Using wordpress shortcode to process form values
Posted on 2012-08-28
I am currently developing shortcode to display a list of items on a page. There is a form with a series of listboxes for a user to filter the list that appears. Here is my problem, whenever I check for the values of the "$_POST" variables there are always empty. Does wordpress have some utility that intercepts the form values before they make it to the shortcode. The strange thing is that if I go to the page directly and pass the value along the querystring and change from $_POST to $_GET it works. This is very confusing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
