Is it possible to have stuff echo'd based on the address in the address bar of your browser ?

So like...

if address in the address bar = index.php?page=21

then echo the below

echo "Page " . number_format($page) . " of " . number_format($totalpages) . "<br />";
		   
	  $starting_user = $i = ($page - 1) * $h + 1;
	  
	  echo "Results: " . number_format($starting_user) . " to " . number_format(min($starting_user+$h-1, $num)) . "<br />";

      if ($page > 1) {
		 echo '&nbsp;<a href="index.php?page=21" title="First Page">First</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;';
		 echo '<a href="index.php?page=21;p='.$prevpage.'" title="Previous Page">Previous</a>';
      }
      else {
         echo '&nbsp;First&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;';
		 echo 'Previous';
      }

		 echo '&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;';

      if ($page < $totalpages) {
         echo '<a href="index.php?page=21;p='.$nextpage.'" title="Next Page">Next</a> ';
         echo '&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="index.php?page=21;p='.$totalpages.'" title="Last Page">Last</a>&nbsp;';
      }
      
      else {
		 echo 'Next';
		 echo '&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Last&nbsp;';
      }

if address in the address bar = index.php?page=21;l='.$get_letters.'

then echo the below

echo "Page " . number_format($page) . " of " . number_format($totalpages) . "<br />";
		   
	  $starting_user = $i = ($page - 1) * $h + 1;
	  
	  echo "Results: " . number_format($starting_user) . " to " . number_format(min($starting_user+$h-1, $num)) . "<br />";

      if ($page > 1) {
		 echo '&nbsp;<a href="index.php?page=21;l='.$get_letters.'" title="First Page">First</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;';
		 echo '<a href="index.php?page=21;l='.$get_letters.';p='.$prevpage.'" title="Previous Page">Previous</a>';
      }
      else {
         echo '&nbsp;First&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;';
		 echo 'Previous';
      }

		 echo '&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;';

      if ($page < $totalpages) {
         echo '<a href="index.php?page=21;l='.$get_letters.';p='.$nextpage.'" title="Next Page">Next</a> ';
         echo '&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="index.php?page=21;l='.$get_letters.';p='.$totalpages.'" title="Last Page">Last</a>&nbsp;';
      }
      
      else {
		 echo 'Next';
		 echo '&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Last&nbsp;';
      }

if address in the address bar = index.php?page=21;n='.$get_numbers.'

then echo the below

echo "Page " . number_format($page) . " of " . number_format($totalpages) . "<br />";
		   
	  $starting_user = $i = ($page - 1) * $h + 1;
	  
	  echo "Results: " . number_format($starting_user) . " to " . number_format(min($starting_user+$h-1, $num)) . "<br />";

      if ($page > 1) {
		 echo '&nbsp;<a href="index.php?page=21;n='.$get_numbers.'" title="First Page">First</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;';
		 echo '<a href="index.php?page=21;n='.$get_numbers.';p='.$prevpage.'" title="Previous Page">Previous</a>';
      }
      else {
         echo '&nbsp;First&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;';
		 echo 'Previous';
      }

		 echo '&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;';

      if ($page < $totalpages) {
         echo '<a href="index.php?page=21;n='.$get_numbers.';p='.$nextpage.'" title="Next Page">Next</a> ';
         echo '&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="index.php?page=21;n='.$get_numbers.';p='.$totalpages.'" title="Last Page">Last</a>&nbsp;';
      }
      
      else {
		 echo 'Next';
		 echo '&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Last&nbsp;';
      }

I'm not sure if you know this already but just in case you dont.

To get the variable in the address bar into the page i.e., page use $page=$_GET['page'] This for your first example would return $page=21. Based on the variables you can echo what you need.

Similarly for the rest.

I tried something like that using the below but because of the way the URL's are it would only let me use 21 and nothing else...

  $pg = (int) $_GET[ 'page' ];
  if( 21 === $pg ) {echo 'Test...';}

Try this

$pg = $_GET['page'];
if($pg==21) {echo 'Test...';}

You should then be able to elseif for the other values.

$pg = $_GET['page'];
if($pg==21) {
   echo 'Test...';
} else if ($pg==22) {
   echo 'test2'; 
}

Try this

$pg = $_GET['page'];
if($pg==21) {echo 'Test...';}

You should then be able to elseif for the other values.

$pg = $_GET['page'];
if($pg==21) {
   echo 'Test...';
} else if ($pg==22) {
   echo 'test2'; 
}

Because of the special characters in my link it doesnt appear to want to work, thats what I guess I was trying t osay before.

$pg = $_GET;
if($pg==21) { echo 'Regular...';}
else if ($pg==21;n='.$get_numbers.') { echo 'Numbers...'; }
else if ($pg==21;l='.$get_letters.') { echo 'Letters...'; }

Gives me this: syntax error, unexpected ';'

Please encapsulate your string literals in quotes. else if ($pg=="21;n='.$get_numbers.'") { echo 'Numbers...'; } The direct entry for the 21 is because of the integer. You need to encase the string in quotes to do the check.

