How is the best way to make this system ?
Call the same php file using parameter transfer ?

Or is the best way to have multipel pages ?

Include my php file for the picture included.

<?php // RAY_EE_login.php
<!DOCTYPE html>

<meta charset="utf-8" />

<link rel="stylesheet" href="default.css">

You can basicly change the submit buttons to Radio buttons with different values for each answer, and you can make simple javascript code that triggers when you click on one of the radio buttons like that:

<script type="text/javascript">
function submitForm(){
<form id="form_id" method="post" action="url to your php page">
     <input type="radio" name="answer" value="answer number 1" onclick="submitForm();"/>

Open in new window

and inside your php code you can basically get the value of the posted radio that way

  echo $_POST["answer"];

Open in new window
