How do I use PHP code inside a Joomla 1.5 article?

I have the following code inside a Joomla article that contains a web form. I am submitting the form to itself using a POST method. However I believe the PHP code is never checked because the echo statement does not appear on the page.

if (array_key_exists('_submit_check', $_POST)) {

echo "inside if statement";
include_once "/maze/custom/myform.php";

Open in new window

Can one of the experts please help me get this form to execute properly?

Thank you!

No there are lots of choices, that happens to be my favorite.
You can include it at any module position.
Just make sure your php is correct!
