Redirect to different pages

in 2010 I asked this same question, but was wondering if there was a better way to handle this now....?

the thread is here - http://www.webassist.com/forums/posts.php?id=9698

I have a form with a single select list, the values are blank, 1, 2 and 3.

When I submit the form I would like to be redirected to a different page depending on my selection.

1 would take me to page a, 2 would take me to page b and 3 would take me to page c

i would use a switch case statement:


<?php
if(isset($_POST['select'])) {
switch($_POST['select']) {
case "1":
$redirPage = "page1.php";
break;
case "2":
$redirPage = "page2.php";
break;
case "3":
$redirPage = "page3.php";
break;
default:
$redirPage = "default.php";
break;
}
header("Location: ".$redirPage);
}
?>



this example assumes the name of the select is select, adjust accordingly.

That looks a lot neater!

Where would I put this code and what would I do with the $WA_redirectURL = code?

the code would go where you want the redirect to happen, so after any other code that processes the form.

this code would replace the $WA_redirectURL code, since it already has the header function in it.
