See my attached code. How do I only insert into the database if the checkbox has been checked?
<label>
      <input name="checkbox_add" type="checkbox" id="checkbox_add" value="1" />
    </label>
    <?php
	$media_id = $row_rs_media['id'];
	$customer_id = $row_rs_customer_selected['id'];
	$user_id = $row_rs_users['id'];
	if($_POST) {
        mysql_query("INSERT INTO bespoke_pricelist (media_id, customer_id, user_id) VALUES ('$media_id', '$customer_id', '$user_id')");
    }
?>

You can use jQuery or a post back for this.  Capture the postback with php, check the value of the checkbox.  Then write an if statement to only insert into the database if the checkbox is checked.

Try:

$value = $_POST["array_checkboxes"];
    if($value=="1")
{
  mysql_query("your INSERT statement");
}

A checked checkbox will have a value of "-1", while an unchecked one will have a value of "0".

You can compare checkbox object value to 0/-1 to know if it's checked or you can check if it's "selected" attribute is equal to "selected" or it's empty.

Sometimes checkbox are difficult to work with.

	$user_id = $row_rs_users['id'];
	
	$mm_value = 0;
    if( !empty($_POST["checkbox_add"]) ) $mm_value = 1;
				  
    if($mm_value=="1")
