I have this pretty complicated problem.

I have a select box and depending on what value is choosen, I wish to show the appropriate RSS feed using CARP (free version) in the target frame or direclty on the same page (preferred).

1) I am able to implement the Select Box using a form and select option.
2) On selection of a value, a new window pops up and shows the appropriate RAW RSS data
3) I am able to show RSS feed using Carp (free version)

1) How do I pass the Select value in the CarpCacheShow('http://www.abc.com/rss/RSS.aspx?value=20');
The number 20 here is the value that needs to be passed to CarpCacheShow

I am using phpbb template. So I have a php file and a tpl

I am open to any other solution if any.

It doesn't seem that we have many Carp users here. Were you able to work this out? If so, please report back.

An alternate source of help would be the Carp Support Forums [forums.geckotribe.com]
