    POST problems

    Hi everyone

    On my website we aren't using buttons/forms, we are using standard links instead. My question to you is whether anyone knows how to pass on a variable using a standard <a href> link. Can you do something like this:....?
    <a href="http://www.mywebsite.com/good.html?post $variable = "james"
    Does anyone know how to do that?

    Thanks

    james

    Note that it will be sent via the GET method, not the POST method, if you send it as part of the URL.

    Thanks for your help guys, I managed to work it out last night. It was just a matter of knowing what to put in the address; i.e: www.mysite.com/james.php?office=london

    thanks :-)
