I have a form created...
I have a form created in a PHP file. In the form there is a dropdown menu with two options for selection. I would like the form to redirect to a certain page based on which option is selected. So when all the information is filled out and the submit button is clicked, the page redirects based on whether Option A or Option B has been selected.The website in question is epicnutraskin.comYou will see in the form that there is a 'Please Select Amount' dropdown. These are the two options I am referring to.

Sounds great. Thanks Andrew.

here is how you would achieve something like this.

<form action="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>" method="post">
<select name="redirect">
<option value="1">Page 1</option>
<option value="2">Page 2</option>
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="submit" />
</select>
</form>
<?php
$page1 = "http://whateverfirstpageurlis.com";
$page2 = "http://whateversecondpageurlis.com";

if (isset($_POST['submit'])) {
if ((isset($_POST['redirect'])) and ($_POST['redirect'] = 1)) {
header("location:$page1");
} elseif ((isset($_POST['redirect'])) and ($_POST['redirect'] = 2)) {
header("location:$page2");
} else {
echo "make selection";
} //end if
} //end if
?>

For some reason my page cannot be access now that I've added this code. I am getting an http error 500 - "this page isnt working"
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Let me retry with this new code that doesnt have a typo
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I am still getting the same error message with this new code.

um, are you sure you saved with a .php extension

do other .php pages work on the same server?

Ask Your Own Programming Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
it is saved as .php and yes there are other php pages that are working on the server. I wonder if I should edit the .htaccess file in any way?

maybe

lets try a simple test

<?php

echo "simple test";

?>

save that code into a .php file and try it and see what happens

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
https://epicnutraskin.com/test.phpIt works.

but if you copy the code that I sent you from above into the same file and save it and upload it, it doesnm't work?

Ask Your Own Programming Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Correct, once I copy this code into the test file, it does not work. I wonder if it may be something with the $_SERVER code...

could be a settings.

I would reccomend doing a remote session now so I can connect to your computer and see what is going on?
