I have a form in which i have a submit button
I have made the button a link(a href) so that it goes to the following page

http://chapters-beta.ccim.com/chapters/chapter_admin/alabama?action=show_home

it works fine in mozila but in IE it goes to this page

http://chapters-beta.ccim.com/chapters/alabama?user=&password=&Submit=Login

Please if anyone know why it is doing that,  also the form action is ""

Thanks

The button should not be a link, it should just be a <input type="submit"  /> and specify method="post" on your form as one previous poster stated.  

A link will always use a get request and pass the parameters in the URL, as you are seeing.
