Okay, I think I figured out what you mean. I appended "?words=$(WORDS)"
to the end of the "comment" link on a test page. Now PHP can grab $words
from the next page. Now, how do I make HtDig add "?words=$(WORDS)" to the
end of each URL it finds? I looked through the list of .conf file
attributes, but didn't see anything... Thanks.
