"Go to page" function not engaging

"Go to page" function not engaging

Hi,
Using UE to send a form submission acknowledgement. The form posts to itself. The Go-to action is specified in the UE. However, when the form is submitted the response e-mail IS sent but the page does not redirect to the go-to "thank you" page.



Thanks,
Mark

This issue was resolved by moving the UE php code above the Validation TK php code on the page.

By moving the UE code above the validation toolkit code, the email message will always be sent regardless of whether validation passes or fails. it may have fixed the redirect issue, but I dont think it is the "correct" fix, since it basically nullifies the validation.

I would think that there was an error occurring on the page causing the header() function not to work. Probably a blank space or line between php code blocks.

Set the page back to having the UE code after the validation toolkit code and try again.

If the redirect is still not working, try adding the following to line 1, this will turn error reporting to see if a php error is causing the issue:

php:
<?php

error_reporting
(E_ALL);
ini_set('display_errors','on');
?>



if there is an error, report back the text of the error and send a copy of your page.

change line 5 and 6:

php:
<?php virtual("/WA_ValidationToolkit/WAVT_Scripts_PHP.php"); ?>

<?php virtual
("/WA_ValidationToolkit/WAVT_ValidatedForm_PHP.php"); ?>





to:

php:
<?php require_once("../WA_ValidationToolkit/WAVT_Scripts_PHP.php"); ?>

<?php 
require_once("../WA_ValidationToolkit/WAVT_ValidatedForm_PHP.php"); ?>

Fantastic. That did the trick. I'm being drug, kicking and screaming into understanding PHP. ;-)

Dreamweaver will use the virtual function if you set the Option in your site definition on the Local Info tab "Create links relive to:" to Site. If you chose "Document" instead, it will use the require once function.
