Passing a variable

Thread began 8/16/2021 11:07 am by birdscreen398247 | Last modified 8/16/2021 12:04 pm by birdscreen398247 | 21 views | 1 replies


Passing a variable

One Page 1, I have a FORM SELECT box (ListType) based on a Mysqli query that goes to another page when selected.

The page to go to (page 2) is determined by a Script function.

I am trying to send a variable from another SELECT box (BirderName) on Page 1 to Page 2 to display on Page 2 and for use in a query.

But it is not being picked up by Page 2.

What am I doing wrong?

Page 1 is birdlists_search_onebirder.php
Page 2 is BL_Life_PA_OneBirder.php

Also on Page 1, the SELECT box for BirderName, also based on a sqli query, displays the last record in the query instead of the first, and the user has to scroll UP to make a selection. All of my other SELECT boxes work fine, it is just this one that is messed up somehow.
