Add info via the URL

Category: PHP - Software Development

I wanted to be able to add information about a generic product via a hyperlink from a separate page.In my case, I have a separate page outside OSCommerce with a list of courses and what days they are running. I didn't want to have to add every course on every date to my shop as that would be an administration nightmare. What I wanted was to be able to do was have a generic product that I can link to, and add the date information via the URL to the generic page.How does it works?Simply add the variable 'sinfo' (short for some info) to the end of your URL.ie: A typical link directly to a product may look like this:homepageEverything after the ? is a variable and is separated by & so simply add the variable sinfo with the required text. In my case the date of the course. Remember to use for spaces.homepage 5th September 2005The text will display at the top of your product info page as "Selected Date: Saturday 5th September 2005"The info will also appear in the comments for the order after checkout (not during, and not on the invoice) as "product name - sinfo" Date: 05 March, 2012
