  1. I am trying to conditionally show/hide HTML elements based what type of user is logged in. I’m not too familiar with how Caspio sessions are handled and how they relate to my HTML pages. I also have very little Javascript experience. There should be three levels of access, Admin, Manager, and User. I currently have an authentication table that has three users and three yes/no fields (admin/manager/user), each user is a different type. My first idea was to use cookie data. On successfully logging into my authentication form it would make a cookie for user type which would have a value of admin, manager, or user. Then I could use that cookie to add the display:none style to certain elements that I don’t want lower access users viewing. My problem is that I’m not sure how to do that with Javascript, or if that is the best practice. I currently have an HTML Datapage linked to my Authentication. On that page is this code: var type_admin = '[@authfield:admin]'; var type_manager = '[@authfield:manager'; var type_user = '[@authfield:user]'; if (type_admin == "Yes") { document.cookie="type=admin"; } else if (type_manager == “Yesâ€) { document.cookie="type=manager"; } else if (type_user == “Yesâ€) { document.cookie="type=user"; } Then I assume I would just reference the cookie on my HTML pages somewhat like this: <div class="adminContent"> Show this content if the user is Admin </div> <div class=â€managerContentâ€> Show this content if the user id Manager </div> <div class=â€userContentâ€> Otherwise show this content </div> Here are the HTML/PHP files I’m working with: http://domco.us/vita/test/ And here is the login page that’s just an embedded Datapage: http://domco.us/vita/page_login.php In the end I would like to be able to filter things like navigation buttons or div blocks. It would be great to have an Admin Tools link in the navigation that only Admins/Managers could see. I’m not sure the specifics of getting something like this to work. Also I don’t know how to keep that @authfield data throughout different HTML pages (not linked to Caspio) and I’m just assuming Cookies are the best option. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
