Not to mention, the header() statement is being used incorrectly in the example code.
You don't echo out the header() statement. You simply use it. For example... <?php include("whateveryouwant.inc");//as long as the .inc does not output to browser ...BUNCHA' PHP STUFF, BUT NO ECHO STATEMENTS... header("Location:www.example.com"); ?> In your sample code, you include("mainmenu.php") which looks like it would output to the browser. You can't to that on the same page you use header().
