Just a minor issue!

Good day Codeigniter community,

I am simply another new member that discovered the potential of this frameworks not so long ago and is now 'abusing' it in his every project, haha.

Anyway I would like to hear some opinions about something I want to make.

So first thing first, I started on making a registration/signup system. I have a register controller and a function called validateRegistration in it. When the user presses the register button all of his information from the input fields goes through that function obviously. At the end I have an if/else statement to check the results of my form_validation check.

Now if I use the $this->load->view('register'); I can display the valiation errors on the page and let the user try again. But the validateRegistration still remains in the URL bar. I tried using the redirect function in the if(not) but it doesn't display the validation errors.

So is there any way I can make it work so that it displays the validation errors and the clean url without the function name segment added to it?

Thanks in advance.



EDIT: If I posted this in the wrong section I am sorry and I gladly ask a moderator to move it to the right section.

You should be able to do it with session flash data then when you are on the registration page after the redirect see if it exists.
check validation
$this->session->set_flashdata('error_message', 'some_value');

if($this->session->flashdata('error_message')) {
  echo $this->session->flashdata('error_message');

or you could do it in one function like

function register() {
   if($this->input->post('submit') !== FALSE) { //user tried registering
            if($this->form_validation->run() === FALSE) {
                     Display errors
               } else {
                    Add user info to database
                    Send success message
