I am trying to get some information from a static html page by using a php script inside an image tag:
blah blah blah <img src="imgredirect.php">
where the imgredirect.php script will redirect to an actual image after updating a database/writing some files with specific information. Everything is working fine - except certain information I can't seem to get:
1) the referring page is always blah.html - not the actual site the visitor came from
2) the querystring is always blank - not what was passed to the original html page
some basic searching around led to some programs that can capture this information - but my needs are somewhat unique which prevents us from buying such software.

I don't think it's possible from an image tag. The referring page will be the page on your site, not the original referring page.
