I have a function that i call at the beginning of each page (well, those
that require user auth).


this checks for a positive integer value in a session variable called


is that isn't a positive integer, i redirect to the login page.

the login is split into two script, prompt and process.  prompt is a form
which  POSTs data to the process script which in turn verifys the
username/password and if valid, assigns $_SESSION['intUserID'] the value of
the users user ID.

all looks fine to me.


p.s. is it just me or is the reply-to on this list a little odd?
