i am using a self submitting for using php
<form action="<?php echo $_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]; ?>" method="POST"
the registration page starts with a lot of terms and other details
about the registration and then the form fields for the
user to fill the registration page. i have used php to validate the
form, presently when a user clicks the submit button and
if there are any validateions that need to be displayed to the user,
then the user has to scroll from the top of the page all
the way till they see the form elements with the validation message
ex= Please enter your phone number.
my question is, as in html with relative linking ex
<a href="#link1"> click here</a>
<a name="link1"> </a>
the page can be moved to an exact location, can this be done more or
less close to this relative linking using php so that
the user need not scroll from the top of the page to see the
NOTE = since i am using a self submitting form just before the first
form element i have created a blank table row and in
this table row the php validation message would appear if the user
missed out some information. due to this the user has to
scroll from the top of the page to see the php generated validation
message. if i use the same php validation at the very top
of the page the error message will be at the top and the form fields
at the bottom and the user will have to scroll up and
down to read the validation message.
