So, the redirect at the top proved useful once I realised what was going on! I am assuming that the redirect destination page is the form?

There are no values in the checkbox input fields. If you include value="gorilla" (or whatever) in the form input field then that is the value that you will get if it is checked. If it is not checked you won't get any value.

hope this helps ...

Edit ... hang on ... I've looked again ... values are there now! Was I mistaken or did you just figure it out? :-)
