Hi All,

New to the world of PHP and such, and took on a project that I really should have farmed out, but too late now.

Here is my question: the problem is the redirect for an error message in a contact us page. I have very specific standards set for the look of the site and have to stick to it. Below is the code:

<?php 
$admin_email = "xxxx.com"; 

if(isset($_POST['submit_msg'])) 
{ 
   if (empty($HTTP_POST_VARS['name_msg'])){ 
      die('<p><p><center><h3><i>Error!</i></h3><br>CAUTION : PLEASE TYPE YOUR NAME IN THE FORM</font><br><br><span style="cursor:hand" ONCLICK="window.history.go(-1);">BACK TO FORM</span><center>'); 
   }; 
   if (empty($HTTP_POST_VARS['email_msg'])){ 
      die('<p><p><center><h3><i>Error!</i></h3><font color="#ff0000"> <br>CAUTION : PLEASE TYPE YOUR EMAIL IN THE FORM<br><br><span style="cursor:hand" ONCLICK="window.history.go(-1);">BACK TO FORM</span><center>'); 
   }; 
   if (empty($HTTP_POST_VARS['msg_body'])){ 
      die('<p><p><center><h3><i>Error!</i></h3><font color="#ff0000"> <br>CAUTION : PLEASE TYPE YOUR MESSAGE IN THE FORM</font><br><br><span style="cursor:hand" ONCLICK="window.history.go(-1);">BACK TO FORM</span><center>'); 
   }; 

   $name_msg = htmlspecialchars($HTTP_POST_VARS['name_msg']); 
   $name_msg = str_replace("&amp;","&",$name_msg); 
   $name_msg = str_replace("ی","ي",$name_msg); 

   $msg_body = htmlspecialchars($HTTP_POST_VARS['msg_body']); 
   $msg_body = str_replace("&amp;","&",$msg_body); 
   $msg_body = str_replace("ی","ي",$msg_body); 
   $msg_body = nl2br($msg_body); 

      if (!empty($HTTP_POST_VARS['lvl_msg'])) 
      { 
         $lvl_msg  = str_replace('http://','',$_POST['lvl_msg']); 
		 $lvl_msg = str_replace("&amp;","&",$lvl_msg); 
		 $lvl_msg = str_replace("ی","ي",$lvl_msg); 
      } 

         if(!strpos($_POST['email_msg'],"@")) 
         { 
            print('<p><p><center><h3><i>Error!</i></h3><br>CAUTION : PLEASE TYPE YOUR EMAIL<br><br><span style="cursor:hand" ONCLICK="window.history.go(-1);">Back to form</span><center>'); 
            die('<br><br><center>EXAMPLE : admin@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx.com </center>'); 
         }; 

      $from  = htmlspecialchars($HTTP_POST_VARS['email_msg']); 
      $body = '<html>
<head>

<body> 
<table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">

</table> 
</body> 
</html>'; 
if(!mail($admin_email,'NEW CONTACT',$body,"From: <$from>\n"."MIME-Version: 1.0\n"."Content-type: text/html")) 
{ 
[B] print('<p><p><center>><h3><i>THE EMAIL COULD NOT BE SENT!</i></h3> <br>SERVER IS BUSY, PLEASE TRY LATER<br><br><span style="cursor:hand" ONCLICK="window.history.go(-1);">RETURN TO FORM</span></center></p></p>'); [/B]
}else 
{

At first, it kept overwriting my CSS, but I figured that out quickly enough. Now it redirects to an error page, or a success page, but I'm having trouble with getting it to direct (see emboldened part of code) itself to a specific page (error_contact_us.php, or successful_contact.php) and be able to return to the contact us page (if an error), or if successful hold the success page up for 15 seconds and then redirect to the home page. I'm just not savvy enough with php to know how to do what is probably a very simple task.

Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated;.

Ron

Okay, gotta add this to this thread since they're related:

I'm having the same problem with the login, logout, and register scripts... I can't seem to get them to play nicely with the html/CSS of the site I'm building... can anyone help with how I should place the script on the page?
