I am not sure if it is possible to cut it down two only two submits,
I just went online and found this,
If I could change this function to using the radio button, and

statements with PHP , do you think this is a good idea?
Anyway, I found this method is kind of ugly for the time being, but
less daunting with what I was doing before. Thanks.
The example you provided above is very basic and I think what you
want is far more complex.
I realize that it's hard to convey what it is that you actually want
because you don't know all that can be done -- and the number of
possibilities of how to organize controls is far too vast for me to
For example, here's another example of what can be done:
But I know this doesn't fully solve your problem but it comes closer
than the example you provided above.
Sometimes it's best to "story-board" what you want so that both you
and to whom you're asking questions can have a better idea of the
For example, let's say you want to gather data from a user -- in
option A, the user is asked Y/N. If the user answers N, then the user
is sent to option B. If the user answers Y, then the user is sent to
option C. In option B the user is presented with... and Option C the
user is presented with... and so on. -- I'm sure you get the idea.
So, if you want to continue with this, please prepare a "story-board"
and present your problem again.
