I'm trying to make links dynamically where when you click them they reload the page passing an argument. Ala:
for($rankIndex = 1; $rankIndex <= 5; $rankIndex++) {
    echo($ranks[$rankIndex] . "<br>");
    while($memberNames[$rankIndex][$index] != "" && $memberNames[$rankIndex][$index] != "_DEFAULT") {
      $name = $memberNames[$rankIndex][$index];
      echo("<a href=$memberPage?profile=$name>$name</a><br>");
      $index++;
    }
    echo("<br>");
  }


The problem is $memberNames[$rankIndex][$index] has more than one word. Like "Joe Schmoe" and it is only setting ?profile to the first part.. ala ?profile=Joe instead of ?profile=Joe%20Schmoe. How do I fix that? I kinda know whats wrong and have tried doing ?profile=\"$name\" but that just does ?profile="Joe. The $name as the link text works just fine, displaying the whole string. Any help is appreciated.

Tried that as well, had same result as double quotes. It just said ?profile='Joe

You have to urlencode stuff in query strings in links.

But you don't have to urldecode it when it comes back in, it is automatically decoded by PHP, so

$_GET['profile']

Will contain it already decoded.
