Different Page Redirect following insert based on form data

Different Page Redirect following insert based on form data

Is there a way to have more than one page redirect following a successful insert of data?

I would like to direct a user to a thank you page if they have selected yes from any of the dropdowns on a page, or sent to the next form if all selections were no.

Any ideas?

One way you could do this would be to use the set session value server behavior. You can set the value of the session variable initially to be the regular redirect page, like to the next page in the form.

You would then have another set session server behavior that is triggered on the posted element being yes. You would set this variable to the thank you page.

Then in the code for the insert where the redirect page is specified you can put in your session variable that holds the redirect page.

This will result in the user going to the next page in the form if they selected all the values from the form, or to the thank you page if they selected yes to the one element.

Sounds perfect......

I have a form with 6 select lists each with a label of Yes and No. The value for Yes is 1 and No is 2.

I have found the "set session value" in the Cookies Toolkit server behaviours. Is this what you mean?

The first part of your solution says to "set the value of the session variable initially to be the regular redirect page". I assume that I go to the Cookie Toolkit set session behaviour;

Trigger - Submit Button
Session Name - Type in a session name of my choice...
Value - next_page.php

Is this right?

The next part of your solution says to "You would then have another set session server behavior that is triggered on the posted element being yes. You would set this variable to the thank you page". I assume that I go to the Cookie Toolkit set session behaviour;

Trigger - Submit Button
Session Name - What would I put here?
Value - Would I select the dynamic value of the select menu? Do I need to set the session value to 1 for each select menu?

The last part says "Then in the code for the insert where the redirect page is specified you can put in your session variable that holds the redirect page"

What would I have to manualy type into the "After update go to" field as there is no lightning bolt here.

Thanks in advance.

You are very close in your summary of the steps needed, you have got it right for the first set session value server behavior. For the second session variable you will need to have it setup like this:

Trigger - use the lightning bolt to select the first yes/no select list
Session Name - name it the same as the first one you set
Value - for this you would set it to be the thank_you.php page

Once you do this you have two choices for how to proceed, you can either update the trigger for this second set session value to check for the value of the select list being 1 (yes) and then add in more set session value server behaviors, one for each select list, or you could update the trigger for this second set session value server behavior to check if any of the six select lists are set to 1. Here is what these may look like:

method 1: add a set session value server behavior for each of the select lists
custom code for trigger:

php:
if(isset($_POST['your first select list']) && $_POST['your first select list'] == 1){




method 2: have one set session value server behavior for all of the select lists

php:
if((isset($_POST['your first select list']) && $_POST['your first select list'] == 1) || (isset($_POST['your second select list']) && $_POST['your second select list'] == 1) || (isset($_POST['your third select list']) && $_POST['your third select list'] == 1) || (isset($_POST['your fourth select list']) && $_POST['your fourth select list'] == 1) || (isset($_POST['your fifth select list']) && $_POST['your fifth select list'] == 1) || (isset($_POST['your sixth select list']) && $_POST['your sixth select list'] == 1)){



If you have your custom trigger setup like this second example you would only need a total of two set session value server behaviors. If you wanted to go with the first example you would have a total of seven set session value server behaviors. One for the default, then six more for the select lists.

In the code where you are setting the redirect page you would replace the page name with your session variable:

$_SESSION['your session var']

I have been trying to do this with grouped radio buttons.

If a user selects Yes (1) the redirect works, but if the select no (0) nothing happens.

Equally, I need it to redirect if any of the options is Yes even if it is only one of them.

Any ideas?

Have you tested it to confirm that if you select yes for any of them you are taken to the thank_you2.php page?

If so then you only need to add in the else statement for the redirect page. At the end of your custom set session value code you have this:

php:
$_SESSION["inform"] = "thank_you2.php";

}



You should update this to be like this:

php:
$_SESSION["inform"] = "thank_you2.php";

} else {
$_SESSION["inform"] = "<the other page>.php";
}



This will ensure that if the first page is not set to the redirect it will be set to this page specified in the else.

If I select only 1 Yes and the rest No, nothing happens. I only get redirected if I select all to be Yes.

Even with the above suggestion the issue remains the same

I did a bit of testing on this and determined that you do not have the proper element names in the if statement. It looks like you are referencing the id instead of the name for most of these. When an element is posted it is posted under the name of the element, not the id. This is the trick to working with radio groups, if you have two radio buttons with the same name they will be in the same group. You need to ensure that they each have a unique id though.

When I update the if statement to work with the names of the elements it seems to work as expected, here is the updated if statement that I found to be working:

php:
if((isset($_POST['House_Keeping_group_Council_Tax']) && $_POST['House_Keeping_group_Council_Tax'] == 1) || (isset($_POST['House_Keeping_group_TV_Licence']) && $_POST['House_Keeping_group_TV_Licence'] == 1) || (isset($_POST['House_Keeping_group_Water_Company']) && $_POST['House_Keeping_group_Water_Company'] == 1) || (isset($_POST['House_Keeping_group_Council_Tax_2']) && $_POST['House_Keeping_group_Council_Tax_2'] == 1) || (isset($_POST['House_Keeping_group_TV_Licence_2']) && $_POST['House_Keeping_group_TV_Licence_2'] == 1) || (isset($_POST['House_Keeping_group_Water_Company_2']) && $_POST['House_Keeping_group_Water_Company_2'] == 1)){



You should make sure to updates yours like this, also make sure that you have the else statement to set the alternative redirect page.

Hi Eric, I really appreciate your support!

I have updated my code as suggested. The two statements now look like this;

php:
<?php
if (!session_id()) session_start();
if(isset(
$_POST["HouseKeeping_submit"]))     {
  
$_SESSION["inform"] = "application_6.php";
}
?>
<?php
if (!session_id()) session_start();
if((isset(
$_POST['House_Keeping_group_Council_Tax']) && $_POST['House_Keeping_group_Council_Tax'] == 1) || (isset($_POST['House_Keeping_group_TV_Licence']) && $_POST['House_Keeping_group_TV_Licence'] == 1) || (isset($_POST['House_Keeping_group_Water_Company']) && $_POST['House_Keeping_group_Water_Company'] == 1) || (isset($_POST['House_Keeping_group_Council_Tax_2']) && $_POST['House_Keeping_group_Council_Tax_2'] == 1) || (isset($_POST['House_Keeping_group_TV_Licence_2']) && $_POST['House_Keeping_group_TV_Licence_2'] == 1) || (isset($_POST['House_Keeping_group_Water_Company_2']) && $_POST['House_Keeping_group_Water_Company_2'] == 1)){  

$_SESSION["inform"] = "thank_you2.php";
} else {
$_SESSION["inform"] = "application6.php";
}  
?>



Unfortunately I am still having the same issue, all radios must be ticked as yes for any type of page redirection to take place.

I wondered if I was having problems due to the if statements being positioned above the update behaviour code, so I put it below the update behaviour.

Unfortunately I am still having the same problem where the page is only being redirected if all radio buttons are ticked as a Yes, however I am now being redirected to application_6.php rather than thank_you2.php....
