I want to apologize to you all. I have mentioned two things on the same basket, but it was not appropriate. Since a confirmation page is not the same thing as a success page.
Let's forget about the confirmation page, since it's not required. I'm now understanding that even if the form is submitted to self, we can still use a redirect to a "success_message_page.php". However, we must do this redirect, AFTER the form has submitted to himself. It's the only thing that we have to pay attention here, correct? Since we are not dealing with a confirmation page, or a multi-step form, the hidden field isn't necessary. It's this correct assumptions?
