I tried googling on this, but I don't know the right voodoo of terms to enter.


How does one go about bookmarking a page that is, e.g., the result of a form submit?

For example, I want to bookmark a bunch of classifieds, but the URL either never changes or can't be bookmarked, so it doesn't work.

Examples:

http://www.amnews.com/localphp/classifi ... sified.php

Each button on that one submits a form that posts to itself.

http://www.dispatchwheels.com/

I hate linking to the root, then manually re-running the search every day. There has to a better way...?

The only thing I've come up with so far is client side scripting.

Well, the Amnews page also works with GET, so you could do this:

Lost & Found

Just add ?submitted= to the URL followed by whatever the value is. And change spaces to %20.

I haven't looked at the other site.

For dispatchwheels, try putting the cursor in the main field of the page and right clicking...under properties it will sometimes give you the (real) URL.
