Pass URL From Form To Iframe

 6:43 pm on Oct 10, 2008 (gmt 0)

Hi all. I stink at PHP and you all rock so heres a question.

I want to make a 2 page app.

Page 1: Simple form that you can enter a url into

Page 2: Takes the URL from the form on page 1 and pops it into an iframe in page 2

Im guessing that somehow the URL on page 1 has to be passed into the URL as a variable and sucked into page 2 between the iframe tags.

Can anyone show me how to do this? Thanks so much.

<form action=page2.php method=get>
URL:<input type=text name=url size=50>
<input type=submit value=Load>



echo "<iframe src ='$url' width='100%'></iframe>";


Sorry in advance to all those who would dislike the html code above, since its not a Validation test.
