passing a variable from page to another page

25 New Member
Hi there, I would like to ask a question about how to pass a variable from page to page. For example, I have my first page for login and used a session with cookie and after submitting successfully and redirect my page to another page I want show statement like Hello Smith or Welcome Smith, and it doesn't work properly. Anyone knows the soulution would be appreciated. Thanks

  1. <?php
  2. if (loggedin())
  3.     {
  4.     header("Location: redirectpage.php");
  5.     exit();
  6.     }
  7. if ($_POST["login"])
  8. {
  9.     global $username;
  10.     $username = $_POST['username'];
  11.     $password = $_POST['password'];
  12.     $rememberme = $_POST['rememberme'];
  15.     if($username&&$password)
  16.     {
  18.     $login = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM usersystem where username='$username'");
  19.     while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($login))
  20.     {
  21.         $db_password = $row['password'];
  22.         if($password==$db_password)
  24.     else
  25.         setcookie("username", $username, time()+7200);
  26.         else if ($rememberme=="")
  27.         $_SESSION['logged_in']== $username;
  28.         $_SESSION['username'] =$_POST['username'];
  30. //userarea.php
  31.         header("Location: redirectpage.php");
  32.         exit();
  34.         }
  36.     }
  38.     }
  39.     else
  40.     die("Please enter a username and password");
  42. }
  43. ?>
This is the code for the second page that I want the name of the user to show up.

  1. <?php
  2. session_start();
  4. $username = $_SESSION['username'];
  6. echo $_SESSION['username'];
  10. echo "Hello ". $username ;
  11. ?>
So what's wrong with my code. Thanks again

Hmmm, didn't seem to work. I have set session.use_cookies = 1 and session.use_trans_sid = 1 in my php.ini file. Index.php contains: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- <?php ini_set("session.use_cookies", "off"); ini_set("session.use_trans_sid", "on"); session_start(); $_SESSION = ""; $_SESSION = ""; echo "<form method='POST' action='login.php'>

Does anyone have experience with passing variables from an ASP page to a JSP page. The way it currently works in passing the SSN in the URL. This cannot be good. I thought that storing a unique session ID in a cookie and referencing the SSN from the Session ID would be the correct way to do this. But since we have two separate servers, IIS and Websphere, how do we coordinate the session ID?

Hello, I know three ways to pass variables form one page to another. The first one is to declare and set session variable. In this case if one goes to another page (by clicking on hyperlink or pressing a button) value of a session variable will be automatically seen on the new page. The second way is to set hidden variables in the form and go to new page by execution of this form (press a button or enter), and the last way, which I...

When you are passing a value to another page, and will need access to it throughout the page and on any postbacks, what is the best way to store it? By making it a variable accessible to the whole page, or by putting it in the ViewState? Thanks, Mike

I have a need to use a single version of a Visitor Response Feedback Form on numerous HTML documents. Rather than have numerous versions of this, one on each HTML document, it makes more sense to have ONE FORM and use it from each HTML document that needs it.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
