Hi,
I would like a block of PHP in the header of a page that recieves the input via a GET url string, I want to stop any encoded rubbish and forward to a page where I can give instructions.

Thanks

I think you want to redirect to a particular page if you receive an input via url, you can do

if($_GET['urlvariable']){
        header ('Location: ' . "http://mysite.com");
}
