Hi,

Below code is not working. Once I run it, it works fine. i expected "Thanks" but i get nothin. is not redirecting to thankyou.html

<form name="myForm"
action="/send_email4.php" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="subject" value="Form Submission" />
<input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="thankyou.html" />
Name: <input type="text" name="fname" />
Email: <input type="text" name="email" />
Phone No: <input type="text" name="phone" />
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="submit"/>
</form>

-----
thankyou.html has nothing but Thanks.


-----------------------------------------------
Note: i have another file that redirects to thankyou.html.

Pls advise. thx.

where's your redirect part.. ??
paste that code too..

thankyou.html is the redirect file. it has nothin. only

"Thanks for your submit".

as i said, it works for other file but not for this one.

To redirect the browser, output a "Location: ..." header or its meta-tag equivalent.

I am not riderecting the web site to different url.
I am keep same url. Only when i submit the form, i want to get "thanks.." on the screen.

hey buddy,
well,have u learned php?
your are setting the form action to send_email4.php and expecting the result action to be on thankyou.html.Also u are saying you dont want to redirection ...!!!!
please be clear in your approach to your programming
if you dont no php basics please visit http://www.w3schools.com/php/php_forms.asp and learn how to use forms with php

Scenario1:
a. i have a file named "form1.php"
b. i have 2nd file name "gdform.php"
c. i have another file named thankyou.html


when i run "form1.php", i enter data then hit submit. then i get "Thanks" message.

Scenario2:
i have a file named "form2.php"
i have 2nd file name "send_email4.php"
i have same file named thankyou.html


when i run "form2.php", i enter name/email then hit submit. then i dont get "Thanks" message.

thankyou.html
has nothing but Thanks.

bc i only want to see thanks. it works.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
scenario2:
form2.php:

<form name="myForm"
action="/send_email4.php" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="subject" value="Form Submission" />
<input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="thankyou.html" />
Name: <input type="text" name="fname" />
Email: <input type="text" name="email" />
Phone No: <input type="text" name="phone" />
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="submit"/>
</form>

same thankyou.html as scenario1.

all the files are under same directory.

I am new to php. To me, if scenario works, why not scenario2?

thanks.

form 1 and form 2 both have same line.

<input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="thankyou.html" />

scenario1 works but not scenario2.

??

Hi,

open all the scripts that are the action of the forms and add at the top

<?php header('Location: thankyou.html'); ?>

Hope this works
