i'm not in love with using the form POST method combined with an action url that includes pseudo-GET parameters. for POST forms, i use a convention of always having a hidden input in the form to indicate which form sent the query, e.g. <input type="hidden" name="whichform" value="foobarform"> this also comes in handy if one server script processes more than one form. as for security, there's little difference between this method, using GET values, using HTTP_REFERER, or what have you. protection against spoofing lies not in these choices. -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
