Header Function Question
In the video, Alena reminds us that there must be no output before header function for the redirect to work. However, if we look at the code:
echo "<pre>"; $email_body = ""; $email_body .= "Name " . $name . "\n"; $email_body .= "Email " . $email . "\n"; $email_body .= "Details " . $details . "\n"; echo $email_body; echo "</pre>"; //To Do: Send Email header("location:suggest.php?status=thanks");
Shouldn't the echo of $email_body and </pre> mess up the header function, stopping the redirect from happening?
