    accessing variable value

    i need help with accessing the value of a variable from a different page.

    i have an index.php file which has 2 files included to display header and footer and the center portion changes based on the link clicked on the footer.


    echo "<h2> Text from header.php file </h2>";


    $title="Title of Footer Page";
    <a href="index.php?page=web">Web Development</a> | <a href="index.php?page=software">Software </a>


    $title="Index page of Company name";
    <title><?php echo $title; ?> </title>
    <meta name="keywords" content="<?php echo $keyword; ?>">
    <meta name="description" content="<?php echo $pagedescription; ?>">
    <?php include("header.php"); ?> <p> </p>
    <center>This is the text in the center</center> <p> </p>
    <?php include("footer.php"); ?>

    whenever i click the links for Web Development or Software which appears from the footer a query string is passed to index.php I am able to display the content of web.php and software.php using the if() condition and include()
    what i need to display is a different title for web.php and software.php when a user clicks Web Development along with the content i want the title of the page to change for SEO purpose. i have defined $title differently in web.php and software.php however presently the title being displayed for index.php when a user clicks web.php and software.php the title is the same
    "Index page of Company name" as this is defined in index.php and my title tag is written as
    <title><?php echo $title; ?> </title> however the title tag remains the same whether i click web development or software link. how change i change the code to display different titles.

    i am doing this for SEO purpose so that different pages have different titles and meta tags.

    actually there can be individual files with links to individual pages however the people i am dealing with who developed the website want the header and footer to remain so that a flash file does not have to load each time an individual link is clicked.

    please advice.

    Your code is assigning the same value to $title regardless of what the query string has passed to index.php. You just need to assign a value to your $title variable depending on the value of $_GET['page'].
