Is there a way I can have a single form field on a page and when I enter something into it and click submit, have the info added into my URL.

Here is may sampe code. I am sure that I am going about this all wrong





<html>
<head>
<title>Test</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
</head>

<body>
<form name="form1" method="post" action="../folder/$idNo">
<input name="idNo" type="text" id="idNo">
<input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit">
</form>
</body>
</html>

So you want to submit the form and then have the values in the URL?
You need to use the GET method....

<form action="formpage.php" method="get">
<input name = "idNo" type="text">
<input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit">

This would give a url of www.example.com/formpage.php?idNo=the value in the field.
