I was wondering how you take a value given by the user via textbox/form/etc, and propagate it to other links within my webpage.
For example, I'm building a website that retrieves stock quotes. I have a form where the user can type in a stock symbol (i.e. GOOG, MSFT, KKD, etc) and click "search" which will automatically take them to the "Lookup Symbol" page with that value that was entered. From here I want to make it possible so that the value the user entered in stays that value until a new symbol is entered in. The user can click on the "Quotes" link without typing in the same symbol to look up the quotes for that specific stock quote. I know this has to do with GET and POST but am a little confused on how to propagate the value.
