    Hi,
    SEMrush
    This is very basic code for a search form
            <form name="form2" method="post" action="">
              <p><span class="sub5">SEARCH: </span> 
                <input name="textfield3" type="text" size="20" maxlength="20">
                <input name="imageField2" type="image" src="images/arrowovalb.gif" align="top" width="22" height="23" border="0">
                &nbsp; </p>
            </form>
    HTML:
    Now, I don't want to program searching the current site, how do I:
    1. Pass the keyword(s) entered to another URL
    2. and pre-input the words into a text field called '___' (search related topic)
    3. And what code is needed at the other site to input the 'data'

    This doesn't seen really advanced, I've just not done the details before.
    Thank you, very much.

    Nice
    ~~~~~~~
    I'll experiment, and enjoy seeing what happens.

    • I'm really close to understanding
    • The only part I'm not sure of
    • Will be easier to describe after I try it :confused:
    Nothing beats experience for really learning.
    Thanks :)
