Check if Form Was Sent in Same File

I am trying to learn how to display a thank you message after a contact form has been submitted on the same page. So if the form is on index.php, and once the form has been submitted it goes to index.php?form_submit=1, how can I make it so that on index.php?form_submit=1 it displays a thank you message by the contact form instead of what is there now, instructions.

1 Answer

<?php if (isset($_GET["form_submit"]) AND $_GET["form_submit"] == 1) { ?>
  <p>Thanks for contacting me!</p>
<?php } else { ?>
  <form method="post">
    <!-- contact form goes here -->
<?php } ?>

Glad to help!
