You sould register sessions first, and if have been registered, are passing
with session_start() in each page at the top, before the <html> tag..

If you want to pass variables from a page to another, put them in the url:
test.php?var=3&name=george (e.g.)

Be sure that the page you refer is dynamic (.php)
