Hi! I asked this a while ago in the forums, but nobody seems to have
responded, so I thought (unless this isn't an appropriate venue?)
that I would re-ask it here, in the hopes of someone having an answer...
I'm working on a module which lists the profile information of users
in one table. The list can be searched, sorted, and different
columns can be displayed. Right now, I'm using the "tablesort_sql"
stuff to handle the sorting. I use a GET form to display and search
parameters around, so that when the sorting is done, it retains the
display and search options. However, I can't find some way to make
the forms retain the sorting information. The "sort" and "order"
parameters, which are added by the tablesort_sql / table stuff, get
lost when I submit a form with any changes. If I try preserving the
values in the form, so that they get resubmitted, they get saved as
"edit['sort']" and "edit['order']", which isn't what I want.
Is there some way for me to preserve extra query parameters which are
not a part of the edit array?
