problem with post url in form_remote_tag


I’m hitting a bump with the form_remote_tag, and wondering if anyone can help… SO i’m trying to implement a tag-based search on a site and using routes, I can enter a url such as http://localhost/tag/query , which calls an action ‘search’, and returns all the posts which are tagged with the word ‘query’…


In the search.rhtml page, I have a search form, that has several filter/search options (in the select tags), and below that, there are the results which are updated in a results div. It essentially looks like the following:

                              -------------------------------- search.rhtml  -----------------------------------

<%= form_remote_tag(:update => ‘search_results’, :url => {:action => :search}, :loading => ’ SearchController.disableSearchForm()', :complete => ‘SearchController.enableSearchForm()’, :id => ‘search_form’)%> <%= select(:search, :selection, [[‘Newest First’, ‘new’],[‘Most Popular First’,‘popular’]]) %>

<% select(:search, :time, [['Today', 'day'],['Last

Week’,‘week’],[‘Last Month’, ‘month’],[‘Last Year’,‘year’]], {:selected => ‘month’}) %> <%= select(:search, :field, [[‘Search By Title’, ‘title’],[‘Title and Descriptions’,‘description’],[‘Tags’, ‘tag’]]) %>

<%= text_field_tag 'query'%>
<%= submit_tag  'Search', :action => 'search', :onsubmit => 'SearchController.disableSearchForm();' %>

<%= end_form_tag %>

<%= render :partial => 'search_results' %>
----------------------------------------- ---------------------

As you can see, I’m using the following syntax in the form_remote tag:

 form_remote_tag(:update => 'search_results', :url => {:action => :search},...

hoping that it will generate html that will post the form to http://localhost/search . Keep in mind that at this point, the url of the page this form is on is currently http://localhost/tag/query (from the previous tag search) When I examine the html source however, or use Firebug to look at the request, I see that the form is still being POSTed to http://localhost/tag/query, and not http://localhost/search as I expect… the html looks like this:

                     ---------------------------- generated html ---------------------
<form action="/tag/yard" method=
"post" onsubmit="new Ajax.Updater('search_results', '/tag/yard',
