    I am looking for an easy set of PHP scripts to allow users to Register, Login/Authenticate and store a few variables. Has anybody run across this?

    I've not seen pre-packaged ones, but I'm sure they must exist... did you check hotscripts.com?

    It's pretty easy to do though... I end up coding my own every time I need it because it's easier to do than to look for existing ones.

    You don't use email verification though do you?

    No, but I've done email verification systems as well (for mailing list subscription), and that's not terribly difficult either...

    I followed this tutorial and with no knowledge beforehand managed to get it working.

    To be honest though, I can't remember if it includes email email verification. Upon registering I think it just sends an email with the random password to the user.

    Thinkbling,

    It depends on how you want to **manage** those users. Theres a number of user management models out there. The registration and login are just peripheral to proper user and session management, which is where most folk come unstuck at code level.

    It's also where assumptions land hackers @ root, and clients with lawyers.

    Start by looking at some of the more popular CMS' and go from there. Also, consider your code/server. Each have their plusses. :)

    If you are familiar with the registration and profile portions of the phpBB, I am looking for something like that but easily customizable to include custom fields and such.
