your form page, say myform.html.

<div><?php echo $_GET['message']?> </div>
<form action='mail.php' >
.

.

</form>

your mail.php

<?php
$mailsent=mail('som@g.com','hi','how are you');

if($mailsent)
   $msg="Mail sent succefully";
else
   $msg="Error occured while sending mail";

header("location:myform.html?message={$msg}");

and when i submit form following error occurs :

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/webzymes/public_html/webzymes.com/mail.php:4) in /home/webzymes/public_html/webzymes.com/mail.php on line 23

Please check this for me as i am learning php and can't understand such errors.

Use Following.. instead header() function..

$url=www.two.com
echo "<meta http-equiv=\"refresh\" content=\"1;URL=$url\" />

I have removed <html><body>, spaces, new lines from your mail.php, to avoid header erros.

<?php

  //send email

  $from = 'enquiry@webzymes.com';
  $name = $_REQUEST['txtName'] ;
  $subject = $_REQUEST['txtSubject'] ;
  $company = $_REQUEST['txtCompany'] ;
  $number = $_REQUEST['txtNumber'] ;
   $email = $_REQUEST['txtEmail'] ;
  $msg = $_REQUEST['txtarMessage'] ;
  $message= " Name : " .$name." \n Company : ".$company." \n Contact Number :".$number." \n Email : ".$email." \n Message : ".$msg;
 $mailsent= mail("nikita.chandra@webzymes.com", "$subject",
  $message, "From:" . $from);
if($mailsent)
   $msg1="Mail sent succefully";
else
   $msg1="Error occured while sending mail";
 
header("location:contactUs.html?message={$msg1}");
exit;
?>

Hello,

You cannot use the header() function after you have already displayed some information to the page.

You are displaying tons of info, and only after that are you using the header function().

If you want to use the header() function, you must do it before you display any output, like right at the top of the page, before you any html or any echo.

There are two sollution I can think of. A quick way is to use JavaScript to redirect you to the main page.

Replace this line in the login.php

header("location:contactUs.html?message={$msg1}"); // Goes to main page.

with this one

echo "<script>window.location = 'contactUs.html?message={<?php echo $msg1;?>}'</script>"; // Goes to main page.

The second way to solve this is to use something called "output buffering".
I have never really played around with this, but from what I've heard, this is what it does:
It automatically hold back any information you are trying to display until the last second, and then only display it.
While the output is being held back, you have a change to use the header() function.

Right at the top of you index.php file u use this funtction:

ob_start();

and right at the end of your index.php you use this function:

ob_end_flush();

Hi,

The code given above in the post displays message in address bar not on html page.

Thanks

post your latest html page and mail.php page here using advance editor

also you are using echo $_GET but in url you can see variable name is message

so change to $_GET in contact form .php

Use php form instead of html form to display successful message or else try out with jquery display messages.

You don't need any javascript - in fact I'd avoid js for this or you won't get page redirect for somebody with js switched off. Left in limbo?? Best to do it with header().


You can save a msg via sessions or cookies as well as get (querystring). Session probably cleaner, but you can also set querystring to 1 or 0

Don't put any html into this file - not required:

<?php
  //send email
  $from = 'enquiry@webzymes.com';
  $name = $_POST['txtName'] ;
  $subject = $_POST['txtSubject'] ;
  $company = $_POST['txtCompany'] ;
  $number = $_POST['txtNumber'] ;
   $email = $_POST['txtEmail'] ;
  $msg = $_POST['txtarMessage'] ;
  $message= " Name : " .$name." \n Company : ".$company." \n Contact Number :".$number." \n Email : ".$email." \n Message : ".$msg;
 $mailsent= mail("nikita.chandra@webzymes.com", "$subject",
  $message, "From:" . $from);
if($mailsent){
   $msg1=1;
}else{
   $msg1=0;
} 
//you should use the full url in header
header("location:contactUs.html?message=$msg1");
exit;
?>

In your mail page:

<?php
...
if(isset($_GET['message'])){
  if($_GET['message'] == 1){
    echo "Sent, the message is";
  }else{
    echo "Sent, not the message is";
  }
}
...
?>
