FORM: Rendering textarea tag in PHP

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I'm new to WEB design coding.

Trying to following some video from the site.

 

Why I cannot display text entered in the html form in PHP?

I can successfully display other tags in the same PHP file.

The code I'm using is the following:

 

 

Comments:

 

 

...

The text entered in the text box and submitted. The form_response.php file handles properly other tags but not the textarea tag.

 

in the form_response.php file the following code gets NULL in the $comments variable.

$comments = $_REQUEST['comments'];

 

Any help is appreciated.

what's up with the colons at the name? name:="comments"

skip those and it will work, name="comments"

 

The data from the textarea will then be stored in $_POST['comments'] and you can access it through $_REQUEST['comments'] as well as you just tried.
