Lets say a URL of a page is "viewcat.php?act=maincat&id=1." It uses $_GET to see how many results the page will show, for example, "viewcat.php?act=maincat&id=1&sortnum=15" will show 15 results. I am trying to use a form to do this, but no matter what I try to do, it always make the url "viewcat.php?sortnum=10" instead of "viewcat.php?act=maincat&id=1&sortnum=10." Is there any way to pass the variable onto the new page?

Here is the code for the form:

<form name="form2" method="GET" action="viewcat.pgp?act=maincat&sortnum=&id=$id">Tutorials per Page <select name="sortnum" onchange="javascript:submit()"><option value="5">5</option> <option value="10">10</option> <option value="25">25</option> <option value="50">50</option></select></form>

Please, help would be appreciated.

i'm no expert but it seems to me that you should try to use POST method for the form and GET for the receiving page


on the receiving page use,

$myVar1 = $_GET['act'];
$myVar2 = $_GET['id'];
$myVar3 = $_GET['sortnum'];

to catch the variable data.
