    I have been going crazy for two hours trying to get this to work. I have a form, it works fine. After I submit the form, I want to display a success message and hide the form. Right now, after pushing the submit button, the form goes away, the success message displays for the blink of an eye and then the contact page shows normally. That is all fine, I just need the success message to stay up a bit longer.

    if (isset($_POST)) {

    $contactSubject = "";
    $from = "";
    $sendEmail = "";

    $contactName = strip_tags($_POST);
    $subject = strip_tags($_POST);
    $email = $_POST;
    $messages = strip_tags($_POST);
    //check to see if the variables are empty, if they are, just exit
    $validation = true;

    if (empty($contactName) || empty($email) || empty($messages)) {
    $validation = false;
    } else {
    $validation = true;

    if($validation == true){
    $contact = "Contact Name: $contactName n";
    $contact .= "Email: $email n";
    $contact .= "Subject: $subject n";
    $contact .= "Message: $messages n";

    $subject = $contactSubject;
    $headers = 'From: ' . $from . "rn" .
    'Reply-To: ' . $sendEmail . "rn" .
    'X-Mailer: PHP/' . phpversion();

    $recipient = $sendEmail;

    mail($recipient, $subject, $contact, $headers);


    Your message has been sent

    The jqyery to run the success message is at the bottom of the code


    Here, try this:

    You might wanna check your message before displaying the success message.


    Using jQuery to display a success message is a bad design as how does your client side code know if the email was sent successfully?

    What you need to be doing is using your PHP script to validate the data and check if the email got sent successfully and display a message based on the result.
