Passing a URL as a variable

  1. Is there any particular reason why I shouldn't be able to pass a URL as a variable to another form? I'm doing it on one site, but on another site (different Web host), it doesn't work. In some cases, as soon as I get to the double-slash part of the address, the variable fails to go through. In another case, as soon as a get to the "." in the address, it doesn't go through.

    Any ideas?

  2. If it works on one host but not the other, it's likely something in the host configuration doing that. Can you show us how you're passing the URL and what the result is?

    Are you passing the URL in a query string? If that's the case, the URL should be URL encoded.
