How do I pass parameters in URL string on Search Results page?

How do I pass parameters in URL string on Search Results page?

How do I pass special parameters to my search results page. I have this search page that I'm passing parameters to successfully on the URL. But, when I press the Search button, I don't know how to pass the same url parameters to the results page.

from
https://www.mywebsite.com/admin/scr/cac_prod_search.php?contact_id=33211&quotenum=98291

to
https://www.mywebsite.com/admin/scr/cac_prod_search_results.php?prod_name=Combo&Search=Search

So, on the above I searched for the word 'Combo'. So how do I add the parameters for example

cac_prod_search_results.php?prod_name=Combo&Search=Search?contact_id=33211&quotenum=98291

I need them for what I'm trying to build. I know may be it can be passed thru session but I would like to see if I can get them thru the URL.

Thanks.

(I can attach the docs if you want to see them)

You can change the action on the search page from:

action="cac_prod_search_results.php"


to:

action="cac_prod_search_results.php?contact_id=<?php echo(isset($_GET["contact_id"])?$_GET["contact_id"]:""); ?>&quotenum=<?php echo(isset($_GET["quotenum"])?$_GET["quotenum"]:""); ?>"

Ohh. No wonder. I changed the form method to 'Post' instead of 'Get' and it passed those parameters now. Not sure what else will be affected but for now, that's what it was. Thanks.

<form class="Basic_Default" id="Search_Basic_Default" name="Search_Basic_Default" method="post"

oh. the results has the if isset get:

<?php
$searchWADAcac_prod_subcategory_leveltwo_NEW_WADbSearch1 = new WA_MySQLi_Search("WADAcac_prod_subcategory_leveltwo_NEW","");
if (isset($_GET["Search"]) || isset($_GET["Search_x"])) {
$searchWADAcac_prod_subcategory_leveltwo_NEW_WADbSearch1->clearSearch();
$searchWADAcac_prod_subcategory_leveltwo_NEW_WADbSearch1->setSearch(array("type"=>"Key", "comparison"=>"includes", "join"=>"AND", "and"=>", ", "or"=>" ", "start_encap"=>"\"", "end_encap"=>"\""), array("prod_name", "prod_name2", "part_no"), "s", "".(isset($_GET["prod_name"])?$_GET["prod_name"]:"") ."");
}
?>

So...it has to be GET method. But then it doesn't pass values.

If you want to use get for the form, then you can add them as hidden form elements instead like:

php:
<input type="hidden" name="contact_id" value="<?php echo(isset($_GET["contact_id"])?$_GET["contact_id"]:""); ?>">


That would cause them to be forwarded with the rest of the form.
