Form helper - form_open first param as array #1579

Hello, CI developers!
In ‘form’ helper we have the function form_open($url, $params, $hidden)

Theoretically there should be possible to put $url as array, with url segments. This should work, because if $url is not a full url address, then helper uses
(form_helper.php, line 55)
which supports an array version.
Only the problem, why cannot we use this:
(form_helper.php, line 53)
strpos($action, ‘://’) - strpos function can receive only string $action, not an array.

So, what do I offer:
instead of

if ($action && strpos($action, '://') === FALSE)
$action = $CI->config->site_url($action);

Let`s use:

if ($action && (is_array($action) || strpos($action, '://') === FALSE))
$action = $CI->config->site_url($action);

What do you think?
May be there is sense to put this little modification in the next CI releases?


This function is not intended to handle such arrays. If you want to change it - submit a pull request, but I personally don't support the idea.
