I had the same problem last week and took me ages to figure out how to call the variable into the file once it was in the url so just incase it helps use the $_GET command to retrieve the id from the address. kinda like this.

if(isset($_GET['id']) && $_GET['id'] !== "")//checks it is set and not blank
{
$id = ($_GET['id']);
