    Hello and thank you for your response.

    I tried the method in the article but I cannot even get a print_r of the $_POST data. I tried doing it to a thank you page: http://citecardealers.com/RegistrationReceived.php and also tried to to the page the form resides on: http://citecardealers.com/RegTest.php. Neither got me the $_POST data. It just shows an empty array.

    Hello Bintelli,

    I did check your form "citEcar Dealers - Warranty Registration" and found that your have not enabled the Send POST data preferences. Please check the screenshot below:


    Form should be configured to send the post data before you can read it in your thank you page. You may like to take a look at the following guide which should help you:
