I am trying to store the name $addusername to my database so that everytime someone signs-up then get a welcome message with their username is it.
For example my test string is:
Hi $addusername , Welcome to my page. I hope you find what you are looking for.
$addusername is always different because it uses the username of the person who just signed up. However, when I am trying to get the string above from by database it doesn't translate $addusername to the actual username. It uses the EXACT thing written above. When I try echoing the $addusername variable right after I call the string, it shows the username just fine.
Do I have to do something special when I take a variable name out of a database, or can I even do this?
