DaleAlright, I don't really know what to call this, so maybe that's why I can't find any tutorials online, but in PHP you know how most sites, atleast professional sites have index.php?id=1 or whatever, with the id, and such. How do I do this? Could someone post code? commented? tutorial? virtually anything is helpful!

Thanks.

WarriorLook up $_GET on the PHP Website.June 05, 2007, 07:14 PM
FrostWraithSince this took me a bit to figure out when I started, I'll give a simple example.
This is if you do index.php?page=X
Code:
<?php
     
    
if (isset($_GET['page'] ) )
    {
        
$page $_GET['page'];
    }
    else
    {
        
$page 0;
    }
     
    switch (
$page )
    {
         
        case 
1:
         
        echo 
"Contents of index.php?page=1";
        break;
         
        case 
2:
         
        echo 
"Contents of index.php?page=2";
        break;
         
        default: 
//OPTIONAL
         
        
echo "Contents of index.php?page=anythingelse";
        break;
    }
?>

rabbitAlmost, you should cast $_GET['page'] to int before you check it.June 05, 2007, 08:03 PM

CrAzYWarrior,

When ever you see Something=Value on the URL, this is simply saying $Something = value;

So if I were to have code that said

Code:
<?
echo("Your name is ".$name);
?>


And you made the URL say, http://yoursite.com/index.php?name=Warrior, you would get a page that says 'Your name is Warrior'.

Hope this helps!

rabbitAHAHAHAHA!!!!

CrAzY, Warrior knows more PHP than you could ever hope to.  He was responding to me, because I said cast it to an int.  And he's right.  I use numbers for all of my page traversing, so I'm used to casting to int everything.
