Per the usual . . . you're definitely on the right track. I changed the form action to "index.php?page=itemsResults" and it appeared as if it did nothing; but that's not true. It's submitting the query string to the URL sting; it's just not processing it with the results page.
Here's what I mean: when I go to the search page (index.php?page=searchProducts) and just hit "Search", it loads the "index.php" (Home) page; HOWEVER, the URL string is:
which is the search string welded to the end of the index.php page. Then, if I manually type the plugin extension (how you suggested prior about combining query's) with the ampersand:
the results page loads as I want/need it to!
So, I said all that to ask this: how do I combine the Search query string with the plugin: www.index.php?page=itemsResults when I submit the search form?
Might I add that the solution for the issue above will allow DataAssist generated pages to integrate almost seamlessly with Framework Builder! Excellent!!
Thanks Jason - your help to myself and many others in the forum is absolutely invaluable.
