I think this is what you are asking for :


if (isset($page)) {
    /* variable page exists, so we are on the second page */
    echo "<p>The string entered was : $input</p>";
} else {
    /* page does not exist, so we should display the form */

<form method="post" action="<?=$PHP_SELF?>">
  <input type="hidden" name="page" value="1">
  Input : <input type="text" name="input">
  <input type="submit" name="go" value="Go!">



(Caution - I haven't tested this... could be typos)

If you want multiple pages, you can do this:

if (!isset($page)) {
    /* do page 1 */
} else {
    switch($page) {
        case '1' :
            /* do page 2 */
        case '2' :
            /* do page 3 */
        default :
            /* someone's messing with the URL string */
