Passing on URL variables in PHP

On this page: http://samsonhairrestoration.com/scratch/zoomify/image_gallery/5.php?name=craig_e&shoot=0&file=1&zm=28 

I have a bunch of URL variables. I would like to click on the Full Screen link on the top and

go to the fullsize version of the image on this page: http://samsonhairrestoration.com/scratch/zoomify/image_gallery/full.php?name=craig_e&shoot=0&file=1&zm=28

The variables are identical. Just have to pass them from one page to the next.

I vaguely recall that in ASP one has to store the variables on the first page, in a hidden form field? I can't recall for sure and never done it in php.

What's the fastest, easiest way to do this in php?

Modify the "Full screen" URL on this page so that its url point to:
http://samsonhairrestoration.com/scratch/zoomify/image_gallery/full.php?name=craig_e&shoot=0&file=1&zm=28

So instead of:
<a href="#">Full Screen</a>

You would need:
<a href="http://samsonhairrestoration.com/scratch/zoomify/image_gallery/full.php?name=craig_e&shoot=0&file=1&zm=28">Full Screen</a>

Hello, I made a mistake in explaining myself.

This is going to be a DYNAMIC link, so can't hardcode.

What I need to to grab the URL that loads 5.php page (the first page) and build a new URL where the is replaced with the URL of fullscreen page.

So
5.php?name=craig_e&shoot=0&file=1&zm=28

would become

full.php?name=craig_e&shoot=0&file=1&zm=28

What is the best way to do that? Use URL Parse?

OK. Try this:
echo('<a href="http://samsonhairrestoration.com/scratch/zoomify/image_gallery/full.php?name=' . $_REQUEST['name'] .' &shoot=' . $_REQUEST['shoot'] . '&file=' . $_REQUEST['file'] . '&zm=' . $_REQUEST['zm'] . '">Full Screen</a>');

Question: why did you use _REQUEST instead of _GET ?
