redirect after form submission not working

HI

I've a couple of foerms which have been working fine - and now they dont! I haven't made any changes, as far as I'm aware, though I have upgraded WA versions.

Contact Form attached + the error message when I added the 'show errors' code to the page (removed in the attachment)

Many thanks
Chris

this code at line 2 is causing the redirect error:

<?php header('X-UA-Compatible: IE=edge,chrome=1'); ?>

move that line to be just before the doctype tag

Hi Jason

Sorry - I forgot to attach the included file - that does the emailing!

Moving that code made no difference

Instead of using require_once to add the tab_contact page to the contact page, use framework builder Plugins.


the problem is that by using require once, you end up putting the UE code that should be above the doctype tag on the contact page inside of the body tag.


this causes the headers already sent error, because there is already HTML on the page before it gets to the header redirect function.

Hi Jason

I can't get my head round framewrork plugins, so I've amalgamated the 2 pages int one and all now works.

Thanks for your help, as always.

Cheers

Framework builder plugins are basicly the same as using require_once to add one page to another, the difference is that with plugins, the page being added is parsed into the pieces above the doc type, in the head and in the body of the page. When added to the main page, the piece that is the code above the doctype is added above the doctype, the piece that is the code in the head is added in the head, and the piece that is the code in the body is added in the body.

because it breaks the original page down into the pieces and adds the code chunks to the appropriate places, it prevents the issue you experienced where the redirect doesn't work.


framework builder is a power tool that allows you to create page with pieces of functionality like a log page and re use them in multiple parts of the site.
