try using the $_SESSION superglobal var (google is your friend if its 
new to you.)

no need to register (still need to do session_start() though) just

$_SESSION['MyValue'] = array(
        'name'  => $username,
        'level' => $account_level

...or something like that. (also works for objects - which is only gets

really cool in php5 - be aware that classes for objects stored in your

session should be loaded BEFORE you start the session.)
