After submitting a form, the page refresh with a thank you message. So how can I redirect that page to a different url after successfully submitting the form.

Current Form codes are as following:

<form id="contactCompanyFrm" name="contactCompanyFrm" action="<?php echo JRoute::_('index.php?option=com_jbusinessdirectory') ?>" method="post">
## form fields
<?php echo JHTML::_( 'form.token' ); ?>
<input type='hidden' name='task' id="task" value='companies.contactCompany'/>
<input type="hidden" name="companyId" id="companyId" value="" />

Controller page:

class JBusinessDirectoryControllerCompanies extends JControllerLegacy
function contactCompany(){
    $appSettings = JBusinessUtil::getInstance()->getApplicationSettings();
    $model = $this->getModel('companies');

    $data = JRequest::get( 'post' );
    $companyId = JRequest::getVar('companyId');
    $contactId = JRequest::getVar('contactId');
    $company = $model->getPlainCompany($companyId);

    $data['contact_id'] = $contactId;

    $result = $model->contactCompany($data);

        $this->setMessage(JText::_('ABC Good'));
        $this->setMessage(JText::_('XYZ Bad'));

  • You can give your url in $this->setRedirect(JRoute::_($yourUrl)); So you have to replace the JBusinessUtil::getCompanyLink($company)) with your url. – Sudhir Sapkal Jun 12 '18 at 5:27
