Hi fairly new to php, but picking it up quite well.
the question I have, is it possible for a php script which is used to
validate values submitted in a form, to then post these values onto
another script/page or even back to the calling form?
i.e. the application I have in question is a login.htm page with a
The login.htm has a Form which captures login_id and password which are
posted to verify.php
verify.php checks the id and password against the database.
if the check succeeds I use $_SESSION to track the logged in user into
if the check fails, I use $_SESSION["error"] to set an error message
and then jump to login.htm, but I've lost the userid.
The only way I can see of transferring the userid (and some other data)
is by calling header ("Location: login.htm?id=$uid");
and then have some php code in login.htm to $GET['uid'] and pop that
into the user field on the form.
Is there any easy way I can post this data back without using a <FORM>
or at least a form that can be auto-submitted?
Thanks in advance.
