Template login page not setting session values

Template login page not setting session values

I have a dreamweaver master template which contains a user-login form built using 'SecurityAssist'.

I have also created a child template based on the master .dwt, tailored for my client area.

My problem.

After creating a few .php pages from my child .dwt template, each containing a login form, i'm finding that the user-login pages work fine, but the 6 session variables set using the Server Behaviour 'SecurityAssist Authenticate User' are not capturing the respective session data from the logged in user record.

Previously I've had this area working fine - when not using template based login forms.
Is there something i'm missing when building login functionality into my .dwt pages?

Any advice welcome.

Thanks, Paul.

The best way to set up a login form on multiple pages, is to have the login form post to the login page. This way you only need to manage one Authenticate User server behavior.

It's tough to tell what the problem is with out seeing the code, but it sounds to me like the Authenticate user server behavior on the child .dwt page is not configured to store all of the same session variables as the other template is. If you take the Authenticate User Server behavior out of the template and have the login form post to the login page, you will only have to manage the login for the entire site in one place.
