$ENV{'HTTP_REFERER'} <<--- Not Returning Anything

Shouldn't this return the refering site? When I used it in a work it returned nothing. Am I missing something?

RE: $ENV{'HTTP_REFERER'} <<--- Not Returning Anything

$ENV{'HTTP_REFERER'} will only return a value if you navigate to the page from an href (get) from another page.

if you simply enter the url in the address line of your browser, the $ENV{'HTTP_REFERER'} will be empty.

it is also possible that a document.location.replace may also have adverse effects on $ENV{'HTTP_REFERER'} although i haven't tried it.
