hi all

i'm having some troubles with my login/logout management.

the problem is, when user clicks back button and gets back to the login page, the session va username still holds the value .

what i need, is to completly understand how can i unset the session var in all the occasions user leaves the page he signed in for??

plesae some guidness, all the php session tutorials sent to me here, are not that helpfull.

I think this is more of a problem with how browsers cache the pages, vs. session. When the user hits back in the browser, it just loads the page from the cache, without refreshing it. There's are potentially multiple solutions, from using javascript to handle body onload and calling a web service to see if session is still active, or telling the browser to not cache the page.

Use some code like
<?php if(!isset($_SESSION['live'])){

it will help you
