Add code to the top of each PHP page to require user authentication before granting access to the page.
- [Instructor] In the previous movie…we learned how to authenticate a user,…that is how they can login…with their user name and their password.…However, none of the pages that we have…require that authorization right now.…They all just let anyone view them who wants to.…What we need to do is add some code…that will check to see whether the user is…currently authenticated before…it lets them have the page…to require that they have the authorization.…To do this, I'm going to add a couple more functions…to our auth_functions.php that we added in the last movie.…
This code is included in the exercise files…if you want to get it from there.…I'm going to paste them in.…The first function is, is logged in,…and is logged in is just going to check and see…is the current user logged in?…The way it does that is it looks for that hand stamp,…that ID that we put into the session.…It checks to see if that value is set.…If it exists then we know the user is logged in.…It's in their session.…If not, then they're not logged in.…
