Passing static variables Meat Curtian msg:3554768 5:22 pm on Jan 22, 2008 (gmt 0) Hi All, I want to pass a static variable from an URL to a web page.
or do I use mywebsite.com?sitevar=bigboy
Do I need to define "sitevar" in my html? Or do I?
So how do I take the URL variable "sitevar" in this case "bigboy" and pass it along to the php routine that needs this variable?

you can do it with hundred of methods but if you want to use Global Arrays, $_GET, $_POST etc then use query string style with quetion mark.
Please study PHP properly because your question shows you are jumping more than one steps :)

Oh Welcome to WebmasterWorld by the way Meat Curtian msg:3554841 6:29 pm on Jan 22, 2008 (gmt 0)
Hi Phparion, Thanks for your input.
So if I use the following URL in my browser, mywebsite.com?sitevar=bigboy
How do I pick up the variable “sitevar” so that I can pass it to my php routine?
I realize that within the php routine, I use the $_Get(‘input”) to pass the variable, but my confusion is passing the variable to the website, and then on to the php rouine.

The variable is passed in the GET request, which PHP will place into the $_GET superglobal array for you (if your configuration is set up to do so -- which, in most every case it will indeed be setup this way). Have a look at this sample code which may explain things a bit more visually ... [ ...] webmasterworld.com
