I have updated my form:
<form method = "post" name= "account" action= "validated.php" target="_blank"> ... <submit value= "submit" onclick= "validate()" >Submit</submit>
It validates correctly from the validate.js file but still does not open a new page for validated.php
In validated.php just to start:
<p>Welcome <?php echo $_GET["fname"]; ?><br> Your email address is: <?php echo $_GET["email"]; ?> and your birthday is: <?php echo $_GET["bdate"]; ?> </p>
I think the issue is in the html. Any ideas?
