It worked!

another thing that I would like to clear myself.

In our intranet search engine there are two searches that are connect to each other because we have in the search results a button to quick search the web documents and a button in the same result pages for quick search our intranet images. This quick search buttons are like those in google that appear bellow their logo.

However I have a problem that is:

When i try to search for TEETH from the WEB documents front page there is no problem because either web or image buttons will return results for TEETH. However if I make a search for more than 1  keyword for example TEETH  LONDON in the WEB frontpage in the web results there are web results for both keywords but when i click on images button I just get results for TEETH... and not with London.

Basicly the keyword parser is:

$from = "$FORM{'q'}";

In the script i include  $form in:

WEB BUTTON =   print "<a href=q?q=$form&timeout=3&cat=web>web</a>";
IMAGE BUTTON = print "<a href=q?q=$form&timeout=3&cat=images>images</a>";


Analysing the "view source" in the browser i realized that when searcing for both those keywords i get:

<a href=q?q=teeth london&timeout=3&cat=images>

that means that teeth and london come up separated and not joined with the "+", the actual search comes up as only:

<a href=q?q=teeth>

... so it just searches for TEETH...

Did you understood me?? i think was a bit confusing but hpe you can understand  this.
