location seems to give me a bit of useful information but what about something like the PHP equivalent of
$_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER']? I also have jQuery as a resource.
window.location can be read or set and comes with properties such as
.protocol, et cetera -- each of which will provide that particular aspect of the URL as a read-only value.
document.referrer will provide the referring URL as a string. If you want the domain/path/query/et cetera to be separated from one another, you will need to do that yourself, or use a library which will provide it.
document.cookie will provide you a semicolon-delimited list of user/server-set cookies.
Again, turning that into an array or an object is on your own shoulders.<br />
Your cookie string also has no access to expiration-times, nor applicable paths the particular cookie is set for -- security.
For most of the rest of the data, you're going to have to talk to the server -- the browser likes to keep client-side script in the dark about things (like the user's IP, or session-variables, or anything else which can be turned into a security-risk).Answer2:
This will get you the referrer -
.ajax() function</a> to retrieve all the server data you'll need.
