    print_r($POST) showing a blank array

    Asked by lasercorp on March 16, 2016 at 11:42 PM


    I am trying to post to a mysql database and I redirected my thank you page to a php page with  print_r($_POST); to print out the array for the mysql submission.


    however, as seen in the attached image, the print out is blank.


    I have done this many times before with no issues.

    You may check out this guide to see how to send POST data to a custom Thank You page. Send POST Data From JotForm Using PHP in Custom Thank You Page. This may help us identify why the POST is showing a blank array.

    Then to send the submission to your MySQL database, simply follow this guide: How to send Submissions to Your MySQL Database Using PHP

    If the issue persists, please send us the php code so we can further investigate.
