Help - Checkboxes keep showing up as "No" in MySQL Database

Go to solution Solved by AbraCadaver,

Fairly new to PHP, so I am apologizing up front:


Trying to get a couple check boxes to work when going to a MySQL database. They keep coming up "No" no matter what I do:


Form Page:



if($_COOKIE['newsletter']=='No') echo ' <input type="checkbox" name="newsletterselect[]" value="newsletter" /><label class="Text"> Newsletters by Email   </label>';
else echo '<input type="checkbox" name="newsletterselect[]" value="newsletter" checked /><label class="Text"> Newsletters by Email</label><br>';
Processing Code:
foreach ($_POST['newslettersselect'] as $value){
if($value=='newsletters') $newslettersselect[0]='Yes';
setcookie("newsletters", $newslettersselect[0], null, "/", ".WEBSITENAMEHERE.com");


I have noticed that whenever I change the first line of the processing code (currently where it says 'No', that is the answer that shows up. If I change that to "yes", then I get "yes" in the database every time.
