Help: Referencing Articles in Form Action=" " to run PHP

Post by cacard » Mon Nov 09, 2009 4:52 pm

Good morning,

I am having a bit of a problem creating a team record page for my swim team.

On the page I have a form which will allow users to input a sex (male, female) and an age group. The form action is supposed to reference the page it's on in order to run the embedded PHP script and report the team records for that particular age group.

I can get the script to work outside of Joomla however I am having trouble setting up the form action in Joomla to reference the article it is on and thus pass the user entered variables to the script. Right now the action references /index.php?sex=XXX&age=XXX instead of the article itself. Nothing I try is working.

I've done a bunch of searching and cant find an answer on the forms. I apologize if some of you have answered this question many times before but I'm really stuck.

the website is at http://www.wellesley-masters.com

Thank you,
Chris

Set a form action to something like this: index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=2 where 2 should be replaced by your article id. Then the article can get the variables via get or post or whatever. Hope it helps...

Thank you very much. The fix ended up being exactly what I was doing with the exception of installing DirectPHP to allow php in articles. Things are running smoothly now, thanks for verifying!
