My continuing series of noobie questions:

My form, the same one I was dealing with before, isn't displaying flash data until after I refresh the page manually.

Put in fake info. Then after you submit it, hit submit again. THEN the flash message shows up.

Controller excerpt:
$this->session->set_flashdata('notice', 'Your request was processed. Thanks for joining the movement!');

Line of out the View:
<p>&lt;?php echo $this->session->flashdata('notice'); ?&gt;</p>

My guess is that there is nothing to trigger a new "page" so to speak, by slipping back into index. I also notice that the 2nd and 3rd segment remain in the URI, which confuses me.

Also, I'd like to just not have those para tags unless there is a flash message. Is there an 'isset' or something like that, to determine if there is a flash message?

I figured it out. I needed a redirect. That fired everything properly. See, I'm getting this, slowly.
