Passing variable thru redirects
but not in the url

Can you pass variables using a redirect without a form, without a session and without the variable being in the url?

Say you link to my site using a url like
example.com?id=123
then while on my site you click on a link but that link goes thru a GeoIP script that see you're from a blocked country and redirects you to
example.com/blocked/country.php
then this page will check to see if an id is set and base further actions on if it's set or not.

Problem is, on example.com/blocked/country.php it can't get the id variable unless it's in the url.

Is that right? Or is there another way I'm not thinking of?

Since the referring url still has the id code I want then I just did it like this and it works.


$ref = $_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER'];
$string = strstr($ref,"id=");
$ref = str_replace("id=","",$string);
echo $ref;

and it returns just the id number like I want. I'm not sure if it's the best way to do it but it works.

I think php sessions is what you're looking for.
