hi, sorry, it is not possible to do it using only javacript, you will need some server side scripting.

Only exception is if the pages are on the same domain, then you can use AJAX on second page to retrieve contents of the first page, and parse it using string functions or regular expressions, to get only the part you need

The first page :
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<script language="javascript">
	function passElement() {
		document.location.href = "page2bis.html?myelement=" + encodeURIComponent(document.getElementByid("me").innerHTML);
	}
</script>
</head>
<body>
	<form action="" method="get" onsubmit="passElement()">
        <div id="me">you want to put this content on the next page</div>
    	<input type="button" value="go to page2" />
    </form>
</body>
</html>

Open in new window


page2bis.html :

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<script language="javascript">
	function gup( name )
{
  name = name.replace(/[\[]/,"\\\[").replace(/[\]]/,"\\\]");
  var regexS = "[\\?&]"+name+"=([^&#]*)";
  var regex = new RegExp( regexS );
  var results = regex.exec( window.location.href );
  if( results == null )
    return "";
  else
    return results[1];
}

window.onload = function() {
   document.getElementById("metoo").innerHTML = gup("myelement");
}

</script>
</head>
<body>
<div id="metoo"></div>
</body>
</html>
