I am a newbie to drupal community. So please bear with me if it's really a basic question.

A 3rd party site will be sending paramteres to my drupal module using "get method". These paramters will have a url and some other information. So they will be hitting my module with a url something like http://{domain_name}/mymodule/channel/publisher=yahoo&url=http://www.yahoo.com where 'mymodule/channel' is the path set inside the hook_menu() function. When I get these paramters inside my module they get parsed for every '&' and '/' by drupal system. How can I get intact paramter values as we do in php using _REQUEST.

Any help will be highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
Randeep

Maybe $url1 = $arg(1)
You can also use the token module to get Arguments from the url [path:arg-x] or something similar.

@Amitaibu

your comment was really helpful. thank you!

but it's actually $url1 = arg(1), because arg is a function, not a variable. ;)

cheers

I'm assuming that your url intended to include the ?, i.e.
http://{domain_name}/mymodule/channel/?publisher=yahoo&url=http://www.yahoo.com

(Note that if your site is not running clean URLs the URL would need to be of the form
http://{domain_name}/?q=mymodule/channel/&publisher=yahoo&url=http://www.yahoo.com)

In either case you can use $_GET in the usual way, so $_GET['publisher'] and $_GET['url'] will contain the parameter values you are after.

And note that because of Drupal's mod_rewrite trickery, $_GET['q'] (in either case) will be populated with mymodule/channel.

The arg() function may not help you here ... arg() simply explodes $_GET['q'] on /, so that arg(0) = mymodule and arg(1) = channel.

This worked for me. I have clean urls turned on and I couldn't pass more than 1 "get" variable before it would crop off the rest of them. So I used the method ?x=foo/bar/foo2/bar2 and then did split($_GET['x']) to retrieve all of the variables.

Thanks for the reply.

You should use drupal_get_query_parameters() instead of $_GET;

What if I have clean urls switched on?

Randeep HAD clean urls on: what's the problem?

For those who want to see the alias path url instead of the Drupal internal url (node/$/nid), here is the function I use:

function url_alias_path() {
return explode('/',$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']);
}

It returns an array with all the parameters in the URL.

If I want Drupal to store a parameter passed to any section of the web site so I can access it in a specific module, how would I do that.

For example:
http://DrupalSite.com/?para=123
http://DrupalSite.com/products/?para=123

How can I catch $_GET['para'] and store it in Drupal session or any where else so in my custom module I can read the 'para'?

Thank you

<?php
$parameters
= drupal_get_query_parameters();
if(isset(
$parameters['para']))
{
 
$_SESSION['para'] = $parameters['para'];
}
?>

I will soon be leaving the Drupal forums permanently. To understand why, please see this thread.
