I want to pass the value if a variable to another page by attaching it to the end of the href.

something like this:
<a href "nextPage.php?myValue='My Value'">Next Page</a>

I then want to grab it on the next page using like:

$msg = $_GET[myValue]

Then I want to print this value to the screen like:
echo $msg;

I can't seem to get it to work but I think it's just a small syntax problem. Can anyone give me a snippet example of how I would go about this please or point me in the right direction?

Thank you.

change $msg = $_GET[myValue] to $msg = $_GET['myValue'].  it should work this way. 

also, verify that the $_GET array is even seeing the variable passed.  use this function on the nextpage.php to see what's in the $_GET array:

echo "<pre>";
echo "</pre>";

If your initial value is in PHP, you'll need to use something like:

<a href "nextPage.php?myValue=<?php echo urlencode($somevariable); ?>">Next Page</a>
