I want to insert data to a column based on url so that one insert page can enter dataspecified in url

Users are creating various posts and I want to insert the post_type by including the various post_types in the url.
Example: Golf. Bowling, Swimming

This is on a mySQLi page

Use the post type from the url to populate a hidden form element and then use the hidden form element to insert it into the database.

Thank you,

Would the url look like this mysite.com/add-record.php?post_type=Golf Event ?

Is the hidden field
<?php echo($WADAbettybracer->getColumnVal("post_type")); ?>

That is a reference to a recordset column. To populate a hidden field you would use:

<input type="hidden" name="post_type" value="<?php echo($_GET["post_type"); ?>">
