Passing on URL variables in PHP

On this page: 

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:

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?

OK. Try this:
echo('<a href="' . $_REQUEST['name'] .' &shoot=' . $_REQUEST['shoot'] . '&file=' . $_REQUEST['file'] . '&zm=' . $_REQUEST['zm'] . '">Full Screen</a>');

Open in new window

Modify the "Full screen" URL on this page so that its url point to:

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

You would need:
<a href="">Full Screen</a>

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

thank you so much.

Question: why did you use _REQUEST instead of _GET ?
