Quick question on creating link for PHP search

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello, all

I know this isn't actually a PHP questions, but I thought you guys might be able to help. I am creating a software for a forum and would like to create a link to search for a tag word that can link to a search that can find the software. The website uses this for search:

https://www.website.com/search.php?do=process

I figured out this works to put the keyword in the tag box:

https://www.website.com/search.php?tag=mysearchword

I can't figure out how to combine the two to process the search. I tried things like this:

https://www.website.com/search.php?do=process&tag=mysearchword

But that and other variations did not work. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks!

I"m guessing that you want the url to provide two arguments for you.  They would be referred to as $_GET['do'] and $_GET['tag'] which would yield "process" and "mysearchword" to your "search.php" script.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply, but the website is not mine. I'm just trying to create a link for my software's about box to have a hyperlink that will bring up the default browser and execute a search for tags relating to my software. It would include terms such as file renamer, cinemaessentials, renaming tools, etc.

I edited my first post to state this isn't actually a PHP question.
