I did a search as I had hoped this has been dealt with by someone before me.
I'm trying to take a search form on a website and ONLY pass fields or values for fields that are actually selected or used.
What I mean is this. The search form has 16 fields and regardless of how many fields the user actually uses, the string or "GET" url includes ALL fields. I'd like to make several fields excluded unless a user has selected that criteria.
When a person searches for just MLS # for instance, things like Square Foot, Price, City, Zip, and all other fields are pointless to process which causes substantial burden on the system because there are 57,000 listings.
