Two Pages Using One Form Return Path

I have a form that is being used in two different places on the web site. When the form is submitted I'd like it to return to the results page of the page that opened it which of course are both different. I will give examples below if that helps.

You could pass a url parameter to the page identifying the page that it came from from one page or the other. Then use that to change the redirect page based on the page it came from like:

php:
<?php echo(isset($_GET["media"])?"mediaresults.php":"clientresults.php"); ?>

This was something you did for me. How would I make that work with this:

$UpdateGoTo = "".(isset($_GET["from"])?$_GET["from"]:"billing_media_results.php")  ."?return";

Just pass in the url parameter from=pagename.php when you redirect to the page.

Sorry sometimes I don't think before I post, that is what exists on the page currently. Being that it is something that you did I don't fully quiet understand what it is currently doing other than bringing me back to the "billing_media_results.php" and retaining the results of the previous search. I'm not sure how to make what you suggested work with with what you already did. Hope that makes more sense.

I think my answer is the same... All you have to do is include the page name in the url when linking to the page to identify the page you want to return to after the update.

Sorry to be persistent but I don't know why the $_GET['from'] is in there, there is not URL parameter involved...

$_GET means "check the url"... so if you link to that page with: yourpage.php?from=lastpage.php then when you complete the update it will return you to "lastpage.php"

I know what that means, however it was there before I started this. Maybe it was an attempt at this. no worries, I'll figure it out.

Yes. I'm sure I implemented it on at least one other page. But now that it is set up, you can use the existing code by just adding the URL parameter when you want to change the page that it returns to in the same way I did.
