Ron, is your AJAX request a POST? Is it actually assigning a value to
"submit"? It sounds like that datum is missing because it's not being
Steve is incorrect in suggesting that $_POST['submit'] will be
populated with data from an HTML input of type "submit". To achieve
the effect he is describing, you would need to add name="submit" to
that input. None of the keys of $_POST are magically populated. If
your request doesn't submit a variable named "submit", there will be
no such key in the array.
