I have a webpage with lots of links which should open in new windows. I add <BASE Target="_blank"> to avoid inserting  Target="_blank"  in each "<A HREF" tag. But now a search :
   <form action="cgi-bin/search.pl" method="GET">
      <input type="text">
      <INPUT TYPE="submit" value="Search">
   </form>
will also open in a new window. How can I avoid that a new window opens if I click on this submit button?

Thank you, Ben

Hello there!

I had an advice for you.  You better disable your submit button once it is click to avoid multiple submit to happen.

So instead of this line :

    <form action="cgi-bin/search.pl" method="GET"> and <input type="submit" value="Search">

Replace it with :

    <form name="form1" action="cgi-bin/search.pl" method="GET" OnSubmit="return DisableSubmit();">
    and
    <input type="submit" name="Search" value="Search">

Then here is the javascript function for DisableSubmit() :
<script>
  function DisableSubmit()
  {
    document.form1.Search.disabled = true;
    return true;
  }
</script>

Goodluck !
