I am trying to develop a plug-in that has a search field and uses WP_List_Table. The plug-in is strictly for the backend and searches the users in the database and returns them along with some other meta from an additional plug-in.
When I do a search for the user the hidden input fields of _wpnonce and _wp_http_referer are added to the url string. The _wpnonce is not that big of a deal but the _wp_http_referer is a problem.
If the person using the plug-in keeps doing multiple searches the _wp_http_referer string becomes so long in the URL that it gives an error: Request-URI Too Large The requested URL's length exceeds the capacity limit for this server.
So how do I either stop the hidden values from appearing in the URL or reset _wp_http_referer each time the search button is clicked?
