Get URL GET values using javascript

I had a situation of getting URL GET values to my web page without using server side scripting language like PHP, JSP or ASP.

So this is a simple way to get URL GET value to your web page using javaScript. When you don’t have any facilities to code server side scripts, you can use this technique to make your website more dynamic.

Simple example :

     <script>// Import GET Vars
           document.$_GET = [];
           var getVarsString = String(document.location).split('?');
              var getVars = getVarsString[1].split('&');
              for(var i=0; i<=(getVars.length); i++){
                    var getVarPair = getVars[i].split('=');
                    document.$_GET[getVarPair[0]] = getVarPair[1];
         function updateView(){
      <input id="txt" type="button" value="click" onclick="updateView();" />
      <div id="view"></div>

Send emails using PHP

In PHP there is a function called “mail” for send emails from our web applications. To use this this function, we have to do some configurations in php.ini file of our web server. If you are using PHP-equipped web host, you don’t need to worry about this mail function setup configuration because all required configurations are done by the hosting providers.


Setting up mail function in PHP


step 1> Goto “php.ini” file in your web server.

step 2> Find “[mail function]” part in the php.ini file.

step 3 for window mail server> Give the mail servers address to “SMTP”, give the port of the SMTP to “smtp_port” (default is 25) and set “sendmail_from” to sender’s email address.


[mail function]


smtp_port = 25

sendmail_from = you@yourdomain

step 3 for unix mail server> Give the path of the mail program on your server and set “sendmail_from” to sender’s email address.


[mail function]

sendmail_path = /usr/sbin/sendmail -t

sendmail_from = you@yourdomain


PHP mail function sample code



// The message

$message = “Line 1\nLine 2\nLine 3”;

// In case any of our lines are larger than 70 characters, we should use wordwrap()

$message = wordwrap($message, 70);

// Send

mail(‘,‘, ‘The Subject’, $message);
