It looks like your naming it as a number, which won't work for PHP. You
want to name all of your checkboxes the same, with a [] on the name to
make the results an array in PHP.

... name="id[]" value="{$row['id']}"

Then, you'll have $_POST['id'][x] as an array in PHP. Only the
checkboxes that were selected will be in the array, from zero to however
many were checked. The value of $_POST['id'][x] will be whatever was in
the value="..." part of the HTML checkbox...
