    display username after logging in

    Hi

    I really need some help with PHP

    I am trying code something like the following

    After a user logs in, I want a page to display his username, how do I do that

    On the page where I want to display the username, I have got the following PHP coding so far

    PHP Code:
    <?php
    //set vars
    $user $_POST['user'];
    $pass md5($_POST['pass']);

    if (
    $user&&$pass
    {
    //connect to db
    $connect mysql_connect("$hostname","$username","$password") or die("not connecting");
    mysql_select_db("databasename") or die("no db :'(");
    $query mysql_query("SELECT * FROM $tablename WHERE username='$user'");
    ?>
    My login php page coding is below

    PHP Code:
    <?php
    //set vars
    $user $_POST['user'];
    $pass md5($_POST['pass']);

    if (
    $user&&$pass
    {
    //connect to db
    $connect mysql_connect("$hostname","$username","$password") or die("not connecting");
    mysql_select_db("databasename") or die("no db :'(");
    $query mysql_query("SELECT * FROM $tablename WHERE username='$user'");

    $numrows mysql_num_rows($query);


    if (
    $numrows!=0)
    {
    //while loop
      
    while ($row mysql_fetch_assoc($query))
      {
        
    $dbusername $row['username'];
        
    $dbpassword $row['password'];
      }
      else
          die(
    "incorrect username/password!");
    }
    else
      echo 
    "user does not exist!";

    else
        die(
    "please enter a username and password!");
    ?>
    <br>
    <div id="login">
    Enter username and password below to login
    </div>
    <form id='login' action='checklogin.php' method='post' accept-charset='UTF-8'>
    <fieldset>
    <legend></legend>
    <input type='hidden' name='submitted' id='submitted' value='1'/>

    </div>
    <form method="post" action="forgotpassword.php">

    <input type="submit" value="Submit" class="submit-button"/>
    </form>

    PHP Code:
    <?php
    //=============Configuring Server and Database=======
    $host        =    'hostname';
    $user        =    'username';
    $password    =    'password';
    //=============Data Base Information=================
    $database    =    'databasename';
     
    $conn        =    mysql_connect($host,$user,$password) or die('Server Information is not Correct'); //Establish Connection with Server
    mysql_select_db($database,$conn) or die('Database Information is not correct');
     
    //===============End Server Configuration============
     
    //=============Starting Registration Script==========
     
    $email    =    $_POST['email'];

    $username    =    $_POST['txtUser'];
     
    $password    =    $_POST['txtPassword'];
     
    //=============To Encrypt Password===================
    $password    =    md5($salt.$password);
    //============New Variable of Password is Now with an Encrypted Value========
     
    if(isset($_POST['btnRegister'])) //===When I will Set the Button to 1 or Press Button to register
    {
    $query    =    "insert into users(email,username,password)values('$email','$username','$password')";
    $res    =    mysql_query($query);
    header('location:registersuccess.html');
    }
     
    ?>

    <?php
    $to 
    "$email";
    $subject "Registration Details";
    $message "Email: $email \n Username: $username \n Password: $password";
    $from "myemailaddress";
    $headers "From: $from";
    mail($to,$subject,$message,$headers);
    echo 
    "Mail Sent.";
    ?>
    Thank you in advance

    Kind regards

    Dasher is correct,

    Or you may want to assign $dbusername to a session:
    session_start();
    $_SESSION['dbusername'] = $dbusername;

    Then echo $_SESSION['dbusername'] in the second page where you want the username to be displayed.

    Secondly, i don't think the variable $tablename has been defined.
