Usually the Browser will ask the user wants to resend the POST variables.

If not, then you could store them in a session, and retrieve them from the session later.

I think sessions are the easiest way to do it.
Or if the values aren't so much you could use cookies, but all this relies on the fact that the user accepts cookies (since even Sessions use cookies if not used through the URI).

Well with Sessions you can transmit the id with --enable-trans-id through GET or POST links. Having that said that would be using the solution to solve your problem without actually coming up with the solution(or something like that).

I think we need more information before we can make any real suggestions regarding the circumstances surrounding the situation.

attempting to use session variable

this is what i want to accomplish

// top of page

session_start();

if ($_SESSION["state"] != "true") {
     $_SESSION["state"] = "false";
     session_register('state');
}

// assign new value if db query successful

$_SESSION["state"] = "true";
session_register('state');

// test if db query not successful

if ($_SESSION["state"] == "true") {
     do stuff
} else {
     do other stuff
}

this is all done on one page

thanks!

You don't have to use session_register if you are using the $_SESSION array.

How about using this:

<?php
  foreach($_POST as $key => $value)
    $_SESSION["posted_".$key] = $value; //the prefix is just to be sure no important variable is overwritten.
?>
