Using sessions to pass info between pages (1 post)

    Hi I'm trying to use a session variable to pass a page ID from one page to another - so I know where I've come from.
    I'm using the shortcode exec php plugin to insert the php

    At the start of wp_config.php I've put session_start();

    In the page I want to pass the page ID from I have:
    $_SESSION['pageID'] = get_the_ID();

    In the page I want to pass the page ID to I have:

    echo "page id =" . $_SESSION['pageID'] . PHP_EOL;

    but nothing is passed.

    Please can you explain what I'm doing wrong or how best to pass the page ID between pages.

    Thanks for any help
