Short answer, you can't. The name of the form is not submitted in the HTTP protocol, regardless of wheather you do POST or GET. You'll have to add the name of the form as a hidden input field in the form.

Thanks.
I thought of the solution with the hidden form.
However I was wondering if I am just creating a redundant variable.
Weird, why do they allow you to have a name attribute for the form, when you can't use it.

Well, the name is useful if you intend to use javascript for any dynamic feature on your page.
