    Hello,

    Does somebody know how to hide the information that's passed in a Url please?

    So instead of:
    http://www.whatever.com/newthread.ph...read&forumid=4

    the url will state only:
    http://www.whatever.com

    ...and the other vaiables will still be passed, except that they can't be seen by the user.

    Hidden fields I know of already, but these still show the variables and their values when the user 'views source'.

    Putting variables in the form action I know of already, but this doesn't solve the problem for links.

    Thanks, if anybody knows, if it's possible.

    All the best,

    Jason

    well this is what comes to my mind....

    why do you want to hide the url?? is it for security reasons?? if thats the case, you could encrypt the values in the query string and pass these values as usual.The url will still be present but only you know the key to decript it so you you do get a degree of security.

    thanks for your response bcurry.

    This was more out of interest than anything else.

    I know there's other ways of achieving the same thing (esp. $REMOTE_USER , and the encryption as you said is another method.

    I'd still like to know if it's possible however.

    Cheers,

    Jason

    You can also make a frame :-(

    make a frame that is 0 and one that has the whole page!

    the php page wil be loaded into the frame so you'll won't see the url.

    instead you'll see the url of the 0 frame

    it's a method, but i hate frames :-)

    laterz
