SimpleMap Plugin Search Form WordPress


Hey Fellas,
I just started using the SimpleMap plugin but am wondering if anyone knows how to send form data from a different page to the page which shows the map (Example below)

(Home page) - Search form
On Submit
(Another Page) - Showing Map and Results

At the moment it just shows everything on the one page.

Plugin Link:
[[LINK href=""]][[/LINK]]

Thanks in advance!

your plugin link is missing , also please explain your question , do you want to show the result to a different page , then

try <form method="post" action="url of the page" >

see action ="url of the page" just replace this text with the url of the page where you want to send the result after submission

like action = ""

let me know if you have any question

Heres the link to the plugin -

I'm not sure if that will work because it updates the map via AJAX or something.

floy comments:

and yes. Results on a different page.

floy comments:

I've added in the search form with the correct action etc but when the form submits it goes to the page but displays no results.

Arnav Joy comments:

can you show me the url?

Here is one easy way:

Just use the Simplemap widget search form (Appearance > Widgets)
and place it on your special page with for example "Widgets on pages" plugin

[[LINK href=""]][[/LINK]]

You can then put this shortcode into your page to display the Simplemap search


Dbranes comments:

you can than view the html source of the generated widget search form.
- this way you can also see the correct html code if you want to modify the form any further
