Take a look at this:
<input type="checkbox" name="option_val[]" value="1">Option 1
<input type="checkbox" name="option_val[]" value="2">Option 2
<input type="checkbox" name="option_val[]" value="3">Option 3

Look at the names of the checkboxes. If they are all the same and end with
[] as above, PHP will toss them into an array. So in the script that
processes the form you will have access to an array named $option_val. Hope
that helps.

Subject: [PHP-DB] Checkbox/mySQL issues

Here's my problem: I have a form in which there is a question and 5
checkboxes to select from (ex: you can select more than one checkbox)

I need to get each checkbox that is selected to show up when it is inputed
into the mySQL DB.

I can get the first selected checkbox in, but nothing I've done seems to

Any help would be much appreciated :-)
