Hey guys i have got some PHP Code that i use its for an order page. When i place an order on my form it gets the Customer Information. But when i try to put an order in for the checkbox items it only gets the 1st item that is clicked in the checkbox and does not get the quantity.


Is there anything that i am doing wrong in my code?

form action="localhost" method="post">



        <br />

Has this ever worked for you? The html appears seriously flawed to me. What's with all the closing </div> tags, but no starting ones? And the <label> tags all pointing at the same id?

Anyway, to receive the values from multiple checkboxes with the same group, you need to assign your name= attribute to an array. Try:


instead. Then process $_POST['item'] as an array of values.
PS - If you're posting here you should be using:
        ini_set('display_errors', '1');

at the top of ALL php code while you develop it!
