you could also validate the form in a seperate php file with no output and then redirect to the "error" and the "another page" ?

I have 2 pages on php, the first page has a small form to accept a
membership number from the user, which checks for membership number in the
DB, if the membership no does not exist, gives an error saying 'you are not
a member click here to become a member now', this bit works fine.

The problem is the following bit 'if the user is a member, i want the user
to be directed to another page.

this is what i did to get the result since header("Location:....") wont
work, as already the form has been printed on the page.

echo'<META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" content="0;URL=member.php">'; but the
problem is that this takes couple of seconds, till then the page is very
much visible which doesnt look good.

Any help on this is much appreciated.


What about holding the form in the buffer, and then dealing with the
buffer before sending the form?
