[FX.php List] Using key other than RECID

Hello again.

Last on the list of important enhancements to include in my first 
solution is to change the key field used to get from page to page.  I 
am currently using recid, which appears on the URL.  Since this is 
generated by FMP and is sequential, it is easy to guess the next 
RECID and view another person's record.

I am using session.fp5 for the logon page and index.php page (copied 
from "Dogwalk"].  User is arriving to logon.php with user name and 
password.  After that, the solution uses recid through the rest of 
the screens: Detail.....Edit....Review...End.

I understand that I can use SessionID, which will be invisible on the URL.

Is this the way to go, or is there a better method?

Here's the URL if you'd like to look:	Test Username and password are shown.

Would be happy to post code.  Thanks!
