[FX.php List] Passing a direct link

Hey Steve,

Thanks, that works well _except_  - there's already a $_post data for that
field on that page because it is the general search results page, has a
form on it that returns to itself - uses $_POST data to refer to existing
queries, set up form elements etc etc. 

I feel like some of the stuff I'm doing is reasonably OK, and the rest is
utterly clueless! ;-)

I will have to set up two searches, I guess, and test for isset ($_POST)
or isset ($_REQUEST) to display different result sets? Is that how you'd
go about it?

Maybe I'll just set up a second results page from the map using a
different search for the time being - inefficient, but I'm under the
hammer to get a project done - I'll clean it up later on...
