Cusotm error message for searchform
On my site I have e search form wich looks like this:
<form action="index.php/search" method="POST"> ... </form>
search.php I am processing the user input and checking for errors.
Now if there is some kind of error I wand to redirect to my main page and display an error message under the search bar, indicating what was wrong with the userinput.
However, I am not shure how to do this. My idea was to use
in search.php and
$error = $_GET['error']; on my main page to extract the GET variable form the URL. Howerver, this does not seem to work (
$error never gets set).
Any suggestions what could be wrong with the existing code? Or is there a solution that is even better then what I am trying to do?
If i change
'mistake' the redirect does not even properly redirect to my main page.
