    I have a forum I'm implementing. I can register and post while registered but I cannot login when logged out. It continues to not login.

    That username-password combination does not appear to match our records. Please try again.

    The username and pass are correct when I try to relog in. Here is my codes login and codes.
    // this function is called to set up each of the pages in the website.
    // it shows the site's logo, and gives as the page title whatever it's passed
    // as its first argument .. the other argument it uses as the header text of the
    // page. there is also a javascript function included in the title; this is used as
    // a confirm on the post.php and main.php pages, for deleting posts and threads,
    // respectively. an internal style sheet is set up to ensure stylistic coherence.
    function setup_page ($title, $headtext) {
    	echo "<HTML>
    		<script LANGUAGE=Javascript TYPE='TEXT/Javascript'>

    <FORM METHOD=POST ACTION="login.php">
     Your username:
     Your password:
    <A HREF="enter.php">Click here to return to the site entrance.</A>

    try using function called md5() instead of PASSWORD;

    for eg:$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM users WHERE name = '".$user."'
    2 AND password = md5('".$pass."')");
    i'm using the same turorial as yours, and believe me i had the same problem! hop it helps!
