As far as I know there is no way to set a site-wide global from within a script. Use PHP Sessions or set a Cookie and then print the variable in any script you want by calling $_SESSION['first'] or $COOKIES['first'];. But you'll need a starting point for your visitors in order for this to work.
If your visitors will be accessing scripts at random you can do an include("setfirst.inc"); at the top of each script, where 'setfirst.inc' accesses the database and sets the $first variable each time a script is called. -Kevin ----- Original Message ----- From: "Anna Gyor" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> To: <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Sent: Wednesday, October 02, 2002 2:06 PM Subject: [PHP] Global variables > Hello, > > how can I use global variables in my web portal?
