the header, to be http compliant, should be
Location: http://$HTTP_HOST$PHP_SELF?submit_cat=1&submit_subcat=1&cat_id=$cat_id
also try echoing it instead to see if there is no error. Another thing is that exploder has a stupid
habit of thinking of anything starting with & to be a html entity even without trailing semicomma
(but not sure if this happens to the headers too), and ⊂ just happens to be one.

Ok, I have a problem with the header() redirect function, below is the
part-code/part-pseudocode information. The file that this code is
encapsulated in is a single file named add_item.php. There is no output
before the header() function. Now this is a weird one, but I did some
testing and here is what happens:

If there are no rows returned, redirect browser to the same page with some
needed get variables. The problem is with the submit_cat=1 get variable
attached to the URL-to-be-redirected. When I take this out of the get
string, the script redirects the user just fine when the value of
$num_rows=0. I still need that variable to be sent so when I place the
submit_cat=1 variable back into the get string it takes you to the default
Apache error page entitled, "Internal Server Error". Why is this submit_cat
variable causing me so much trouble?


if (this) {
} elseif (something) {
} elseif (something_else) {

if ($num_rows == 0) {
} elseif ($num_rows != 0) {
$row = $db->fetch_results($query);
