Default POST method not working

Dear Experts,

I have created a form to print a value name field.

if(isset($_GET['submit'])) {


    print("<br>not submitted");

I'm using GET method here, but I dont want to use GET method but want to use POST method instead.

When changed to POST method it is giving error Undefined index

register_globals is set to OFF
request_method is set to GET

How do I change the request method to POST?

Please help.

Send a message via AIM to Moharo

check if you have specified the submit method in your form (<form method="post" action="any.php">)

then rewrite the code to:

if(isset($_POST["submit"]) && isset ($_POST["name"])) {


else print ("<br>not submitted");

i think this should work


the genuine genius
