So I am trying to pass a variable from one html page to another using php, and then on the second page pass the variable contents into my email sign up when the user signs up. I am doing this for tracking purposes.
But I can't get the php to work, I know I have php installed on the server, and I have tried adding "AddType application/x-httpd-php .html" and "AddType application/x-httpd-php .htm" to my .htaccess file, but it only produces an pop up when I go to any of my sites pages saying "You have chosen to open..."
Here is the code itself
The link on my "articlea" page sending the user to the newsletter sign up is like so:
The on the newsletter sign up page, I added this to my header:
$val = $_GET['var'];
Then in my submit form, I have added this to pass the variable info on to my mailing list.
<input type="hidden" name="custom tid" value="<?php echo "$val"; ?>">
I am not a pro at this stuff, maybe someone here can see the mistake I am making. Thanks guys!
