I'm having a bit of trouble with this one, as basic as it may be. I have a simple form with name, email, comments, etc. that outputs itself to one php page, but I want to have a link that sends it to a second page, for example:
<label for="name">Name:</label><input type="text" name="name" size="20" />
Goes to a second page (second.php) with this code and prints it just fine:
print "<div>Thank you, $name.</p></div>";
But if I try to send $name to a third page (third.php) using similar code it shows up like this:
Thank you, $name.
With the actual variable and not what was stored in $name.
I feel like I'm missing one tiny little thing but I'm not sure what it is. I used this:
$name = $_POST['name'];
To bring it to second.php and this to bring it to third.php:
print 'Click <a href="third.php? name=' . $name . '">here</a> to proceed.';
Just to see if it would get the same information from second.php, but I don't think it works that way. Is there something else I should be doing on the third page? I have a feeling it's something incredibly insignificant but as I'm learning, I just can't quite get a grasp on it.
