        <div class="span3">
                    <form method="post" action="">
                        <div class="controls controls-row">
                        <input id="name" name="name" type="text" class="span3" placeholder="Name">
                        <div class="controls controls-row">
                        <input id="email" name="email" type="email" class="span3" placeholder="Email address">

                        <div class="controls">
                        <button id="contact-submit" type="submit" class="btn btn-primary input-medium pull-right">Send</button>

    here is php

            // check for form submission - if it doesn't exist then send back to contact form  
            if (!isset($_POST["save"]) || $_POST["save"] != "contact") {  
                header("Location:"); exit;  
            // get the posted data  
            $name = $_POST["contact_name"];  
            $email_address = $_POST["contact_email"];  
            $message = $_POST["contact_message"];  
            // check that a name was entered  
            if (empty ($name))  
                $error = "You must enter your name.";  
            // check that an email address was entered  
            elseif (empty ($email_address))   
                $error = "You must enter your email address.";  
            // check for a valid email address  
            elseif (!preg_match("/^[_a-z0-9-]+(\.[_a-z0-9-]+)*@[a-z0-9-]+(\.[a-z0-9-]+)*(\.[a-z]{2,3})$/", $email_address))  
                $error = "You must enter a valid email address.";  
            // check that a message was entered  
            elseif (empty ($message))  
                $error = "You must enter a message.";  
            // check if an error was found - if there was, send the user back to the form  
            if (isset($error)) {  
                header("Location: contact-form.php?e=".urlencode($error)); exit;  
            // write the email content  
            $email_content = "Name: $name\n";  
            $email_content .= "Email Address: $email_address\n";  
            $email_content .= "Message:\n\n$message";  
            // send the email  
            mail ("[email protected]", "New Contact Message", $email_content);  
            // send the user back to the form  
            header("Location:".urlencode("Thank you for your message.")); exit;  

    Will not pick up the location in php file i am using bootstrap


    Oh ok I thought it might work in my test folder.

    Also if I have it in footer do I need to put footer where it says header. and the if I have a separate contact page.

    Is there any way to get it to work on a sub folder for testing purposes.

    bootstrap its all new to me. staring to pick skill of bootstrap up its a lot easier than some others.
