Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,

Thread: How do i Link to a page after posting a form in PHP

    How do i Link to a page after posting a form in PHP

    Hi, i have got a form working on my site www.hooopla.co.uk, using the example code from this site. However i can't figure out how to make it take you to the next page once you hit submit.

    I want it to automatically go to a new html page after you hit the submit button. At the moment it echos a short piece of text informing you it has been sent then leaves you there.

    Thanks,

    Chris.

    well you can set the action of your form to the page you want and then have the script to send the infomation on that page.

    Thanks for the advice, but i don't really understand!

    Could you be more specific? I'm completely new to PHP and HTML,

    Chris.

    So, basically you want to redirect the user to another page after the form has been processed?

    If so, add the following line of code to the end of your PHP file:

    Header("Location: mypage.html");

    This line should go before the last ?> tag and simply change the name 'mypage.html' to whichever page you actually want to redirect the viewer to.

    Also, you may want to remove sections of the script that say "Echo" or "Print", as these output that message text to the viewer's screen.

    Good luck!
