Not Appending URL with Success Message

Not Appending URL with Success Message

Hi there,

Previously I have been shown how to get a successful form submission to submit back to itself and display a success message.

This was done by adding

index.php?success=1 as the success URL.

And inserting the code

<?php if(isset($_GET['success']) && $_GET['success'] == "1") { ?>
<h4 class="center" style="margin-top: 20px; margin-bottom: 20px; background: #B8F5B1; color: #000; padding: 15px;"><span style="font-weight: bold;"><em>Your Contact Form Submission was Successful</em></span><em>!</em></h4>
<?php } ?>

As an example.

I have a URL though that is not adding the appended success=1 message.

contact is the URL

When the URL is returned it goes from contact/ to the following


But it is not appending the ?success=1 message to get the success message to fire.

I am receiving the generated emails with no problem. But my client is not getting the feedback that it has been successfully sent.

Any ideas?

add the following code at line 1, i have a feeling an error is occuring that is causing the redirect to fail:



i'm betting that this is going to show the Headers already sent error being caused by the use of the virtual function for includes:

<?php virtual('/Connections/PowerCMSConnection.php'); ?>
<?php virtual("/WA_CMS/WA_CMS.php"); ?>

see this page for details:

especially the section where i talk about using the virtual function. and how to stop dreamweaver form doing that.

Hi Jason,

Changing the CMS from virtual to require_once worked! So you were right!

Thank you so much. I will remember that one in future!
