    I was wondering if anyone know how to keep hidden values out of the address bar? I've written a little PHP program, and when I submit some form they usually show up in the address bar. Things like username and passwords show up, which is bad. Any suggestions?
    Thanks

    If you are talking about hidden form fields that's not any more secure than passing the data via the URL. However, to answer your question, you need to use <form action=foo method=post> the operative part being POST.
