Redirect stopped working

Recommended Posts

Hi all, Im using dreamweaver to help me with somethings since I am still learning php.
I have the following code, it works great except for the fact that it doesnt redirect the user to the mydepartments page when submitted, it does add the record though. any ideas?
I appreciate the help, thanks, Michelle
<form action="<?php echo $editFormAction; ?>" method="POST" name="form1" class="style1" id="form1">
<?php
$editFormAction = $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];
if (isset($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'])) {
$editFormAction .= "?" . htmlentities($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING']);
}
if
(
($_SESSION['mem_type']=="standard" && $_SESSION['count']>=5)||
($_SESSION['mem_type']=="silver" && $_SESSION['count']>=10)||
($_SESSION['mem_type']=="gold" && $_SESSION['count']>=25)){
echo "You have exceeded your maximum number of Departments. ".
"Please edit your departments or consider upgrading your account.";
}


else
if ((isset($_POST["MM_insert"])) && ($_POST["MM_insert"] == "form1")) {
$insertSQL = sprintf("INSERT INTO mydepartments (username, depid, mem_type) VALUES (%s, %s, %s)",
GetSQLValueString($_POST['username2'], "text"),
GetSQLValueString($_POST['depid2'], "int"),
GetSQLValueString($_POST['textfield'], "text"));

mysql_select_db($database_jobs, $jobs);
$Result1 = mysql_query($insertSQL, $jobs) or die(mysql_error());

$insertGoTo = "../mydepartment/mydepartments.php";
if (isset($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'])) {
$insertGoTo .= (strpos($insertGoTo, '?')) ? "&" : "?";
$insertGoTo .= $_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'];
}
header(sprintf("Location: %s", $insertGoTo));
}
?>

Do yourself a favour. Drop Dreamweaver. That code is horrible, and really, its not making your learning process any eaiser.

Anyway... try some debuging. Add this line...
[code]
echo $insertGoTo; die();
[/code]
Just before...
[code]
header(sprintf("Location: %s", $insertGoTo));
[/code]
What does it display?

Ohh good idea, you guys are so smart, ok I got this-

../mydepartment/mydepartments.php?CITY=Kwethluk

CITY=Kwethluk - this part comes from the fact that its being passed via url, now i just need to find that bit and get rid of that and it should work right?
Thanks for your help, Michelle

I'm with thorpe on dreamweaver. Never used it, never will and I've nicknamed it dreamwrecker :)

Back to your code.

If you're already in the folder "mydepartment" then there's no need that I can see to be specifying "../mydepartment/" in the variable.

Removing everything after the ? won't make much difference as its just passing parameters to the script mentioned. Try removing "../mydepartment/" and just have:
[code]$insertGoTo = "mydepartments.php";[/code]
See how that goes.

the passing variable makes sense but the page is in another folder so I would need to incldue the whole path.
Someone jsut really confused me and said that I cant do
<form action="<?php echo $editFormAction; ?>" method="POST" name="form1" class="style1" id="form1">
<?php <-- with this inside the form

Is that right?
