Multiple Submits on Same View

I am trying to have more than one search box on the same view. If I put
only one of the searches on the page, it works fine. If I have more than
one, the only one that works is the first one. Here is the code from my
view:

Search By Tag #

<%= form_tag :action => 'find_tag_num' %> <%= text_field_tag :tag_num %> <%= submit_tag 'Submit' %>

Search By Description

<%= form_tag :action => 'find_descrip' %> <%= text_field_tag :descrip %> <%= submit_tag 'Submit' %>

When I do a mouse-over on the first submit button in my view, it shows
“find_tag_num” and it also says “find_tag_num” when I mouse-over the
second submit button.

I think I need something between the two in this example to allow them
both to work from the same view?

thanks

You’re not closing your tags, so you end up with nested forms,
which isn’t allowed (if you use the block form of form_tag it will close
tags for you)
