PHP Build a Simple PHP Application Integrating with PayPal HTML Forms

Am I supposed to export $_POST["flavor"] to process.php? If so how?

Where do I look for solutions?

form.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <title>Ye Olde Ice Cream Shoppe</title>
</head>
<body>

    <p>Your order has been created. What flavor of ice cream would you like to add to it?</p>

    <form Method= "POST" Action= "process.php">

        <label for="flavor">Flavor</label>
        <select id="flavor" name="flavor">
            <option value="">&#8212; Select &#8212;</option>
            <option value="Vanilla">Vanilla</option>
            <option value="Chocolate">Chocolate</option>
            <option value="Strawberry">Strawberry</option>
            <option value="Cookie Dough">Cookie Dough</option>
        </select>

        <input type="submit" value="Update Order">

        <ul>
            <li>
                <?php 
                        echo $_POST["flavor"]; 

                ?>
        </li>
    </ul>   


    </form>

</body>
</html>

Samuel,

Don't capitalize your attributes or their values, and you'll pass this task.

You have:

<form Method="POST" Action="process.php">

You want:

<form method="post" action="process.php">

Erik

Thanks!
