URL GET Vars to PHP Array

Sometimes you will need to retrieve the GET variables passed into the current page URI or you will have a URL string to work from which contains certain GET variables, the below method helps a lot to convert them into an array which you can easily manipulate later.

parse_str(parse_url($url, PHP_URL_QUERY), $array);

$array is now an array of all the GET variables in the URL.

Alternatively you can pass a URI string in place of the $_SERVER[“REQUEST_URI”] by replacing the $url variable with something else.

No need for an example on that one, as I’m sure if you’re already reading this post then you will know what to do.
