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?

Please advice,
