How do you get the data from your database to display on the webpage?

How do you get the data from your database to display on the webpage?

I have two .php pages that I want the information from my database to populate on those pages. The first page is the account page where I want it to say "Welcome [User's first and last Name]!" and then I have a page where the user can update their information. The problem that I am experiencing is that nothing is showing up.

What do you mean by "nothing is showing up"? Does the page come up just the database information appears blank?

Correct. So on my account page instead of (example) "Welcome Ray Borduin!" it just says "Welcome !" And on the update page the fields do not reflect the information in the database (blank), and if I put in new information it does not update the record.

Can I see a copy of the login page? The only cause I can think of would be if the login page isn't setting the UserName session variable correctly.

You can test that theory. Add this to line 19 of the account.php page:

var_dump($_SESSION);
die();

See if there is a session variable for UserName set and if it is set to the value you expect.

Long story short I created a different session variable other than username. I delete that stored session and create the username session and it all worked just fine. I hope this is not creating a new thread inside of this thread, but in my other thread I asked about how when I use the log out how once I log back in, I'm returned to the last page I was one instead of the account.php page. Like you said before I unchecked the "return to restricted page (when applicable)" but it is still happening. Here is the first 20 lines of my code.

<?php
if ($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST") {
$Authenticate = new WA_MySQLi_Auth($localhost);
$Authenticate->Action = "authenticate";
$Authenticate->Name = "user";
$Authenticate->Table = "users";
$Authenticate->addFilter("UserName", "=", "s", "".((isset($_POST["userName"]))?$_POST["userName"]:"") ."");
$Authenticate->addFilter("Password", "=", "s", "".((isset($_POST["password"]))?$_POST["password"]:"") ."");
$Authenticate->storeResult("UserName", "UserName");
$Authenticate->AutoReturn = false;
$SuccessRedirect = "account.php";
$FailedRedirect = "fail.php";
if (function_exists("rel2abs")) $SuccessRedirect = $SuccessRedirect?rel2abs($SuccessRedirect,dirname(__FILE__)):"";
if (function_exists("rel2abs")) $FailedRedirect = $FailedRedirect?rel2abs($FailedRedirect,dirname(__FILE__)):"";
$Authenticate->SuccessRedirect = $SuccessRedirect;
$Authenticate->FailRedirect = $FailedRedirect;
$Authenticate->execute();
}
?>

It appears that there is a bug and the autoreturn setting is being ignored.

To fix the problem update the authentication.php page manually.

On or around line 89 you will see:
if (isset($_SESSION["WA_FAIL_".$this->Name])) {

change it to:
if ($this->AutoReturn && isset($_SESSION["WA_FAIL_".$this->Name])) {
