I think you need to make yourself slightly clearer in the question.

If you are doing what I think you are trying to do, and just pass arguments you can call the site like

http://localhost/newjeans/site.php?id=1

Then on the other site you can do something like

<?php

$id = $_GET['id'];

?>

use $_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'];

eg:

<?

    echo $_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'];

?>

heres a full example of how to pass a variable from one page to the next, it should help you understand how it works better:

file 1 (1.php in example)

<?php
$var = 5;
echo "<a href=\"2.php?variable=$var\">link</a>";
?>

file 2 (2.php in example)

<?php
$newvar = $_GET['variable'];
echo $newvar;
?>

      $parts = split ("=", $_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'];);
       $total = count($parts) - 1;
       $fieldyouwant = $parts[$total];


$fieldyouwant will contain that '1' that you needed.  It will not work if there is more than one field being passed.  Then you will have to do $parts[$total-whatever] as well to get the other variables.  It basically splits it apart between = signs.  I cannot remember if a '\' is needed before the '=' sign.  


hope that helps,
