$("#Maintask1").click(function () {
                //main.action = "maintask.html";
                $("#main").submit();

            });
            $("#Maintask2").click(function () {
                //main.action = "maintask1.html";
                $("#main").submit();

            });

If you wanna submit to two different htmls for each button click, set the action of the form to required page or html by uncommenting the first statement in each function.

Not really clear on what you need.

If you're submitting the same form to the same URL, but want to distinguish between the 2 buttons, then simply change them to input type="submit", give each a different name, and then check server-side which one was clicked - only the clicked one will exist in the GET array.

If you need to submit the same form to different URLs then your jQuery would look something like this:

$('#Maintask1').click(function() {
	$('#main').attr('action', 'url1.php').submit();
});

$('#Maintask2').click(function() {
	$('#main').attr('action', 'url2.php').submit();
});

Open in new window

If you need an AJAX submit (submit the form in the background without changing pages), then let us know

Or, place the items you want submitted first in one form,then the rest in another .

$(". Maintask1").click(function() {
        $("form#main").submit();
 });
$(". Maintask2").click(function() {
        $("form#second_form").submit();
 });

Open in new window

If using ajax, you can also "hide" the 2nd form until the first is submitted.
