Is there some way to make send a GET or POST variable like a session variable, without using a field.
Something like this:
$_GET['data'] = "hello";
echo "<a href = "page2.php">page 2</a>";
Would produce:
Usually i have to use a hidden field, which can get very tedious.

Do you mean passing variables via the get method in a hyperlink?

If so:

echo '<a href="page2.php?var=' . $val . '">';

On page2.php:

$_GET['var'] would contain the value of $val.

Please, try the RTFM solution before asking for help:

For parameters on the URL, you can just create the URL with those parameters, which then are recieved in the $_GET array:
<?php echo '<a href="page.php?data=hello">Page 2</a>'; ?>

use sessions instead. That way as long as the browser is open the variable can be used.
