To all,
I just started learning PHP and have created a database using MySQL(I am a Oracle developer). I have also have created a website using HTML & CSS. I then added PHP code to login to the database. I am creating session id. My question is once a user has login to the database how do you allow them to move around to the rest of the website?  In other words the website has a secure areas and unsecured areas. Do I have to check for the session id for the page they go to? if a user navigates away from the secure area do I tell them they are leaving the area and say they will be logged out and they will have to log back in?
Any ideas would be very very helpful.
