The redirection is simple (take care to use it before output something)
PHP Code:
header"Location: login_form.html" ); 
To use the name and password at same time it is simple too, you can do a select query like :
SELECT name, password FROM the_table WHERE name='username' AND password='pass'

If it returns a row, log is ok

Thanks for the SQL statment. That was lazyness on my part.

as for the header( "Location: login_form.html" ); that returned a message saying that there was an error in my SQL statment at line 1

What i ended up doing was using <META http-equiv="refresh" content="0; url=edit.php?search=<?php echo $row_Recordset1['id']; ?>%20" id="<?php echo $row_Recordset1['id']; ?>"> in the dynamic table.

<META http-equiv="refresh" content="0; url="> did not work unless it was in the d-table.
