Hello, I’m new to codeigniter and php in general so I’ve got a question.

I’m trying to save some userdata to the session just like this:

$data = array(
'username' => $this->input->post('username'),
'is_logged_in' => true,
'firstname' => $first_name,
'lastname' => $last_name,
'admin' => $admin,
'id' => $id

username gets saved ok and I can echo it out just like this in some other view:

echo $this->session->userdata('username'); 

but when I try to echo out firstname, lastname, admin or id I get this error:

A PHP Error was encountered

Severity: 4096

Message: Object of class __PHP_Incomplete_Class could not be converted to string

is it maybe the problem how I get those variables from database? firstname, lastname, admin and id are all located in my database, and I get it just like this:

$first_name $this->db->query('SELECT firstname FROM users WHERE username = ?'$this->input->post('username'));
$last_name $this->db->query('SELECT lastname FROM users WHERE username = ?'$this->input->post('username'));
$admin $this->db->query('SELECT admin FROM users WHERE username = ?'$this->input->post('username'));
$id $this->db->query('SELECT id FROM users WHERE username = ?'$this->input->post('username'));
