Below if part of my login script. I am trying to get it to redirect if the users account status is 'not verified' or 'suspended' (not verified is the field 'verified' = 0 and suspended is 'verified' = 2)

I'm sure it could be coded a little more eloquently, but this is what I have...anyone see why its not redirecting for non-verified/suspended users? (It does, however, redirect to the other pages(change.php and my.php) without a problem.)

$sql="SELECT * FROM users WHERE username='$myusername' and password='$mypassword'";
$result=mysql_query($sql);
$info = mysql_fetch_array($result, MYSQL_ASSOC);
// Mysql_num_row is counting table row
$count=mysql_num_rows($result);
// If result matched $myusername and $mypassword, table row must be 1 row

if($count==1){
	if ($info['verified'] == 0) {
		$url = "notverified.php";
		$redirect = "other";
		} 
	if ($info['verified'] == 2){
		$url = "suspended.php";
		$redirect = "other";
		}
	if ($myusername == "10001" && !($redirect == "other"))
		{$url = "change.php";
		}
	if (!($myusername == "10001") && !($redirect == "other"))
		{$url = "my.php";
		}
	session_register("myusername");
	session_register("mypassword"); 
}else
	{$url = "login.php";}
echo("<script>
	<!--
	location.replace(\"".$url."\");
	-->
	</script>");

Try this:

$sql="SELECT * FROM users WHERE username='" . $myusername . "' and password='" . $mypassword . "'";
$result=mysql_query($sql);


$info = mysql_fetch_array($result, MYSQL_ASSOC);

// If result matched $myusername and $mypassword, table row must be 1 row
if(count($info)==1){
	if ((int)$info['verified'] == 0) {
		$url = "notverified.php";
		$redirect = "other";
		} 
	elseif ((int)$info['verified'] == 2){
		$url = "suspended.php";
		$redirect = "other";
		}
	elseif ($myusername == "10001" && !($redirect == "other"))
		{$url = "change.php";
		}
	elseif (!($myusername == "10001") && !($redirect == "other"))
		{$url = "my.php";
		}
	session_register("myusername");
	session_register("mypassword"); 
}else
	{$url = "login.php";}
echo("<script>
	<!--
	location.replace(\"".$url."\");
	-->
	</script>");

I appreciate the input. Thanks.

Tried it and its a no-go though(it just redirects EVERY user back to the login screen).

In the original code, the records are being retrieved from the database properly as it redirects to the other 2 pages fine(registered user page and the admin page) meaning it validates the login successfuly.

I assume the glitch is somewhere in the "IF" statements...multiple If/Else's give me a headache LOL

Hmmm...perhaps its easier to just put a small script at the beginning on the redirected page(s) to check the status of the verified field, then redirect from there...just wanted to avoid an extra call to the DB(and an extra redirect).

AHA!

This worked though:

// username and password sent from signup form 
$myusername=$_POST['myusername']; 
$mypassword=$_POST['mypassword']; 

$sql="SELECT * FROM users WHERE username='$myusername' and password='$mypassword'";
$result=mysql_query($sql);
$count=mysql_num_rows($result);
$redirect = "allowed";
$info = mysql_fetch_array($result, MYSQL_ASSOC);

// If result matched $myusername and $mypassword, table row must be 1 row
if($count==1){
	switch ($info['verified']){
		case 0:
			$url = "notverified.php";
			$redirect = "not_allowed";
			break; 
		case 2:
			$url = "suspended.php";
			$redirect = "not_allowed";
			break;
		} 
	if ($redirect == "allowed"){
			switch ($myusername){
				case '10001':
					$url = "change.php";
					break; 
				default:
					$url = "my.php";
					break;
			}
		} 
	session_register("myusername");
	session_register("mypassword"); 
}
if (!($count==1)){
	$url = "login.php";}
echo("<script>
	<!--
	location.replace(\"".$url."\");
	-->
	</script>");

I realize this is marked as solved, but I'm guessing your problem with the original code comes from depending on values of undeclared variables.

(I.e., you need to define $redirect outside the scope of your IF statements. You seem to have accounted for this in your working code.)

That is quite possible. Thanks for the input :)

Although I thought PHP(atleast in newer versions) allowed variables to be defined 'on-the-fly'. (as an example - $url variable is not previously defined)..or perhaps its just tempermental lol

Yes, this is the case.

However, you still need to be sure of a variable's scope. Since you are setting the value of $redirect inside an IF statement scope (i.e., between the curly braces {}), the third and fourth IF statement conditions will fail, as they are not in the same scope where $redirect is given a value.

If you define $redirect before the start of your group of IF statements, they will share the same scope, and your code will pass.

From orig. code:

if ($info['verified'] == 0) {
    $url = "notverified.php";
    $redirect = "other";
}
if ($info['verified'] == 2){
    $url = "suspended.php";
    $redirect = "other";
}
if ($myusername == "10001" && !($redirect == "other")){
    $url = "change.php"
}
if (!($myusername == "10001") && !($redirect == "other")){
    $url = "my.php";
}

Note: if ($myusername == "10001" && !($redirect == "other")) . Even though you are setting $redirect = "other" above, it is defined in a scope which is unaccessible at this point, and this line fails as a result. In other words, $redirect in this scope is undefined.

You can get PHP to tell you when you are using uninitialized variables.

Hope this clears it up.
