I apologize in advance for a possibly stupid question. I tried to find the answer, but I couldn't.

So, there is a List@Search. In the table data is displayed. On one of the fields I "hung" link to go to Form. In the settings prescribed form name, and in" Custom Variables "prescribed:"ection_id=$cck->getValue('section_id')".

Everything works fine!


When you go to a page with a Form in the URL, a variable with a long text value is additionally formed? I see this URL:

It's a nightmare!

Thus, if we remove from URL"&return=........"and reload the page-nothing changes!

Alternatively, I added a variable "return" with an empty value in "Custom Variables", i.e. I wrote: "section_id=$cck->getValue ('ection_id')&return=""»

As a result, received when clicking on the link in the URL:

This, of course, perfectly, but can I something not understand?

I believe the return parameter is the (base64 encoded) current URL. It is stored in the $config and is used to redirect back after form submission (e.g. task Save & Close). If the parameter is not there, the form still works, but you won't get redirected back after the submission.

This parameter is formed in the URL when you click on the link when displaying data in the List. When I remove this option nothing changes, everything works the same way.
