L\'il PHP problem
I have a contact page on my website which has a link to an online form which (opens in a new window) mail details to me. The PHP mailer works fine but I would like, after pressing "submit", that the online form window closes and a specified page opens in the "main browser".
Basically what I need is, user clicks "online form" from contact page, online form opens up in new smaller window, user enters info and presses "submit", the details are mailed to me (does all of this already), THEN the online form window closes and a specified page loads in the main browser window.
This is probably simple but I'm a bit of a PHP novice! I can paste the code I already have if that helps
You could put the mail script and form on the same page then just have the form call itself, check for a post variable, if it exist then do the send mail.
Or you can use header(link:"http://www.whatever.com") to have the page redirect once it is done processing.
Thanks for the reply.
I have already used a header to redirect the page but I want to close the form and redirect the main browser to a new page?
what chowmein was suggesting was NO POPUP, but instead have a page on your main site. Most users have popup blockers
and php doesnt like opening and closing pages much
why do you need to open it in a new window and close the old one anyway? just use the same one
