Okay, I've gotten myself in a little bit of a predicament. Let's start at the top...
The problem now is that the parent page itself was generated from a search, so simply loading the page will lose all of the search information that was passed to it.
So what I need to do is refresh the search results page as to not lose the search criteria, but then also have the page include the parsed values, (like searchresults.php?myvalue=7).
So it's like I need to do load and refresh in one. Is this in anyway doable? Or at least is there a way around the problem?
