form_tag and link_to

Hi

I have a search box put in a form that I want when I submit I get redirected to an other page where I get results
the problem is I can’t get the right link in the target page and I am unable to make pagination because params is not set

let’s say I have the home page with the form:

<%= form_tag(result_path(:q => :term)) do %>
 <%text_field :term %>
 <div><%= submit_tag 'Search' %></div>
<% end %>

and result page like this:

<%= form_tag(result_path(:q => :term)) do %>
 <%text_field :term %>
 <div><%= submit_tag 'Search' %></div>
<% end %>
<div>

<% @results.each do |results| %>
 <!-- do smth with results-->
<% end %>
<%= will_paginate @results %>
</div>

when I click Search button, I get result page but not like expected,
I get:
http://localhost:3000/result
and what I expected

http://localhost:3000/result?q:term

How can I solve this problem: making the query in a page and getting the results in others page
without losing the normal behaviour of pagination and target form

rgds,

Hi,

Change the form :method to :get

<%= form_tag(result_path(:q => :term), :method => :get) do %>
 <%text_field :term %>
 <div><%= submit_tag 'Search' %></div>
<% end %>


thx, I’ll try this
but how can I fill the target form with the same term too in result page (I am trying to reproduce the google search experience )

rgds,

Like this .

<%= form_tag(result_path(:q => params[:q]), :method => :get) do %>

 <%text_field :term %>
 <div><%= submit_tag 'Search' %></div>
<% end %>

It worked greatly, thx
Is it possible to do the same thing between two pages of search without submitting?
means I have two pages of results, I do a search with the first staying in the same page but when I click the second page I get the search term and I perform a search automatically in the second page
(like google: after doing a web search you click image and a search for image with the same term is done or is it simple the sma epage with different tabs)

rgds,
