AFAIK, there are really only two ways to accomplish this task:
  • Carry the hidden variables through on each page (what you're currently trying to avoid)
  • Implement some other method of preserving state (i.e., cookies, etc)
This is due to the fact that the web browser/server connection is stateless, so you have to do one of the above in order to preserve the state of the variables.
