Sure there is!

1. Find the toolbar on the left side of the screen.
2. Hover over the icons to display tooltips - find the "Snippets" icon (4th from bottom).
3. Click it, then choose "Snippets Panel" from the drop down menu.
4. A panel appears in the right-hand pane. Using the buttons at the botton of the panel, create a folder called "PHP".
5. With that folder selected, choose the "New Snippet" button from the base of the pane.
6. A box will appear. Name the snippet "$_POST" and type a useful description.
7. Choose "Wrap Selected" then in the "Before" box, type (without quotes) "$_POST['" and in the "After" box, type "']".
8. Leave the final option as "Code" and click OK.
9. Repeat for $_GET.
10. Now, whenever you want to insert them, highlight the code you want it around and just click it in the Snippets pane.

Hope this helps!

Hi avo42,

There are other ways to do what you ask.  Ale_jrb's answer is also correct, and easier, but this function is already built into DW.

From the Insert Panel, select the PHP tab.  The first two icons should be for Form variables ($_POST) and URL variables ($_GET).  Clicking either icon will insert:

<?php $_POST['']; ?> or <?php $_GET['']; ?>

The problem is that the <?php ?> tags also come in even if the code is already in a php declaration.

You could also modify the PHP tag library to insert these codes, but that's more difficult than just making snippets.
