On your 'post' page, make sure you're referencing the variables via the $_POST[''] superglobal.


print("Name: ".$_POST['name']."<br />");

What your problem looks like is that you're not putting the subtotal, shipping and final total as "hidden" variables in the form that posts to the final page.  Be sure you do this within the <form> tags.

<input id="subtotal" name="subtotal" type="hidden" value="<?=$subtotal;?>" />


<input id="subtotal" name="subtotal" type="hidden" value="<?php echo $subtotal; ?>" />

we need the source code (the original schoolorderform.php) to be able to do anything really

Free Tool: ZipGrep

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way to say thank you for being a part of the community.

It´s pretty hard for ya to just trow a problem with this complexity and just expect any answer (that is not the source code page, you have to create a phps page or put a <pre> I think between the start and the end of your code </pre>).... but I will help you with the logic that is the first step...

You have to post to the same page and do a error check....

then once you have that working do a...

//or if(!$_POST['navy']){     whatever works best...
if ($_POST['navy']){          
$navyvalue = '10';
$totalvalue = '10';
that is the source code, you just have to do view source.. copy this to IE: view-source:

This form seems to be working now. Do you still need help?
My solution provided the proper method on how to print out any $_POST vars after the form submission.
