I am running into a problem that I can't figure out the solution to.  So
I'm hoping that someone can give me some pointers here.  I have two files
(see below):  verify.php and edit.php
  The job of verify.php is basically to verify that a user is in the
database before allowing him/her to edit the information.  The information
retrieved is saved to arrary varaiable $row.  I do a session_register() to
$row and that information should be passed to subsequent pages that has
session_start(), right?  However, when I tried to print out the information
again in edit.php, it doesn't seem to register it in.  At first I thought it
was the array problem, so I put the array variable $dummy to test it out and
that can be reigstered and retrieved correctly.  What am I doing wrong???
Also, how do I redirect to a page automatically once the user is verfied
(right now I have to ask the user to click on a link to redirect).

Thanks in advance,
