Yup it's working perfectly. $_GET['list'] overwrites $_GET['list'] overwrites $_GET['list']. You will only ever see the last one. Instead add square brackets to each variable name.. http://awebsite.net/formlist.php?list=2&list=3&list=99 Now $_GET['list'] is an array wth three elements. echo $_GET['list']; // prints 2 echo $_GET['list']; // prints 3 echo $_GET['list']; // prints 99 To do this within your multi-select form field add the square brackets to the field name... <select name="list" select-multi> <option></option> <option></option> <option></option> </select> In the future you might consider performing a search on Google Groups prior to posting on the list. 9 out of 10 times you'll find the answer you're looking for.
