Hello,

I have little knowledge with PHP and I was assigned to try to fix some of the things that don't work in a website. The website basically deals with two different users, a trader who can post articles and a blogger who can post blogs. When a user registers to become a trader though, he is registered as a blogger. I checked the database and everyone who tried to register as a trader was saved as a user. I think the problem is in the register process method. I attached a copy of the codes. Since my knowledge is very limited, i'm not exactly sure what's wrong. Can you please take a look at it and let me know. I'm open to any thoughts and suggestions.

public function process()
    {
        $date = date('Y-m-d');
        $userid = uniqid();
        $captchaError = '';
        if($this->input->post('Submit'))
        {
//---------------------------------FORM VALIDATION STARTS HERE---------------------------------
            $this->form_validation->set_error_delimiters('', '');
            $this->form_validation->set_rules('fname', 'Full name','required');
            $this->form_validation->set_rules('email', 'Email', 'required|valid_email|is_unique[tbl_user.email]');
            $this->form_validation->set_rules('password', 'password', 'trim|required|min_length[6]|matches[cpassword]');

The website basically deals with two different users, a trader who can post articles and a blogger who can post blogs. When a user registers to become a trader though, he is registered as a blogger. I checked the database and everyone who tried to register as a trader was saved as a user.

Doesn't make sense. You have 2 types of user: 'trader' and 'blogger'. So what's the third type 'user'?
