Persistent HTTP GET variables in PHP#1
Let's say I have some code like this

if(isset($_GET['foo']))
//do something

if(isset($_GET['bar']))
//do something else


If a user is at example.com/?foo=abc and clicks on a link to set bar=xyz, I want to easily take them to example.com/?foo=abc&bar=xyz, rather than example.com/?bar=xyz.

I can think of a few very messy ways to do this, but I'm sure there's something cleaner that I don't know about and haven't been able to track down via Google.

Re: Persistent HTTP GET variables in PHP#3
Just set the link that changes bar to xyz to also have foo=abc if foo is already set.$link = ($_GET['foo'] == 'abc') ? 'foo=abc&bar=xyz' : 'bar=xyz';?><a href="whatever.php?<?= $link ?>">Click Me</a>

Re: Persistent HTTP GET variables in PHP#4
You would have to render out the links with the proper URL querystring to make that happen. This is a design decision that you would need to make on your end depending on how your system is setup.I have some sites that have this issue, and what I do is setup a querystring global variable that sets the current page data the top of the page request.Then when I am rendering the page, if I need to make use of the current query string I do something like:echo '<a href="myurl.php' . querystring . '&bar=foo';It's not the cleanest, but it all depends on how your system works.

Re: Persistent HTTP GET variables in PHP#5
Here's one way....//get passed params//(you might do some sanitizing at this point)$params=$_GET;//morph the params with new values$params['bar']='xyz';//build new query string$query='';$sep='?';foreach($params as $name=>$value){ $query.=$sep.$name.'='.urlencode($value); $sep='&';}

Re: Persistent HTTP GET variables in PHP#6
If you are updating the query string you need ot make sure you don't do something like $qs="a=1&b=2";$href="$qs&b=4";$href contains "a=1&b=2&b=4"What you really want to do is overwrite the current key if you need to . You can use a function like this. (disclaimer: Off the top of my head, maybe slightly bugged)function getUpdateQS($key,$value){ foreach ($_GET as $k => $v) {if ($k != $key){$qs .= "$k=".urlencode($v)."&"}else{$qs .= "$key=".urlencode($value)."&";}}return $qs} <a href="reports.php?<?getupdateqs('name','byron');?">View report</a>

Re: Persistent HTTP GET variables in PHP#7
Very nice. Although you could have used http_build_query to build the query. bravo.

Re: Persistent HTTP GET variables in PHP#8
Save some code and use the built-in http_build_query. I use this wrapper in one of my projects:function to_query_string($array) { if(is_scalar($array)) $query = trim($array, '? \t\n\r\0\x0B'); // I could split on "&" and "=" do some urlencode-ing here else $query = http_build_query($array); return '?'.$query;}Also, though it isn't often used, you can have $_GET on the left-hand side of an assignment:$_GET['overriden_or_new'] = 'new_value';echo '<a href="'.to_query_string($_GET).'">Yeah!</a>';Other than that, just do what Paul Dixon said.
