I have a query string coming over as

when I put this into a variable to use I get the following:

$myVar = $_GET['urlstr'];
echo $myVar;
(echos the following: user=JESSE%20REYES)

I need to utilize the name JESSE REYES
how do I capture this value in another php variable???
something like so?

$user = ($myVar($_GET['user']));

So in essence I am trying to get a value from a url string inside a url string?


Thanks for your help

A link:
echo "<a href=\"send.php?user=" . urlencode("JESSE YES") . "\">My Link</a>";

$strMyVar = urldecode($_GET["user"]);
echo $strMyVar;

If I understood your question properly, that should be your solution.

actually i think he means the opposite:

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 :)

URL String is malformed but is this....

(Not this....

*same question still applies...
