Hello everyone and happy christmas,

I have a virtual pet website which has multiple level users, or if you like, different ranks from 1 - 10.

1 is suspended and 10 is master admin.

I have worked out how to give access to an admin page for users with the rank 6 and above for example but want to be able to say only members with ranks 6 and for example 7 and 10 can only access a admin page. I want to beable to individually give each level access to certain pages.


Here is the code for a particular page:

<?php

/*
Admin Main (admin.php)
*/

$page_title = "admin_access6.php";
$rank_check ==6;
include "../header.inc.php";

print "$openHTML";

$credit = $getGame[credit] / 100;

ECHO <<<END

As you can see this is setting this page access to ONLY level 6 due to the double ==. If it was a single = like $rank_check =6; then this would allow all ranks and levels of 6 and above access it.

So how would I make it so thatI could add allocated multiple levels to have access.

Would be much apprcieated any advice :)

Thank you kindly
Merry Christmas Everyone

Justin

Orig. code:

<?php

/*
Admin Main (admin.php)
*/

$page_title = "admin_access6.php";
$rank_check ==6;
include "../header.inc.php";

print "$openHTML";

$credit = $getGame[credit] / 100;

ECHO <<<END

As you can see this is setting this page access to ONLY level 6 due to the double ==.

The '==' operator checks for equality between two values; it does not assign a value to a variable. To assign a value to a variable, use the '=' operator.

Assuming that you have a variable named $rand_check and its value is 6, the line: $rank_check ==6; is the equivalent of this: TRUE; , which, though valid syntax, has no effect on logic of your code. If $rand_check is not actually set to 6, then $rank_check ==6; is the equivalent of this: FALSE; , which is, again, valid but totally pointless.

You need to do conditional processing based on the value of $rank_check. Code to follow.

If it was a single = like $rank_check =6; then this would allow all ranks and levels of 6 and above access it.

So how would I make it so thatI could add allocated multiple levels to have access.

Adapt as needed:

<?php
$page_title = "admin_access6.php";

if($rank_check == 6 || $rank_check == 7 || $rank_check == 8){
    include "../header.inc.php";

    print "$openHTML";

    $credit = $getGame[credit] / 100;

    ECHO <<<END
}

Thank you so much for your help.

I did try to include what you said but when I did I get the following error:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in /home/cyberpet/public_html/admin/admin_access6.php on line 517

The code on line 517 is:

print "$closeHTML";

I am very new to php so trying to understand what you said!:O)

Kind Regards
Justin

You have to make sure that you have the closing curly brace (i.e., } ) at bottom of your file. (It came from the IF statement I introduced.)

Also, not sure why you're doing this: ECHO <<<END , but try removing it.

For some reason I cannot get it to work. I have played around with the code and have coe up with this ..

<?php

$page_title = "admin_access6.php";
$rank_check == 6 || $rank_check == 7 || $rank_check == 8;

include "../header.inc.php";

print "$openHTML";

$credit = $getGame[credit] / 100;

ECHO <<<END

However, this doesnt work as it lets a level 10 access this page.

I see what you mean by having the if $rank check but this doesnt seem to work. I could use that to show/not the link to the page further on in the script but want to stop/allow actual access to viewing the page!

Please Help! lol
Kind Regards
Justin

Try this:

<?php

$page_title = "admin_access6.php";
if($rank_check != 6 && $rank_check != 7 && $rank_check != 8){
    exit;
}
include "../header.inc.php";

print "$openHTML";

$credit = $getGame[credit] / 100;

ECHO <<<END

I realize your understanding of PHP is low, but the line from your code: $rank_check == 6 || $rank_check == 7 || $rank_check == 8; does not do what you think it does. In fact, it doesn't do anything at all (in terms of conditional processing).

Thanks for being so patient bill.

