How to re-direct to id within same page

Hey Guys,

After sending a form I want to redirect to the same page and display a thank you message. The problem is it's a one pager website so the form I want to redirect to is at the bottom. The thank you message is displaying but you have to scroll down to see it.

What's the best method to achieve this?

I tried:

header('Location: ../index.php#section6?status=thanks');

But that didn't work! Any suggestions?

Did u tried a absolute url and changed the order of your parameters?

Something like that:

header('Location: http://www.mypage.com/index.php?status=thanks#section6');
