Hi Experts,

pg1.php sent a form to pg2.php as $_POST['return'], pg2.php extracted the array data within $_POST['return'] and used the data.

Now I need to send that same array to pg3.php and extract the data from the array.

The array contains nothing but a list of id numbers.

Data must be parsed when they click a Send Email Link.

Please Help!

Thanks in advance

Add it to a session in pg2.php which can be read in pg3.php

<?php // pg2.php
session_start();
$_SESSION['Previous_POST'] = $_POST;

// continue with ph2.php
?>

<?php // pg3.php
session_start();

// NOTE: This will overwrite any $_POST supplied.
$_POST = $_SESSION['Previous_POST'];

// Alternatively, leave $_POST alone and just use $_SESSION['Previous_POST'] as an array.

// Continue with pg3.php
?>

If pg2.php contains a form which also uses POST, then you could ...

<?php
$s_POST = serialize($_POST);

$s_hidden_post = '<input type="hidden" name="Previous_POST" value="' . $s_POST . '">';

// Now use $s_hidden_post in the form somewhere.

echo <<< END_HTML
<form method="POST" action="./pg3.php">
$s_hidden_post
<input type="text" name="something">
<input type="submit">
</form>
END_HTML;
?>
