Though I m not a php guru but still i have been obsessed with a big with header location which often troubles me a lot , I often use html tags in php file as i use dreamweaver as html editor and whenever i want to redirect to some remote url in the middle of the page it always prompt me of a warning that headers already sent , i have researched a lot but didn't find any satisfactory solutions. Though i was able to redirect via javascript href tag but i think thats quite a bug as I also designed sites on ASP and response.redirect works anywhere in a file.

Just want to take in to your considerations.

thanks and regards

This is not a Bug, this is becaus the Headers of your Page MUST been sent BEFORE you output any Text/Html.
Use the following instead:
<script type="text/javascript">
document.location = '';

dude , i m already doin that way , but this is not a permanent solution in PHP , like the way u have in ASP response.redirect which does not give any header sent error there shud be something through which u can redirect even at the middle of the page withour caring for whats sent and whats not.

Anyways thanks for ur reply.

Hi again, I found about the response.redirect that it sends a HTML-Header with a <meta> tag. If you do this AFTER outputting any data (except headers) you will get a document that is NOT valid HTML/XHTML or whatever. Not beautyful. As I think, JS is the only Possibility to make it conform.
