from what i see i should say you are correct Nan. However it does again runs the index.php file not contact.php

The issue is that I am inserting the contact.php inside index.php while the action inside the contact.php
is $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];  this makes the index.php to run instead of contact.php and as i mentioned inserting contact.php
instead of  $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; only outputs content of contact.php instead of processing it.
