Including files for 'thank you' message  (See more user questions)

Hi .

What you need to know is where to include your files in the script code. If
using a template for the thank you message, locate this line of code in the

print $html_output;

Above it, include your header, and below it include your footer, for


print $html_output;


Note that the above code is within PHP opening and closing tags, so you
don't need to use <?php ?> for every line of code.

Alternatively, if you just want to make a fixed "thank you" message but
include a header and footer, you can use the default "thank you" message
HTML in the script, and put your includes either side of it, like so:

<?php include('header.php'); ?>

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">



<?php include('footer.php'); ?>

You will notice in this case, the PHP lines have opening and closing PHP
tags. This is because they are mixed with HTML. I have a brief tutorial
about editing PHP code, here:

I should say, if you are using includes and a template, you are bound to
need to code the template in accordance with your existing files.

Any questions, just let me know.

Best wishes.
