or something like it, however its saved encrypted.
would one way to do this would be to take the current ID and encrypt it and store it in a new field? then i'd rewrite the results page to pass the new encrypted ID as the parameter, which would be of little value to a hacker. redoing the results page is no problem.
but since each starting ID will be different, it seems a difficult task to write mysql script to update each record with a record-specific encoded ID.
any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thanks.
