I can't see the thank you message!

I included this code, but still I cant see the thank you message after sending the email, in other words after I fill the form on contact.php the following code doesnt send the status=thanks to the browser, also to mention that Its working on my local server and I see the thank you message, but not on real server! anybody know why?

<?php header("Location: contact.php?status=thanks"); exit; ?>

Hi Majid,

I'm not completely sure why this isn't working for you but have you tried putting a "/" in front of the contact.php like this:

<?php header("Location: /contact.php?status=thanks"); exit; ?>

This will ensure that it starts at the root of the domain and then move on to contact.php

If that doesn't work you could try use an absolute URL. So on your server it would be something like:

<?php header("Location: http://www.example.com/contact.php?status=thanks"); exit; ?>

Let me know if that works for you,
