The script I am working on is rather complicated but I do know it processes after clicking save,  The thing is, it normally scans for issues and changes and edits them, However, I want it to display an error, and then it would head back to the original page. Something like, for example, in php/javascript:

echo "<script>alert('mailto: href links cannot be a personal email address. Please contact us for additional info');</script>";
header("Location: http://linkhere.com");


What is ending up happening is the header is processed and the alert never gets displayed. Is there a way to HALT continuation of the script until I hit OK easily?

Why are you using header?
Normally your are not allowed call header() after an echo

Change your code as follows

echo "<script>alert('mailto: href links cannot be a personal email address. Please contact us for additional info');document.location.href='http://linkhere.com';</script>";
