Send t Friend only takes to to other page

Hi Yea, I would be grateful if you could make this a pop up send to friend tutorial, at the moment when the link is clicked one is taken to anoth page but I do believe a pop up would be better, how can one pass both the http_referer and the query_string to the pop up window. best regards

How can I make the window a pop up and include the full query string

Hi yea,
Thank you for your tutorial, I was wonding how to make it into a pop up window send to friend, having got to that stage my self I found to get the full query string was a problem. I and I believe lots of others would love either a tutorial or better still an extention allowing to make a pop up send to friend with full path.

Link problem

I want to use the HTTP_REFERER code, is there a way to make that work so it gets the url from not the last page, but the one before that.   I would not need to do this, but the url is a string from that gets info from a database.  IE: http://www.testpage.com/details.asp?EventName=NAIC%20Fall%20Meeting%202002   but the email that has the HTTP_REFERER link in it only gives this result:    http://www.testpage.com/details.asp?EventName=NAIC   it stops at the %.  Do you know why this might be.
