Default Chapter 2, pages 68/69 moviesite.php


I am having major problems with the moviesite.php script and it is the version that first introduces functions.

First of all I login via login.php with no problem and I am then directed to movie1.php and there are 3 links - the top one is for movie info and the middle is for top 5 movies and the last top 10 movies.

Each of these links call moviesite.php

If I click on the top link for basic movie info this is displayed ok

However, if I click on either the top 5 or top 10 link I get displayed the message... 'Sorry you do not have permisson to view this page etc etc'

It's as if the if statment to check the value of $_SESSION['authuser'] is proving negative but how can this be as I am already 'logged in' so authuser = 1?

Here is my code below. Some more info..this problem happens across several machines plus different browsers - ie, netscape, opera mozilla firefox so I am wondering if there is a bug in the code? I think there may be a bug in the code as I downloaded the code for this section from this wrox site and the exact same happens with the authors code.

thanks in advance.

My script...

//check to see if user logged in ok
if ($_SESSION['authuser']!=1) {
echo "Sorry but you do not have permission to view this page you twat!";
<TITLE>My Movie Site - <? echo $_REQUEST['favmovie'] ?></TITLE>
<? include "header.php"; ?>
function listmovies_1()
         echo "1. Life of Brian<br>";
         echo "2. Stripes<br>";
         echo "3. Office Space<br>";
         echo "4. The Holy Grail<br>";
         echo "5. Matrix<br>";

function listmovies_2()
         echo "6. Terminator 2<br>";
         echo "7. Star Wars<br>";
         echo "8. close Encounters of the Third Kind<br>";
         echo "9. Sixteen Candles<br>";
         echo "10. Caddyshack<br>";

if (ISSET($_REQUEST['favmovie'])) {
echo "Welcome to our site, ";
echo $_SESSION['username'];
echo "! <br>";
echo "My favourite movie is ";
echo $_REQUEST['favmovie'];
echo "<br>";
echo "My movie rating for this movie is: ";
echo $movierate;
else {
     echo "My top ";
     echo $_REQUEST['movienum'];
     echo " movies are:";
     echo "<br>";

     if ($_REQUEST['movienum'] == 10) listmovies_2();

function listmovies_1()
that won't work.

"<?php" will unless you have turned on short tags. Are you using short tags in your other scripts?

Also the error may be in the referring page. It would help to see the code from all your pages.

As for the code being buggy, it worked for me and several others without issue. Getting from login.php to movie1.php will happen if you type in the correct username and password, even with cookies turned off.
