I am Recieving emails! but redirect page goes to my root .index file

Hi
I have gotten to the point of recieving emails back from form when submitted. but when submit button is pushed I go back to the root .index.html page I am using godaddy .gdform.php
The godaddy gdform.php help shows a redirect field I could add it is

<input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="yoururl.html" />

Would I just have to add this to the contact form code? would it have to be in a specific spot?

Thanks alot im new at this form business

The contact form solution pack is set up to redirect to the thankyou.php page after submitting the form and sending the email. If you want it to forward to another page, find this line of code in the contactus.php page:
header("Location: thankyou.php");

and change the thankyou.php to another page.

Thanks for the reply Jimmy

I have the code as in your reply I did not change it from the default but I think the problem is that I am using godaddy gdform.php and that is redirecting me to the root index.html page as I wrote in my first post they show you what code to use to redirect but im not sure what to do with it. Here is a link to the godaddy page 512#gdform you have to click on gdform.php to expand its contents.

Thanks

From the instructions it appears that you would insert the code into your form. So inside your form tags.

Do you have a link to the page where your form is located?

Glad to hear you were able to get it working. Was it as simple as inserting that line of code right under the form tag?

The Fix

Since there was not a reply to how this was fixed i will provide the answer so others can view if needed.

All you need to have done is add the code after the <form> line of code.

<input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="yoururl.html" />

This is if your using godaddy as your hosting company and the gdform.php for sending form email.
