The second part is the page is dynamically generated php content. A $GET variable is sent to a controller script to indicate the status of the page as it reloads. The form select is passed in the $POST variable (a value that alters the php presentation of the content). The form content is sent with the submission of the form, but how do I send the $_GET variable. In PHP it is a "send header" function.
And where did I find it.... in [another [URL="http://bytes.com/topic/php/answers/9986-get-form-name-id"]forum](http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum88/5812.htm). Its get'n so a person can only find answers in a forum.
This is not working out right now. I'm getting a header conflict. To move ahead to a working version I've simplified removing the _GET.
Its still important that I have 3 forms on a page. But why can't I get a "name" property in the "form" tag and access it with POST ($POST['form_name'])?
I feel dum. Why won't this work?
All the inputs are the same, but its important which form you select, cuz I'm using a form as a tool to alter the page layout. Otherwise I could just add another input field to direct the various forms. Instead I use several pull-downs in the exact location where the change is to take effect. Its less abstract.
Whew! I'll try it... Thanks
