I wonder if you can help with this please:
I want to get a value in HTML and assign it to PHP variable when user clicks on a link. The link value is not the value I want to pass to the php variable.

for example:
<a href="something.html"><some way to declare number = 1 in html>
<a href="something.html"><some way to declare number = 2 in html>

if user clicks on the first link phpVar will equal 1....etc.
phpVar = number;

Thank you in advance,

The only to pass a variable to PHP with a link is by the url like so:
<a href="something.php?var=1">Send Var1</a>
<a href="something.php?var=2">Send Var2</a>
