If you hyperlink looks something like "page.php?id=3", then in the PHP program, you'll get a variable called $_REQUEST['id'], which will have a value of "3".

Any value passed in the query string that way will be available in the $_REQUEST array.

Hope that helps.

You can also find it by using $_GET["id"], which will only return variables in the URL (i.e. using the GET method). Using $_REQUEST["id"] will check GET variables, POST variables, and cookie variables; but I don't know in which order. So you might be safer to use $_GET instead of $_REQUEST.
