Menu link - reload plugin only

Good morning gentlemen,

I can't seem to make a function of Framework Builder work properly.

I have a page made up of plugins: the header; left column (menu); content; footer. The left column plugin (menu) is a spry accordion widget with other links that make up menu. The accordion default is set to load with all panels closed - and it all works fine (almost)! When I click on a specific link, it loads the category results in the content area like it should.

Since I didn't know a better (or other) way, I got the menu links (a href=) by running the search form, copying the "resulted" url:

(../index.php?S_ItemCat=6&Search.x=68&Search.y=6&Search=Search&page=itemsResults),

I changing the S_ItemCat=23 for the category I wanted to display. Again, that all works fine, however, as a consequence, when I click on the next menu item - it reloads the whole page - and you guessed it, the accordion goes back to it's default setting - which is all panels closed.

Therefore, I can't open the "Decor" panel, and click the "Auto" category, then click the "Office" category (and so on) without the page reloading and closing the "Decor" panel.

I'm stumped about how to reload the content area only - without loading the menu (left column plugin). I know it's because the ../index.php is included in the URL - but I can't seem to get anything else to work. . . please help. Thanks in advance!!


Here is the left column plugin code (obviously all the links aren't connected).

I included the index.php, leftColNav_inc.php, search.php, and results.php in the zip.
