Three fundemental flaws:
1) single quotes in PHP denote a litteral string so $thepage will not be
2) the first single quote before $thepage will end the echo statement
anything after that is a parse error
3) the proper javascript syntax to redirect to a url within the active
window is window.location.href="";
