I have a working php contact form:

$msg = "";
use PHPMailer\PHPMailer\PHPMailer;
include_once "PHPMailer/PHPMailer.php";
include_once "PHPMailer/Exception.php";
include_once "PHPMailer/SMTP.php";

if (isset($_POST['submit'])) {
$subject = $_POST['subject'];
$email = $_POST['email'];
$message = $_POST['message'];

$mail = new PHPMailer();

//if we want to send via SMTP
$mail->Host = "";
$mail->SMTPAuth = true;
$mail->Username = "email";
$mail->Password = "password";
$mail->SMTPSecure = "ssl"; //TLS
$mail->Port = 465; //587

$mail->Subject = $subject;
$mail->Body = $message;

if ($mail->send())
echo "<h1>Sent Successfully! Thank you"." ".$name.", We will contact you shortly!</h1></br>
Use the 'back' arrow to go back to the main page...";
echo "Something went wrong!";

The confirmation message is echoed out to a new, white page. Still getting to grips with php, but I cannot work out how to get the confirmation message to appear above the form instead of appearing on a new page.

This is the form's code

<form method="post" action="contact.php" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<input name="subject" placeholder="Subject..."><br>
<input name="email" type="email" placeholder="Email..."><br>
<textarea placeholder="Message..." name="message"></textarea><br>
<input name="submit" type="submit" value="Send Email">

Any ideas?

Hope someone can help.
