Syntax for redirect URL

Syntax for redirect URL after logging in

I have a page here with a standard login form:

http://www.safariawards.com/africa/handprintsafarilodge1/

Part the last part of the URL is dynamic, i.e. 'handprintsafarilodge1' is a field in a database.

How does the redirect URL need to look to redirect to return to the page with the same lodge listed? e.g.:

../africa/<?php echo $row_rs_Lodge['GSG_URL']; ?>

that looks correct for the redirect URL as long as the recordset is on the page before the redirect URL.

What should the syntax be on the line to include the PHP echo part?

"successRedirect" => "../africa/<?php echo $row_rs_Lodge['GSG_URL']; ?>/",

"successRedirect" => "../africa/".$row_rs_Lodge['GSG_URL']."/",

Thanks Jason - that's returning to:

../africa//

Without picking up the GSG_URL field.

Not sure if that's due to a typo or maybe the ordering of the code at the top of the page.

I've attached it to see if you can spot anything obvious.

the recordset uses a URL variable to filter. That URL varaible doesnt exist when the form is posted.

in the form tag:

<form class="Basic_Default" id="Insert_Basic_Default" name="Insert_Basic_Default" method="post" action="<?php echo (htmlentities($_SERVER["PHP_SELF"], ENT_QUOTES)); ?>">

change the action:
action="<?php echo (htmlentities($_SERVER["PHP_SELF"], ENT_QUOTES)); ?>"

to:
action="<?php echo(htmlentities($_SERVER["PHP_SELF"], ENT_QUOTES)."?".$_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]); ?>"

Thanks Jason. That works, although it does show up as:

http://www.safariawards.com/africa/handprintsafarilodge1/?GSG_URL=handprintsafarilodge1

In the browser.

I had managed to get it working by adding a session:

<?php
@session_start();
if (!isset($_SESSION["GSG_URL"])) {
$_SESSION["GSG_URL"] = "".$row_rs_Lodge['GSG_URL'] ."";
}
?>

and

"successRedirect" => "../africa/".$_SESSION["GSG_URL"]."/",

I guess either or will be OK - that extra bit on the URL isn't that big a deal.
