    Breadcrumb navigation on dynamic website

    Hi everyone,

    I have a question about implementing breadcrumbs on a dynamic website.

    How can I retrieve the previous page's URL so that I can use it in my breadcrumb navigation on my current page? With GET?



    PHP Code:
    page5.php?city=Amsterdan&foo=bar 

    I'm trying to figure this out, so I'd be grateful if someone could save me a few hours.


    Thank you !

    Hi please don't re-invent the wheel.
    There are already ready made classes for this.
    Just Google PHP breadcrumbs class.

    Or what PHP framework are you using?

    You can use $_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER'] if youi only want the previous peage, or if you want more than that, you can store each page to a session variable. $_SESSION allows for you to store data across page requests.
