Description: ------------ Currently when performing the 'Jump' action, the 'display' action is set as a GET variable, which I feel looks inelegant from an end-user perspective. I have experimented with the 'Jump' and 'Controller' classes to temporarily use the container's SESSION variables to store these values instead, which keeps the URL much cleaner. Reproduce code: --------------- View the files 'Controller.php' and 'Jump.php' at:- - The function getActionName() has been modified to use the session action/name in the event that no valid REQUEST variables are present. If no valid session action is available, then use the 'default' action. - A reference to the SESSION is made, the page and action are set, the URL is constructed as normal and the redirection occurs. P.S. Is there any reason the HTTP::redirect method is not used? Expected result: ---------------- The controller will function as expected, but not display any url query throughout the process Actual result: -------------- As above (hopefully!)

The proposed solution looks even less elegant from "end-user perspective", as it will completely break the behaviour of "Back" and "Forward" browser buttons. There is a wonderful technology for those wishing the "clean URLs": it is called "frames".

What sort of arrogant, patronising response is that? It DOESN'T break the next/forward browser buttons (if you had bothered to test the code). The wonderful technology called "Frames" DOES break next/forward buttons, especially when it comes to multiple frame changes. I can't believe a member of this group would reply with such a terse response when submitting objective suggestions. Open source, closed mind.
