    Post data to PHP page instructions.

    Asked by akotoulas on November 12, 2011 at 09:39 PM


    I followed the instructions on this page:


    Then I created a very simple HTML page with a simple form inserted:


    and then I created a simple php page:


    and the result looks like this:

    Array ( [submission_id] => 186960887671699622 [formID] => 13144833136 [ip] => [fullname4] => Array ( [0] => Art [1] => ) )

    Am I missing something? I am not a programmer but I thought I did it right. What am I missing?

    Thank you.

    You're not missing anything.  That's how it really looks like as POST data submissions are submitted in array format.  May we know what you're planning to do with your post data?

    Using this post data requires you to have some basic knowledge with either Javascript or any server -side programming language such as PHP, ASP, Java, Perl, etc.  You can learn some basics on how to utilize this post data using PHP and MySQL from this guide
