(Solve) Build A Simple PHP Application Learning > Step 3 > Adding a Contact Form

Hi, there. I`m in learning this topic. But after I complete all the coding as Randy Hoyt provide & fill in the form. I do not get the result to contact.php?status=thanks page. It keep stuck at contact.php page with nothing change.

I just do not know what`s going on. Hope some one can provide a help, thank you.

Below is my code:


    $name = $_POST["name"];
    $email = $_POST["email"];
    $message = $_POST["message"];
    $email_body = "";
    $email_body = $email_body . "Name: " . $name . "\n";
    $email_body = $email_body . "Email: " . "$email" . "\n";
    $email_body = $email_body . "Message: " . $message;

    // Todo: Send email

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

$section = "contact";
$pagetitle = "Contact Mike";

    <div class="section page">

        <div class="wrapper">


            <?php if (isset($_GET["status"]) AND $_GET["status"] == "thanks") { ?>

                <p>Thanks for the email! I&rsquo;ll be in touch shortly.</p>

            <?php } else { ?>

                <p>I&rsquo;d love to hear from you! Complete the form to send me an email.</p>

                <form method="post" action="contact.php">

                                <label for="name">Name</label>
                                <input type="text" name="name" id="name">
                                <label for="email">Email</label>
                                <input type="text" name="email" id="email">
                                <label for="message">Message</label>
                                <textarea name="message" id="message"></textarea>
                        <input type="submit" value="Send">

            <?php } ?>
