Help with a link generator
Hey guys, I'm looking to create what I'd see as a pretty simple page however I'm still new to PHP and would like to ask for some assistance . Basically I'd like to create a page which allows you to enter a certain number into a input area, allow you to click a submit button and then add that number into an area of a link allowing you to access it faster than it would take you to do so manually.
For example I enter "150424" in a text box and click submit. It would then give me a link which has been pre-set but allows for the number previously entered to display then becoming "http://www.example.com/150424/etc"
Any ideas on how I would achieve this? Any help would be much appreciated !

That would be easy to do:
$sLink = sprintf('http://example.com/%d/etc', isset($_POST['yourinputname']) ? (int)$_POST['yourinputname'] : 0);
If its on your own site, don't apply the http://example.com to it. This is implicit and it will make it easier to determine if a directory or file exists. If you need it to persist, look into using a session to carry the data around.
