.htaccess - PHP redirect to a link in URL


For my affiliate links I want them to be redirect through an intermediate page (calling it routers) to measure certain datas and efficiency.

Assuming I have my affiliate link aswww.affiliate.in?id=sdff&para=dshjgsf&aaffid=JAHAJEE and an intermediate pagewww.mysite.com/redirect.php?someid=1&otherid=2&url=THE_URL_TO_REDIRECT_TO

My problem is that affiliate links have? and& and so when I use my affiliate link in this router URL, I am unable to get complete$_GET[url] ! Any help on how to do it with these additional parameters intact ?




Encode the Url

string urlencode ( string $str )

This function is convenient when encoding a string to be used in a query part of a URL, as a convenient way to pass variables to the next page.

pass the THE_URL_TO_REDIRECT_TO to the function







Encode your url and use it (urlencode)

$afurl = urlencode('http://www.affiliate.in?id=sdff&para=dshjgsf&aaffid=JAHAJEE');
$url = 'http://www.yourdomain.com/redirect.php?someid=1&otherid=2&url='.$afurl;
echo $url;

this urlencode encrypt all of your special characters.

if you want to get url using htacces use the following link. This will guide you lot.
