Can someone direct me to a good PHP login / user registration tutorial? I know i get many results if i simply Google it but i'm looking for something that maybe someone has used and found to be useful and reliable.

The main trouble i'm having is actually maintaining a session site-wide, rather than just the one page. I also haven't yet approached the concept of a session timeout.

Any help / advice / links would be appreciated.

EDIT: More than just code, i'm looking for something that will step me through the process so that i can understand it rather than just pasting blocks of code.

Thanks. I know Lynda offer a free trial - would you be able to direct me to a suitable tutorial that deals with user logins and registrations; there's dozens of different PHP & MySQL videos.

An excellent start is the following stackoverflow article - http://stackoverflow.com/questions/549/the-definitive-guide-to-forms-based-website-authentication

It is not PHP specific, but everything there applies to PHP.

I might make a video series of coding registration and login from scratch soon.
