Here's what I found from about.com :

http://javascript.about.com/library/blqs.htm

You might want to read that for some more information.

The script is :

<a href="test2.html?first=GREEN&second=12345678">Click Here</a>

Use this to point to your second page from your first. Change test2.html to your site address and change GREEN and 12345678 to what ever information you want to carry on.

To get the value into your second page use this script :

<html>
<head>
<script>

var qsParm = new Array();
function qs() {
var query = window.location.search.substring(1);
var parms = query.split('&');
for (var i=0; i<parms.length; i++) {
var pos = parms[i].indexOf('=');
if (pos > 0) {
var key = parms[i].substring(0,pos);
var val = parms[i].substring(pos+1);
qsParm[key] = val;
}
}
}

//List your fields here so they have default values.
qsParm['first'] = null;
qsParm['second'] = null;
qs();

</script>
</head>
<body>

You have entered

<script>

//This will add it to your webpage.
//The "If" checks to make sure they are not empty.

if (qsParm['first'] && qsParm['second'])
document.write(' : ' + qsParm['first'] + ' and ' + qsParm['second']);

</script>

</body>
</html>

Add this to your <HEAD>


var qsParm = new Array();
function qs() {
var query = window.location.search.substring(1);
var parms = query.split('&');
for (var i=0; i<parms.length; i++) {
var pos = parms[i].indexOf('=');
if (pos > 0) {
var key = parms[i].substring(0,pos);
var val = parms[i].substring(pos+1);
qsParm[key] = val;
}
}
}

You can also give your fields default values if you want, add this you your <HEAD> as well :

//List your fields here so they have default values.
qsParm['first'] = null;
qsParm['second'] = null;
qs();

Now to retrieve the information, use this script in your <BODY> tag :

<script>

if (qsParm['first'] && qsParm['second'])
document.write( qsParm['first'] + ' and ' + qsParm['second']);

</script>

Or just use document.write( qsParm['first']); and document.write( qsParm['second']); in a <SCRIPT> tag to get the values by themselves.

Like I said, it's from the "About.com" page here : http://javascript.about.com/library/blqs.htm

Any questions let me know :-)
