Trying to forward to comfirmation page after message sent?

Recommended Posts

Im trying to have my page go to another URL after my form has been sent but dont understand what Im doing wrong!
I can get the alert message after the completion of the form but not the forward to the new html page.

Here is the top of my script where Im haing a problem:

[code]
<?
session_start();
include_once("admin/inc.php");
include_once("header_inc.php");
if ($_POST['action'] == "go") {
session_save_path("/home/users/web/b620/pow.mysite/classifieds/");
  $name = $_POST['name'];
  $email = $_POST['email'];
  $content = $_POST['content'];
  $IP = $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'];
  if (!preg_match("(^[-\w\.]+@([-a-z0-9]+\.)+[a-z]{2,4}$)i", $email)) $alert = "You have entered an invalid email address.";
  if ($name == "" OR $email == "" OR $content == "") $alert = "To send a message, please complete all 3 fields.";
  if ($_SESSION['mail_count'] >= "3") $alert = "Only 3 messages can be sent per session.";
  if (!$alert) {
    if (!isset($_SESSION['mail_count'])) $_SESSION['mail_count'] = 0;
    $_SESSION['mail_count']++;
    $message .= "Name as follows:\n\n";
    $message .= "$name\n\n";
    $message .= "Email address as follows:\n\n";
    $message .= "$email\n\n";
    $message .= "Message as follows:\n\n";
    $message .= "$content\n\n";
    $message .= "IP address is: $IP\n\n";
    mail("john@mysite.com", "Mysite.com Message" , "$message", "From: Mysite Message Center <>");
    $name = "";
    $email = "";
    $content = "";
    $alert = "Your message has been sent.";
header("Location: commentsent.htm");
  }
}
?>
[/code]

It should forward  to the "commentsent.htm" page after the form is successfully sent.

I am not sure if your include_once("header_inc.php"); print out anything or not. But header function must not have any output before it (no html, alert, text).

Yes before executing a header() you must not have any screen output.

I also put exit() after a header so that if there is anything else in the script, I dont want it buggering up :)
