I've been making changes to a form I've been working on. I added the jquery-validation plugin for client side validation. Now my $_POST array is empty when it gets to my php script. I was messing around with echo statements and found that if I just used $ plus the field name from the form it has the value.
echo 'requester_name: '. $_POST['requester_name'] ."<br />";
echo 'requester_name: '.$requester_name."<br />";
The first is blank and the next one somehow has the value...
Have I just not had enough caffeine yet this morning? What is happening here?
