Well, I've gotten through the authentication mechanics, and, although
Monty and several others posted some simple but usefull techniques to
create user authentication for a Web-Enabled time sheet application, I
decided to create a separate database and table for the users, for
several reasons. Most important was to keep the mysql user tables out
of harms way.
Problem I'm having is variables getting set but, not staying alive after
authentication is successful. This may be a little off topic, but, if
anyone knows a way to keep user-defined variables alive while going from
page to page, I could sure use a tip. If anyone's interested, I could
send source code for the authentication scheme.
