Retain search sessions on many pages

Thread began 7/16/2013 8:41 pm by mrs | Last modified 7/19/2013 10:01 am by mrs | 470 views | 8 replies


In tandem with the above, I am also trying to do the following:

Because the search facility has a 'sticky' search effect until the search session is cleared down. I have tried:

<?php @session_start(); ?>
if (!session_id()) session_start();
if("" == "") {
$_SESSION["mrsSearch"] = "".((isset($_POST["searchbox"]))?$_POST["searchbox"]:"") ."";

And then use <?php echo $_SESSION['mrsSearch']; ?> to show the user what they just searched for. This works OK, however, I was hoping to have a constant reminder so when the user moves away from the page, and then back, they are reminded that the search filter is still active, but the session is empty...

Any thoughts as to why?
