in reply to CGI form help with buttons

This is mostly an HTML issue. There are a few ways you can do this.

You can create an image that looks like a button, and hyperlink it to the page you want to go to

<a href="/cgi-bin/my_script.pl?param1=foo"><img src="button_foo.png">< +/a>

If you know any CSS you could use a similar approach, but with a DIV tag styled to look like a button

You could create a small form and use a submit button

<form action="/cgi-bin/myscript.pl" method="POST"> <input type="hidden" name="param1" value="foo"/> <input type="submit" value="Go to Script"/> </form>

You can also use Javascript on a Button tag

<button onClick="window.location='http://mysite.com/cgi-bin/my_script. +pl?param1=foo'">Go to Script</button>
