If register_globals is disabled then you DO NOT use the session_register(), session_unregister() functions. You set them directly using: $_SESSION['step'] = 2 You remove them using: unset($_SESSION['step']) If register_globals is enabled THEN you use the session_register(), session_unregister() functions. In which case in your examples above, the use of extract($_SESSION) is meaningless, and you need to session_register('step'), then $step = 2. -- Jason Wong -> Gremlins Associates -> www.gremlins.biz Open Source Software Systems Integrators * Web Design & Hosting * Internet & Intranet Applications Development * /* You have taken yourself too seriously. */ -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
