The $_GET variable is used to find a passed PAIR of information sent from HTML to PHP, like ?country = Itaily. You could pass the info contained in a <p> tag, but this has to be done in HTML with JS before sending the information.

It possible e.g. like that, but this is a bit useless

HTML:
<p id="my_p_name">
    Lorem ipsum
</p>
<a href="https://somewebpage.com?pName=my_p_name">Lorem</a>

can you describe in more details why you need <p> name in php,
or maybe you are looking for functionality using AJAX e.g.

index.html
HTML:
<html>
    <head>
        <script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.7.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
    </head>
    <body>
        <ul>
            <li><a href="#">A</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">B</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">C</a></li>
        </ul>
        <p id="my_p_name"></div>

        <script>
            $(() => {
                $('ul a').click((e) => {
                    e.preventDefault();
                    var letter = e.target.textContent.toLowerCase();
                    $('#my_p_name').load(`letter.php?selected=${letter}`);
                });
            });
        </script>
    </body>
</html>

letter.php
PHP:
<?php
  echo "You chosen the letter {$_GET['selected']}!";
?>

Given that I am not certain as to what you are trying to accomplish, I can question your understanding of 'super global' variables! Perhaps use $-POST instead?

to pick a bigger element in your html, you have to pick it by Js first.
as an element could be 'parent' or 'child'.

There is a slight difference between $_GET and $_POST.

  1. $_GET:
    • Data in the $_GET array is passed through the URL's query parameters. For example, if you have a URL like example.com/index.php?name=John&age=25, the data is being sent using the GET method.
    • It's suitable for passing small amounts of data and is often used for requesting data from the server. However, since the data is part of the URL, it can be visible to the user and may have length limitations depending on the browser and server configuration.
  2. $_POST:
    • Data in the $_POST array is sent through the HTTP request body and is not visible in the URL.
    • It's used for sending larger amounts of data and is more secure for transmitting sensitive information like passwords because it's not directly visible in the URL and doesn't have the same length limitations as GET.
but both can be accessed via $_REQUEST.

I'm afraid you are not understanding what I was suggesting! There is certainly a significant difference between $_GET and $_POST, although I inquired as to if he was familiar with these variables, and if he should experiment to ultimately receive a solution!
