I'm a rank amatuer so be gentle...

 

I have a page I've created in Dreamwever MX. This page displays the entries in a mySQL table with a repeat region and it works fine. Now I want to create a link next to each entry where a user can email the creator of that record. I created a link named 'contact this user' within the repeating table to a form for composing a message.

 

Now I'm fumbling...

 

The URL I created appends '?someusername=&someusername%40gmail.com=' to that end of the URL to the contact form.

 

When the user reaches that form I now need the first portion of the string (username to be contacted) to be placed on the form. I also need to post method to be to send email to the second portion of the string (an email address). Is this possible?

 

Thanks for your time.

use $_GET variables...

 

let's see if I understand... you have a user named joeBob. his email is joeBob@gmail.com, and you want someone to be able to send him an email.

 

this is the part I (possibly) am confused about.

the appended part would look like ?joeBob=&joeBob%40gmail.com ???

 

if that is the case, I would suggest you have it append

?user=joeBob&email=joeBob%40gmail.com

 

and then get the values by using $_GET['user'] (returns joeBob) and $_GET['email'] (returns joeBob%40gmail.com)
