If a heckbox is left blank, then the webserver does not pass it's name/value pair on to the PHP processor.
This means that if you have <input type=checkbox name=foo> And the box is not checked, then when your script recieves the form, $_POST['foo'] will not be available. So to test for it, use isset($_POST['foo']) to see if they checked it.
