Hi there,

I was wondering about something: is there another way besides cookies, session variable (which are cookies as well) and database to save a value throughout the scope of the user's surf on the web site? I'm wondering if there could be a use of global variables that would be saved on the server but I don't think it would work.

Also, I wanted to know if session variables are a good use of PHP?

Thanks a lot,

-Jeremiorama

you can pass information using the $_GET and $_POST arrays, with links and/or forms. Or you can store information in like, a text file and open/read it on each page... other than that.. umm.. why? Do you have some sort of limitation imposed upon you, or something?
Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

Hey,

Well I was just wondering about all the possibilities. So using session variables would be alright then, and a better structured way of doing things, right?

Thanks,
