This scripts will require some knowledge of PHP and MySQL.  

Requirements:
- Good knowledge of PHP and MySQL
- PHP and MySQL
- Mail configuration for PHP "mail" function, for email notification to work
- This was tested with PHP 5.1.2, mySQL 5.0.18, Firefox2, and IE7

How to install:
1. Unzip VNSBsquares_v40.zip script to your local computer. 
2. Change data in config.inc.php to reflect your mySQL data and rename it to config.php
3. Create a database in your MySQL as in config.php
4. Import superbowl.sql to your newly created MySQL database
5. Make changes to VNSB_settings as needed.
6. Upload all files to your web server.


Usage:

2. Click on any "AVAILABLE" squares to make the selection.  Click "Submit" when all squares are selected.
3. Emails will be send to the Admin and the user when selection is made.


Administrator:
1. Use "www.yourdomain.com/superbowl/admin.php" to approve/confirm each selected square.

===================== CHANGES FROM 2.0 to 3.0 =================================

Bugs fixed:
1. In generals, it's much more user/admin friendly.  Clean up a lot of coding styles.
2. The square will be locked when the first person select it.  This will eliminate the problem 
   with two persons register for the same square at the approximate same time.
3. Selected squares cannot be override by some sneaky person by direct access to the square
   via the URL.  (Don't worry if you don't know what this mean).   
4. Admin only required to login once instead of verifying admin email and password each confirmation.
5. Random number selection is now require login.

===================== CHANGES FROM 3.0 to 4.0 =================================
1.  Move superbowl logo to the database for easy change each year
2.  User will be able to make multiple picks before enter information
3.  Removed Admin link from user pages

===================== CHANGES FROM 3.0 to 4.0 =================================
1.  Admin above to confirm all squares from the same users at once.
2.  Improve email sending header
3.  Improve session header
