Does PHP have simple buttons to redirect users to another page?
In ASP.net, I just create a link button that redirects the user to the next page.
I haven't found anything like this yet in PHP. (I am very new... just a few days into PHP now.)
Suppose I have a main page to my site that directs users to a second level page where they can join or a different second level page where they can do a search.
What's the best way to do this in PHP? Like I said, with ASP.net, I would've just created two LinkButtons.
Not sure even where PHP comes into the picture here. Isn't that just an HTML issue, or is there more to the question than meets the eye here? Many PHP frameworks or stand-alone 3rd party PHP classes have functions for creating HTML elements, which might be the sort of thing you're used to within the ASP.NET framework, but it's not part of the core PHP language.

PHP is not like this. My understanding (and someone correct me if I'm wrong) is that PHP comprises a programming language called PHP and the PHP runtime which takes your PHP scripts and compiles them into byte code and then runs that code for you, either inside an apache module or perhaps from the command line.
You might be able to find some kind of IDE for developing PHP that offers you that kind of fully integrated convenience, but I don't know of any.
