It has to do with the magic variables setting. Try using $_REQUEST and $_REQUEST instead.

It's better if you leave it off . Imagine how easy is for someone to hack your code .This is the reason why the developers set the register_globals off by default from php 4.2 . Instead u can use the EGPCS values ( Enviroment , Get , Post , Cookies , Server ) it's much safer
