As to your code, you do not change the value of the checkbox. And, in this case the value really isn't important. The checkbox should use the same value and you should check/uncheck it based upon the saved data. Also, you should save the value as a numeric equivalent of a Boolean, i.e. 0 (false) or 1 (true).



visible: <input type="checkbox" name="inp_vis" value="visible" <?php echo if ($row['vis']) "checked='checked'"; ?>>
