    You mean hyperlinks.
     
     

    You use the GET method and put the variables in the url.
    Eg. something like

    <a href="page.hph?word=grok">click here</a>

    This will pass the variable "word" with the value "grock" to the
    specified url, which if it is PHP code can read it with
    $variable=$_GET["word"];

    For more info on how to use the GET method, read the fine manual.

    Neil - people aren't mad that you're "advertising your problem" in more than
    one place. They're mad about *how* you're doing it. If you cross-post
    (specify all newsgroups in the Newsgroups: line of *one* post) rather than
    multiposting (posting a separate message to each group), then replies will
    show up in all groups.

    Crossposting allows you to advertise your problem to multiple groups while
    only having *one* thread of conversation. People can see answers posted from
    any group in any group, and can build on those answers rather than repeating
    things. When you multipost, each thread is a separate conversation, and
    leads to repetition and wasted time on the part of the posters.

    With that said, I hope I have been clear in the differences between cross-
    and multi-posting, and why cross-posting is favorable. Please, if you want
    to post the same things to multiple groups, cross-post it rather than
    multi-posting it.

    I noticed that Message-ID: <F%oFb.41$blueyonder.co.uk>
    from Neil Trigger contained the following:
     


    The other reason to cross post is that people in many groups may also be
    interested in the answer. If you get the answer in just one, you will
    be happy, but everyone else will be left wondering

    Default PHP text links

    I was wondering if there's a way of getting info back from a database using
    PHP without using forms, but text links instead?

    I think it's similar to the way the likes of yahoo make their search
    engines. The user types something and the engine brings back everything
    matching certain key words. These are links and when the user click them, it
    brings back the whole listing.

    If anyone knows how to do it, I'd very much like to find out.

    Thank you.

    Yes, but did you notice how the question was different?
    I recognise that you visit more than one group, but some people don't. I'm
    sorry you don't agree with my practices, and I really do appreciate your
    help (though I couldn't get your scripting to work) but I really do feel
    that the best way to get my message to the most people is to post in the
    most amount of places.

    It's like advertising the fact that i have a problem.

    Any company would be foolish to only advertise to one customer alone.

    I hope that explains why I posted and hope you can forgive me.

    Oh i see.
    Well the first time I did that I put the newsgroups addresses in the address
    bar and for some reason it didn't work.

    I think I'll have to find out what my browser was doing and how to cross
    post as opposed to multi-posting.
    It was a very clear explanation, thank you.
    Is this what you meant Tim?
