I have got a login page and after I log in, it takes me to a page I set in the coding which is great but I want to display some text or have a popup box saying I have successfully logged in, is that possible and if so how do I do it or can someone point me in the right direction please
Assuming you're using sessions for access control, you could set a value (e.g.: $_SESSION['login_success']=true, then on the page in question, check to see if that $_SESSION value is set, and if so, unset it and display whatever text, pop-up, etc. you want in that case.
