Passing entire URL as a Variable CliffR msg:3015518 7:46 am on Jul 20, 2006 (gmt 0) I'm having trouble searching for this because I keep getting search results that have to do with passing variables through a URL. I have no problem doing that. I need to pass an entire URL to a PHP script like:
The problem I'm having is when someothersite.com has a long query string and some of the variables get truncated. My php knowledge is limited so I'm using
$url = $_GET['newsite'];
to grab the URL, but it doesn't work when the new URL has multiple variables. How do I keep the entire URL intact as it's passed to my script?

could you not replace all the ampersands in the variable newsite just before you send it and then convert i back after that? something like.
$newsite = [
...] someothersite.com $newsite = str_replace("&", "[MyAmp]", $newsite); [ ...] mysite.com
then on the page that receives just reverse it..
$newsite = $_GET["newsite"]; $newsite = str_replace("[MyAmp]", "&", $newsite); Gibisan msg:3015559 8:36 am on Jul 20, 2006 (gmt 0)
You could also use urlencode()
$newsite = urlencode("http://www.someothersite.com/page.php?var1=1&var2=2");
[ ...] mysite.com
$newsite = $_GET["newsite"]; $newsite will be "http://www.someothersite.com/page.php?var1=1&var2=2" - no need to change.
