Redirecting a form back to the index page.


Recommended Posts



I have this php code so when you click submit it goes to a thank you page, but what i actually want is it to say thank you and go back to the index page automatically. Does anyone know how to do this. Here's the code



echo "

Thank you, $_POST[name], Your message has been sent.


//start building the mail string

$msg = "Name; $_POST[name]\n";

$msg .= "E-Mail: $_POST\n";

$msg .= "Message: $_POST\n";

$recipient = "kreativ108@gmail.com";

$subject = "comment form";

$mailheaders = "From: My Website \n";

$mailheaders .= "Reply-to: $_POST";

//send the mail

mail($recipient, $subject, $msg, $mailheaders);

in php you could use

$page = 'index.php';

$sec = "5"

header("Refresh: $sec; url=$page");

the above code would redirect you in 5 seconds.


Will this header function cause the new page to be refreshed every 5 seconds? If not, I like it.
