Hello all, I'm trying to build a forum site. The code below works fine but I dont know how to catch it from the address bar. I'm having trouble finding tutorials to help me with this.


echo "<tr bgcolor='#6698FF' ><td><a href='viewcomments.php?id=".$rows['topic']."'>

Address Bar


I'm trying to use this in code below in viewcomments.php to retrieve the address info

$id = $HTTP_GET_VARS['topic'];

I'm getting this error
"Notice: Undefined variable: HTTP_GET_VARS in C:\wamp\www\testsite\viewcomments.php"
