I'm trying to create a login page that will verify users, create a session, and then redirect them to a specific page according to their user_type in the database. Everything seems to be working accept that it will not verify everything that has an "else if" statement. It will verify the user_type in the if and the user_type with the else, but seems to skip over the else if's. I need it to check else if's as well. I'll supply my code. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Code:
/* Login verifies username and password, creates session with username, 
 * and directs user to correct page via their usertype. */
