Well I tried setting the variable to a constant value and it still didn't
work.  What I eventually want to pass is an ID retrieved from the DB that
will be needed by every page

You can't pass resource types like database connection IDs in URLs as 
they are only relevant for the instance of the script in which they are 
created. The same goes for things like file identifiers (from fopen) and 
other stuff like that.
