Basically I'm trying this...

                  if ($auth == "yes" && $access == "master" || $access == "member")

and later I'm going to use...

                  if ($auth == "yes" && $access == "master" || $access == "member" || $access == "admin" || $access = ")

Is this alright? I'm testing it and it seems ok but thought I'd run it by someone.

cheers

Be sure you understand the logic order of operations. If you don't or want to be more specific, I would suggest using parentheses to separate the parsing of each group of logic statements.

For example:  if ($auth == "yes" && ($access == "master" || $access == "member" || $access == "admin" || $access = "))

Yes, you can use || or "OR" for a logical comparison.

I maybe was not clear the | | I know about and I used or recently without thinking realising it works

what I was trying to ask is if there is an alternative because I didnt think the logic was sound as you say JonMarkGo  it should be...

if ($auth == "yes" && ($access == "master" || $access == "member" || $access == "admin" || $access = "))

I fail to keep in mind what brackets can do in coding but thats my answer so cheers all
