Experts,

I am currently using the $_GET method to extract a variable from a url.  The url looks as follows;

http://www.something.com/process.php?var=1

I can take out the variable 1, however I would like to implement the following to pull out a user id;

http://www.something.com/process.php?var=1&id=username

How can this be achieved?

$var = $_GET['var'];
$username = $_GET['userame'];


Or am I missing somethign here? You can specify as many GET varibles as you want and reference them by their index in $_GET

Yes rhickmarshall, a minor oversight: it's $_GET['id'], 'username'.

Look at your URL:
   ?var=1&id=username
That reads: "var" is "1", and "id" is "username".

Maybe:
   $var = $_GET['var'];
   $username = $_GET['id'];
