so here's my code


you can see on line 50, from a cookie, a string is being put into the variable $username

also on line 96 i start a php form. What I would like to do is take $username, and put it into a hidden field, which i should be able to make hidden with
<input type=hidden

but how can i insert $username into this field. i would use name=username so i can grab it from backend.php
could i do 'value=$username'?

thanks in advanced for anyone who can help.

You would do something like:
<input type="hidden" name="username" value="<?php echo $username ?>">
