CodeIgniter from Scratch Day 7: Pagination

In today's hour long video tutorial, we'll be doing a lot! We'll implement a login and signup form that will allow us to lock down certain sections of our fictional site. As you'll find, working with sessions in CodeIgniter is a cinch!

Day 6: Sessions

Login Form
Signup Form

P.S. The Logout Button

I forgot to add the "logout" button during the screencast. There was so much to cover, that I was bound to forget something! Luckily, it's really easy. Simply add a link, to the "members" area, which links to the login class, and a "logout" method (login/logout). Then, all we must do is destroy the user's session, and redirect them back to the login form. Download the source code if confused.

Hope you Enjoy it!

Keep in mind that we're just scratching the surface, in terms of flexibility and security. We can - and very well may - take things much further. But this should get you started!
