Hi,

I have a page that has a list of links on it, these links all go to the same 'next' page that has a form on it. What I need is for the value in (for instance) link 3 to be added as the input in the first field in the form that is on the page the user is sent to.

Thanks to anyone for help.

You could alter the next url with an added value, e.g.
next.php?link3
Then $_REQUEST the url from there, make it a variable, and then include the variable in the value of the field.

If you want to make it dynamic however, then you will need to explode the link, and create a variable from there, that will be inserted into the destination url value.

Was just thinking, that if you didn't want to affect the urls, then you could create them as session variables.

Are you trying to do this without modifying the destination pages?
