I want to handle this process multiple of times on the same page. So I gave <div id="show"> a unique by appending "show" using php. However, when I submit the form from section 1 or section 2 it updated both show_1 and show_2.

Any suggestions?

<form action="script.php">
<input name="field1" value="123" type="radio" checked="checked" />
<input name="field2" value="456" type="hidden" />
<input name="field3" value="789" type="text" />
<input type="submit" value="post my form" />
</form>
<script>
$("form").submit(function(event) {
   event.preventDefault();
   $.post($(this).attr("action"),$(this).serializeArray(), function(php_msg) { $("#show_4").text(php_msg); });
})
</script>
<div id="show_4"></div>

2nd form on same page:

<form action="script.php">
<input name="field1" value="123" type="radio" checked="checked" />
<input name="field2" value="456" type="hidden" />
<input name="field3" value="789" type="text" />
<input type="submit" value="post my form" />
</form>
<script>
$("form").submit(function(event) {
   event.preventDefault();
   $.post($(this).attr("action"),$(this).serializeArray(), function(php_msg) { $("#show_5").text(php_msg); });
})
</script>
<div id="show_5"></div>
