MySQLi Log In User not allowing log in despite correct credentials?

My login form...

<form action="" class="form-signin" name="prescIN" method="post">
<h1 class="h3 mb-3 font-weight-normal"><button class="btn btn-sm btn-primary"><i class="fal fa-user-md fa-2x"></i></button> Please sign in</h1>

<?php if (isset($_GET["f"]) && $_GET["f"] == 1) { ?><small class="text-danger"><em>The login details you have entered are incorrect.</em></small><?php } ?>

<label for="inputEmail" class="sr-only">E-mail address</label>
<input type="email" name="prescEMAIL" id="prescEMAIL" class="form-control" placeholder="E-mail address" required autofocus>

<label for="inputPassword" class="sr-only">Password</label>
<input type="password" name="prescPASS" id="prescPASS" class="form-control" placeholder="Password" required>

<div class="checkbox mb-3">
<input type="checkbox" value="remember-me" name="prescMINDME"> Remember me

<button class="btn btn-lg btn-primary btn-block" type="submit" name="prescinBTN" id="prescinBTN">Sign in</button>

The behaviour code...

<?php require_once('webassist/mysqli/authentication.php'); ?>
$Authenticate = new WA_MySQLi_Auth($csdbmysqli);
$Authenticate->Action = "authenticate";
$Authenticate->Trigger = (isset($_POST["prescinBTN"]) || isset($_POST["prescinBTN_x"]));
$Authenticate->Name = "prescIN";
$Authenticate->Table = "DGPSTteam";
$Authenticate->addFilter("teamEMAIL", "=", "s", "".((isset($_GET["prescEMAIL"]))?$_GET["prescEMAIL"]:"") ."");
$Authenticate->addFilter("teamPASS", "=", "s", "".((isset($_GET["prescPASS"]))?$_GET["prescPASS"]:"") ."");
$Authenticate->storeResult("teamID", "prescID");
$Authenticate->storeResult("teamACCESS", "prescACC");
$Authenticate->storeResult("teamTITLE", "prescTITLE");
$Authenticate->storeResult("teamFIRST", "prescFIRST");
$Authenticate->storeResult("teamSUR", "prescSUR");
$Authenticate->storeResult("teamIMG", "prescIMG");
$Authenticate->RememberMe = isset($_POST["prescinBTN"]) || isset($_POST["prescinBTN_x"]);
$Authenticate->SaveLogin = " == ";
$Authenticate->AutoLogin = true;
$Authenticate->AutoReturn = false;
$SuccessRedirect = "admin.php";
$FailedRedirect = "staff.php?f=1";
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;

Despite entering the correct credentials it always jumps to the FailedRedirect URL.

Anything obvious with the above?
Thank you.

Your form method is POST but the form element references are using GET in the code.

The MySQLi Log In User behaviour automatically generated GET, and if I set the form method to GET it doesn't work either.

Should the behaviour be setting the form element references using POST?

Thank you.

I've manually changed the form element references to POST and it appeared to be letting me log in successfully, however no matter what credentials I use the same user is always logged in. I attach a URL and two separate login credentials, privately below, to allow you to test that.

I'm wondering if this is all related to the problems I'm also having with the Log Out User and Restrict Access to Page behaviours which I've reported separately here:

I don't understand the "Enable automatic login" section in the Log In User behaviour, however when I uncheck this it produces an error in the behaviour code. Could you explain the Auto-login Check and Remember-me Check sections? I have a suspicion that this might also be contributing to the problems I'm experiencing.

Thank you Ray

Your admin.php page was filtering the recordset with:

teamID = $_SESSION['prescACC']

The value of prescACC for both users is 1. You want to be filtering it with

teamID = $_SESSION['prescID']

I've made the change on your page and it works now.
