Full Version: Contact form redirect issue + some advice?
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.

I'm building my first GetSimple site and loving it so far -- I'm just having one issue:

In my contactform.php file, I usually do the following:
if ($success){
  print "<meta http-equiv=\"refresh\" content=\"0;URL=contactthanks.php\">";
  print "<meta http-equiv=\"refresh\" content=\"0;URL=index.php\">";

However, this redirects to myTheme/contactthanks.php and results in Oops! Page Not Found! I tried using the get_theme_url(); function to address the problem but I'm afraid I'm more of a designer than I programmer and can't seem to figure it out.

Secondly, the site I'm working on will list in-stock cars on the home page and each car will have its own page. At the moment the client will have to delete/add cars and pages manually. Is there a way I could streamline this process at all? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a lot.

are you writing your own contact-form? Why not using an existing one?

I am sure you know about absolute and relative paths


will this URL be available from all levels of your site? Why not try an absolute path first and find out?

maybe your solution for a list of in-stock cars (are whatever) is too simple

how many cars are in stock? If there are more than 5 your solution is a pain ;=), that's true

don''t you think that something where the user enters data in a form will be better usable?

maybe the item manager plugin?

maybe using the news-manager plugin for that?
Hi Connie,

Yes, I'm just using the same contact form I always use. The absolute path worked! I just have to remember to change it when the site goes live because I'm working locally at the moment.

I quickly installed the Item Manager plugin and it seems almost perfect for what I require! I think I must be doing something wrong, though:

I've made a category, custom fields, a couple of items, and have set the pages on which the information should be displayed. However, the item manager doesn't seem to be remembering what I enter into the custom fields (when I click on the item, all fields are blank), and only the title of each object is being displayed, with nothing in the individual pages.

Have I missed a step?

Thanks for your help.
please read the postings in the support-forum of this plugin, there is a lot of information available there

cheers, Connie
