Hello is there a way to use $_REQUEST function in php to get form values. I am trying to do so but it's not picking up data. print_r($_POST) only gives an array and does not put data in variables that I can use to update DB. Please advise.

Using print_r($_POST) in your php page will show you the array's key and the value which you can assign to variables. For example, if your form outputs this:
eMail = > firstname.lastname@example.org
You can get the value of this key using $_POST['eMail'] then assign it to a variable, for example:
$myDb_eMail = $_POST['eMail'];
You may learn more about POST method and arrays by visiting the official PHP manual.
