http://bugs.mysql.com/search.php used method="post" in <form>
when i'm in search result and click "back", it just back to url which is same to result page, and no search field appears

How to repeat:
fill in and submit
got to: http://bugs.mysql.com/search.php with result
press back button, got to http://bugs.mysql.com/search.php with result, not advance search form

I cannot repeat this; "back" works just fine for me.

some tips:

The "get" method should be used when the form is idempotent (i.e., causes no side-effects). Many database searches have no visible side-effects and make ideal applications for the "get" method.

If the service associated with the processing of a form causes side effects (for example, if the form modifies a database or subscription to a service), the "post" method should be used.


bugs.php.net already use method="GET"

Fixed by changing to GET.
