I have some code where the user inputs some stuff and then i would like it to get added to a database. The problem is dont know how to make it so that it only adds to the database when the user has submited it?

Any ideas ?

Hi newbie 123 and welcome to daniweb

All you need to do is use $_POST to test if the form has been set in the URL.

This would be your form:

<form action='?send=true' method='POST'>
<input type='text' name='whatever'>

When this form is clicked the user is sent to the same page but


is echoed in the URL.

You can then test if it is set by doing the following:

if (isset ($_POST['send'])) {

Hope all this helps
And if you need any help just post :)
