Here is where I need help, on the form have a list of options in the form of checkboxes Buttons BUT when the form is sent back onlu one of the options is listed. below is the code for a test form, and this works in the same way. What am I doing wrong.

make your checkboxes an array

<input type="checkbox" name="test[]" value="Taxi" id="test_4" />

once they're stored on array you can easily traverse using foreach()

foreach($_POST['test'] as $index => $val){
echo "test[".$index."]=".$val; // just testing the value
}
