contents_results.php"); /* Redirect browser */
} else {
header("Location: http://www.domain.co.uk/news_results.php"); /* Redirect browser */
} ?>




the redirect should be the first code block:

<?php
@session_start;
if ($_SESSION['UserID'] = 6) {
header("Location: http://www.domain.co.uk/product_contents_results.php"); /* Redirect browser */
} else {
header("Location: http://www.domain.co.uk/news_results.php"); /* Redirect browser */
} ?><!doctype html>
<html>