I have included the entire document as im getting confused. I have included your latest butI get the following error:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in /home/cyberpet/public_html/admin/admin_access6.php on line 510

<?php
$page_title = "admin_access6.php";
if($rank_check != 6 && $rank_check != 7 && $rank_check != 8){
exit;
}
include "../header.inc.php";
print "$openHTML";
$credit = $getGame[credit] / 100;
ECHO <<<END

Thank you once again.

This change seems to now lock out access to all ranks. :S

I have made a few changes but none seem to work. I will keep trying and a determined to get there. lol


Justin :D

Im guessing this is it?

<?php

/*
Process Set Status (admin_status.pro.php)
*/

$rank_check = "10";
include "../global.inc.php";

$set_username = strtolower(ereg_replace(" ", "", $set_username));

mysql_query("UPDATE members2 SET rank=$set_rank WHERE username = '$set_username' AND game = '$game'");
$findUser = fetch("SELECT id FROM members2 WHERE username = '$set_username' AND game = '$game'");

if ($set_rank == 0)
{
	mysql_query("DELETE FROM forum_replies2 WHERE author = '$findUser[id]' AND game = '$game'");
	mysql_query("DELETE FROM forum_subjects2 WHERE author = '$findUser[id]' AND game = '$game'");
}

$rank = array("Suspended", "Mute", "Under 13", "Police", "Moderator", "Staff", "Admin");

record("Changed Status", "$username changed $set_username's status to $rank[$set_rank]", $timestamp, $game, $userid);

header("Location: admin_set_status.php?game=$game&error=You+have+changed+their+rank+successfully.");

?>

This is the admin set status page!

I havent seen anything obvious although the set array only has the ranks it initially was set up with. since then I have addeda lot more. .... i.e. the suspended, mute, under 13, user,etc etc

Justin

why dont you just use and if/else statement and for each permission include a differant include file.

aka. if(permission == 6)
inlclude('permisson6.php);
else
include something else

Ahh, I see.

In the IF statement I have introduced, you must put quotes around the ranks your are checking.

e.g.:

if($rank_check == "6" || $rank_check == "7" || $rank_check == "8"){
    $let_them_pass = true;
}

Remember, quoted values are strings. E.g., "6" != 6 .

This is interesting! Although this would still not allow me to set an individual admin control to only a selection of ranks???

Im trying to set up inidividual access rights for each rank so the police can mute/suspend users and warn them, then the employment office manager wud be able to warn/mute people and also put [people in access etc
Some of these access rights will be shared though so I need a way to say that only ranks, x y and zcan access this page.

Kind Regards
Justin

It should, but I think, after looking more closely at your admin_status.pro.php, that you are testing the wrong variable in the IF statement.

Try this:

if($set_rank == 6 || $set_rank == 7 || $set_rank == 8){
    $let_them_pass = true;
}

This should mean: anyone with a rank of 6 or 7 or 8 will get to see the content.

heya bill, that still locks outeven using the "" :S

This is a nightmare lol

Sorryabout this guys
Justin

Its still locking me out for some reason, What im doing is changing the ==8 to ==10 to allow my to access this page as one of the ranks but it still locks me out.

:s

Justin

OK, well, I'm not sure what else to try without having access to your project. All I can suggest is that you go through all parts of your code and try to understand what each part is logically doing. This may involve reading manuals, and whatnot, but it is worth it. What you are trying to do shouldn't be that difficult, so I have faith that you will figure it out.

I'm busy for the remainder of the day, but I'll continue to watch this thread.

Cheers,

Bill

Thank you for all your help and time! Im going to look through and try to understand it all.

One more doc found was the

<?php

/*

*/

$page_title = "Set Status";
$rank_check = 10;
include "../header.inc.php";

print "$openHTML";

END;

print "$closeHTML";
?>

However,I cant see anything in this! Im going to try and start from the beginning again

Once again Many Thanks
and Merry Christmas

Justin

Heya,

I was still unable to sort this problem out. :O(

Any ideas on how I can set up multi access rank rights to pages in my website??????


Thanks

Justin
