I have a form for visitors to fill out. It is created using RSForm. It asks for their contact information, then asks for a "Company Name" to search for...

From the form, I collect the info, save it to a db, and send it to MailChimp (part of the RSForm form).

Then within RSForm, I can then send them to a "return URL"

This return URL can be a hidden menu item using JooDB search item.

How do I format that URL to include for the "Company Name"

Here is the JooDB menu item:

index.php?option=com_joodb&view=catalog&layout=search

What do I change?

index.php?option=com_joodb&view=catalog&layout=search&field='company name'={companyname:value}

Note: {companyname:value} is an RSform tag that will put the company name from the form into the JooDb menuitem.

Thank you.
