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!

Hello joomla_php!

Is this the only technique available to me? Does it matter which module position I use in the article? see http://zclientdev.net/maze/free-trial.html

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!
