    Help with search results and a frame

    I have built a frame, on the left side of the frame is my search and I am trying to get the results to display on the right side.

    I understand how to get this done by just using a link:

    <a href="Content.cfm?id=Standards_AccessingtheStandardsReport" target="rightside">Accessing the Standards Report</a>

    But I can't get it to work using the form tag needed for the search:

    <FORM action="Content.cfm?id=helpsearchresults" method="post" target="rightside">

    I'm getting an error, which i expected since I was not sure how to accomplish this.

    Any hep would be great!

    Try using get not post. And just FYI you could have found this out via Google in a few seconds. ;-) http://www.w3schools.com/tags/att_form_target.asp.

    Edit: Hmm that said I'm not sure WHY it wouldn't work with post too. But I haven't used frames for about 12 years so I'm rather rusty.
