    Get data from URL and redirect

    I have searched the net and can not seem to find what I want.

    Basically, I want the php file (redirect.php) to redirect to the url specified in the address bar - for example: http://www.mysite.com/redirect.php?u...ww.google.com/ would redirect to: http://www.google.com

    Just like facebooks redirect.php file. Is there ANY way to do this? Please help it is stressing me out!.

    Sure you can use:
    PHP Code:
    <?php
    $sRedirectTo 
    = !empty($_GET['url']) ? $_GET['url'] : 'http://yoursite.com/';
    header('Location: ' $sRedirectTo);
    ?>
    Make sure that the url's provided are encoded as well. If you are generating them a raw_urlencode should do the trick. That prevents it from misinterpreting the characters in the querystring as a part of the actual path.
