Yeah, you only have to change "POST" to "GET" in the form. Then it will work like a charm.

I figured it was something simple like that.

Any more love out there for this idea? So far we have no detractors for what seems like a simple fix.

About a month since the last post. Looks like we have about five or six in favor and so far no detractors. I also am amending the suggesting to remove unset variables. Seems like an easy enough thing to do if lack does end up messing with the displayed address anyway. The following has been added to the suggestion:

agentcom wrote:Concise description:
While you're add it, you might as well remove all unset variables, so that the link becomes this: http://www.conquerclub.com/player.php?submit=Search&gs=A&np=&it=M&po=F&bc=3&ft=O&wf=Y&page=1. Note that this link already works, it's just a matter of getting Game Finder to display this link instead of the one with all the unset variables. [Thank you Sherkaner for this part of the suggestion. -agent][/list]



and

agentcom wrote:Benefits:
[list=][*]Furthermore, not displaying the unset variables will make for shorter links in the forum.
[*]Shorter links means less information transmitted, which means marginally decreased resource usage.[/list]


Did I miss any benefits? Is there any problem with adding the above to the suggestion? Let me know.

Finally, is there any reason to keep the "page=1" part of the URL?

http://www.conquerclub.com/player.php?submit=Search&gs=A&np=&it=M&po=F&bc=3&ft=O&wf=Y

The above link seems to do the same thing and we have removed another "unset" variable if you consider the default value of "page" to be "1." If there are no problems with this further reduction, then I will amend the suggestion again.

This seems like an obviously good idea that isn't getting the love it deserves.

Hearing no disagreement, I will amend the original suggestion.

We started with this:

http://www.conquerclub.com/player.php?mode=find

Made it actually useful like this:

http://www.conquerclub.com/player.php?submit=Search&gn=&gs=A&np=&mp=&ty=&it=M&po=F&bc=3&ft=O&wf=Y&rl=&sg=&pt=&to=&lb=&p1=&p2=&p3=&p4=&so=&page=1

Then reduced it back down to this without losing functionality:

http://www.conquerclub.com/player.php?submit=Search&gs=A&np=&it=M&po=F&bc=3&ft=O&wf=Y

The last item will be longer or shorter depending on how many search variables you set.
