Pretty basic, but for some reason im stuck. I cant get sessions to run.. I dont think. Or maybe I have a problem getting the set information.

Look at this..


the EXACT code for that is this.

$username = $_SESSION['username'];
Echo $username;
} Else {
session_register("username", JohnDoe);
Echo 'session started! <a href="?">Click here to go home and view the name your session was started with</a>';
} Else {
Echo '<a href="?do=yes">click here to start session</a>';

I was told that is the correct code, and its the code I pretty much cut and pasted from the other music site I had a while back..

any ideas? Does it work for you guys?

PHP: session_register - Manual

If you want your script to work regardless of register_globals, you need to instead use the $_SESSION array as $_SESSION entries are automatically registered. If your script uses session_register(), it will not work in environments where the PHP directive register_globals is disabled.
