Does the checkout_success.php page still has session values?

Does the checkout_success.php page still has session values?

I added some checkbox fields to the checkout page which I managed to capture into the confirm page and into the db, but the same code will not work in the checkout_success page. Here is the code:

<?php if ((isset($_POST["ReceiveEmailSpecials"]))) { echo "<strong>Yes, I would like to receive specials via Email</strong>"; }?>

I'm just getting acquainted with a little bit of PHP, but just wondering if it's because by the time it redirects to the checkout_success page, the session values are no longer available.

this code:

<?php if ((isset($_POST["ReceiveEmailSpecials"]))) { echo "<strong>Yes, I would like to receive specials via Email</strong>"; }?>




is not referencing a Session variable, it is referencing a POST variable, which is created when the checkout form posts to the confirm page.

post information is only available while the forms action page is loading.

in other words:

The action of the form on the checkout page is to post to the confirm page.


the POST variables only exist while the confirm page is loading, once it is finished loading, the POST is cleared.

Ok, Thanks. I changed it to this and it worked:

<?php if (!empty($_SESSION["ReceiveEmailSpecials"])) { echo "<strong>&#10003; Yes, I would like to receive specials via Email</strong>"; }?>

BUT it doesn't work on the email confirmation. So is the session cleared by the time it shoots the email?

Ok...below I carried over what I posted on the other thread. My original problem was with the confirm page but that's working now. The problem is only with the email.
I've attached the email folder.

I've tried using this code on the email notification WHICH WORKS FINE ON THE CONFIRM PAGE:

<?php if ((isset($_POST["ReceiveEmailSpecials"]))) { echo "<strong>&#10003; Yes, I would like to receive specials via Email</strong>"; }?>


AND this code WHICH WORKS ON THE CHECKOUT_SUCCESS PAGE.

<?php if (!empty($_SESSION["ReceiveEmailSpecials"])) { echo "<strong>&#10003; Yes, I would like to receive specials via Email</strong>"; }?>


But neither works on the email confirmation....I'm not getting the response to show up. What am I doing wrong?



Thanks.

The code is there. Of course I entered it on the Universal Email Dreamweaver edit page but I do see it on the file 'waue_confirm_10' lines 56 to 65.

ok, i see it now, just needed to know which file to look at.


instead of using echo, you need to cast the value to the $MailBody variable.

change:

php:
$MailBody = $MailBody . "  <tr><td>";
 if ((isset($_POST["ReceiveEmailSpecials"]))) { echo "<strong>&#10003; Yes, I would like to receive specials from Jonathan via Email</strong>"; }
$MailBody = $MailBody . "</td></tr>\r\n";
$MailBody = $MailBody . "  <tr><td>";
 if ((isset($_POST["ReceiveDailySapphiresEmail"]))) { echo "<strong>&#10003; Yes, send me Daily Sapphires in Email form</strong>"; }
$MailBody = $MailBody . "</td></tr>\r\n";
$MailBody = $MailBody . "  <tr><td>";
 if ((isset($_POST["SendMeFreeGifts"]))) { echo "<strong>&#10003; Yes, send me the Free Gifts</strong>"; }
$MailBody = $MailBody . "</td></tr>\r\n";
$MailBody = $MailBody . "  <tr><td>";
 if ((isset($_POST["Membership"]))) { echo "<strong>&#10003; I would like to become a member</strong>"; }




to:

php:
$MailBody = $MailBody . "  <tr><td>";
 if ((isset($_POST["ReceiveEmailSpecials"]))) { $MailBody = $MailBody .  "<strong>&#10003; Yes, I would like to receive specials from Jonathan via Email</strong>"; }
$MailBody = $MailBody . "</td></tr>\r\n";
$MailBody = $MailBody . "  <tr><td>";
 if ((isset($_POST["ReceiveDailySapphiresEmail"]))) { $MailBody = $MailBody .  "<strong>&#10003; Yes, send me Daily Sapphires in Email form</strong>"; }
$MailBody = $MailBody . "</td></tr>\r\n";
$MailBody = $MailBody . "  <tr><td>";
 if ((isset($_POST["SendMeFreeGifts"]))) { $MailBody = $MailBody .  "<strong>&#10003; Yes, send me the Free Gifts</strong>"; }
$MailBody = $MailBody . "</td></tr>\r\n";
$MailBody = $MailBody . "  <tr><td>";
 if ((isset($_POST["Membership"]))) { $MailBody = $MailBody .  "<strong>&#10003; I would like to become a member</strong>"; }
