puting echo into a variable

learning php :)
this is probably really easy to do but am stuck and running out of coffee
i currently have this block of code :

if ($name==$dbusername&&$password==$dbpassword)
      {
            
      
      $_SESSION['UserName']=$name;
      if ($_SESSION['UserName'])
echo "Welcome to the scapp gaming network, ".$_SESSION['UserName'];
      
      
      }
      else
      echo "password incorrect!";
}


i would like to position my echos on the page. it currently outputs the echo to the top of the page
and moves the navigation down
how can i echo this where i want it?
thx

You just put this into the place where you want:
<?php
 if ($_SESSION['UserName'])
echo "Welcome to the scapp gaming network, ".$_SESSION['UserName'];
?>

And   if ($_SESSION['UserName']) - this should be
 if (!empty($_SESSION['UserName'])) - you are checking if the SESSION array has the UserName variable set.
