PHP Video: Processing Forms with PHP – part 2

August 29, 2006

PHP Video Tutorial

Part two of my beginners video tutorials on how to use PHP to process HTML forms.

Video: PHP and forms video tutorial

Having covered the basics of forms in the first video, I now jump into the actual PHP code and introduce (for the first time) a built-in PHP construct called ‘Super Globals’.

We learn that Super Globals are associative arrays (that they hold lots of useful information,) that are automatically created by the PHP engine.

In this case we look at the three super globals that hold form data:

  • $_POST
  • $_GET
