    Thank you page is not receiving $_POST data

    Asked by celtsoc on December 31, 2015 at 12:58 PM

    Per the subject line, it appears that my custom thank you page is not receiving the $_POST data from my form.


    The thank you page is an html file that includes  php code to update a mySQL database.  At the start of the php code, I print out the contents of $_POST and they are empty.


    What could be causing this?

    This is in my Submit A Listing from in the celticsociety account

    I've discovered the reason for this, I think. If I change the thank you page link to be a php file, everything works.  It would be good if this was clarified in your article about how to access a database with the info from a form.
