Checkbox group not writing to database

Checkbox group not writing to database

I have created a form using CSS form builder. It is made up of a few radio groups and a few checkbox groups. The information is written to a database when the form is submitted. All the radio group information is correctly written to the database. I am having a problem with the checkbox groups as the information is not stored to the database.
multiple_cb.php
Please help me with detailed fix.

A checkbox group creates an array of the values that where selected.

The array needs to be converted to a comma separated list before is can be inserted to the database.

add the following code at line 1 of your page:

php:
<?php

if($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST")     {
    foreach(
$_POST as $key => $val) {
        if(
is_array($_POST[$key])) $_POST[$key] = implode(", "$_POST[$key]);     
    }
}
?>




this uses the implose function to convert the array to a comma separated list.
