Multiple Selections with checkboxes
I need to have a series of options that can be selected with checkboxes. I suspect that in the future I'm going to need to add/delete/modify the number of these checkboxes.
Can you suggest a better method of handling this than adding a field in my DB to match each checkbox on the form? I mean, if I have to change the number of check boxes down the road, I will have to recode the form and add/delete fields from the DB structure. Is there a method for retrieving an array of the checkbox results for example?
ThanksOf all the things I've lost in my life time, my mind is the one I miss the most!

you can make one field called checkboxes (or whatever) and fill it with
Then in the php if you save the field in the $str var:Code:one|two|three|four
$checkboxes = explode('|', $str);
echo($checkboxes); // 'one'
echo($checkboxes); // 'four'
Then when you get a new checkbox you can add it on the end of that.
Why not thank me?