In your code $get_numbers and $get_letters are variables.
In the urls in the link you are building you are using the value of those variables in the url.

So, <a href="index.php?page=21;l='.$get_letters.'" would become <a href="index.php?page=21;l=1" in your html. If the value of $get_letters was 1. This would mean the value of $_GET would be '21;l=1' sans the quotes.

In your urls you are also concatenating the variables together with a semi-colon. If these are two different values they need to be passed with an ampersand. <a href="index.php?page=21&l='.$get_letters.'" In your code you can then test for these as separate values. $_GET and $_GET.

$page = (int) $_GET['page'];
$letter = $_GET['l'];
$numbers = $_GET['n'];

That did the trick, I guess I;mn so eager to finish this I just didn;t even think of that when I should have. So thx...

However, we're now left wiht a bit of an issue...

http://www.eojmarket.com/index.php?page=21

If You click between Show All, Any of the numbers and then any of the letters you will notice that Regular always shows.

When clicking around 0-9 Numbers... should show and when clicking arund A-Z Letters... should always show but they dont, Regular always shows and I think it's because of the 21.

I'm guessing thats all the code is looking at while everything else like the below is being ignored.

;n='.$get_numbers.'
;n='.$get_letters.'

Obviously Regular, Numbers & Letters isnt my ultimate goal with this code but it gets the testing done.

This is whats being used...

$pg = $_GET;
if($pg==21) { echo 'Regular...';}
else if ($pg=="21;n='.$get_numbers.'") { echo 'Numbers...'; }
else if ($pg=="21;l='.$get_letters.'") { echo 'Letters...'; }

I guess I wasnt specific enough when I made the post but I need data to show based on the exact link being displayed in the address bar.

In your code $get_numbers and $get_letters are variables.
In the urls in the link you are building you are using the value of those variables in the url.

So, <a href="index.php?page=21;l='.$get_letters.'" would become <a href="index.php?page=21;l=1" in your html. If the value of $get_letters was 1. This would mean the value of $_GET would be '21;l=1' sans the quotes.

$page = (int) $_GET['page'];
$letter = $_GET['l'];
$numbers = $_GET['n'];

All the get stuff for letters and numbers has already been worked out...

PHP is a loosely typed language.
$pg is always a string result from the url e.g. '21', '21;n=0', '21;l=0'

When you do a comparison against an integer value if($pg == 21) { echo 'Regular...';} $pg is cast to an integer value. So var_dump( (int) '21;n=0' ); will yield int 21.

Since you're doing a string comparison across the whole thing, instead of == 21 it should be == '21' OR you should split those up into individual variables and test the parameters individually like I was trying to suggest before...

Well, I know little to nothing about PHP, especially when it comes to stuff like this so in reality I have no idea what your talking about. Also, all of this code is work someone did for me a long time ago that I sort of added to in times past.

The solution was provided in my previous post

instead of == 21 it should be == '21'

There is no value to me just giving you the solution and you just copying and pasting it into your code. By providing you the information I did, you can attempt to learn why you're having a problem and how to address it in the future.

You're still going to have a problems with the additional code you posted too:

else if ($pg=="21;n='.$get_numbers.'") { echo 'Numbers...'; }
else if ($pg=="21;l='.$get_letters.'") { echo 'Letters...'; }

$pg=="21;n='.$get_numbers.'" and pg=="21;l='.$get_letters.'" are not going to match "21;n=0" or "21;l=0". You have mixed concatenation, single quotes and double quotes together. Those conditions are going to try to match on the string "21;n='.0.'" which is not being passed in your url.

else if ($pg=="21;n='.$get_numbers.'") { echo 'Numbers...'; }

should be revised to

else if ($pg=="21;n=$get_numbers") { echo 'Numbers...'; }

In double quoted strings php will parse variables. If you use single quotes you need to concatenate your variable. e.g. else if ($pg=='21;n='.$get_numbers) { echo 'Numbers...'; } Both of these statements will yield the same result and should both work correctly.

Solution found...

  $pg = (int) $_GET[ 'page' ];
  if ($pg == '21' && isset($_GET['n']) && $_GET['n'] == $get_numbers)
  { 
    echo 'Numbers...';
  }
  elseif ($pg == '21' && isset($_GET['l']) && $_GET['l'] == $get_letters)
  { 
    echo 'Letters...';
  }
  elseif ($pg == '21')
  { 
    echo 'Regular...';
  }

Just need to figure out how to make it work on a site that doesnt use ?page=

Like right now the above code works on sites where the addres is like index.php?page=21 but I need to now also make the above work on a site which looks just like file.php

@MoreBloodWine: Since you have found the solution to the problem, please mark the post as solved.
