Challenge Task 3 of 4

Next, we need the flavor selected in the dropdown to be submitted to this process.php file. We need to be able to access it in the "flavor" element of the $_POST array, like this: $_POST["flavor"]. Change the HTML so that the value for "flavor" is submitted to the process.php file. (Hint. An "id" attribute on a form input can be used by JavaScript and CSS but is not passed through the form submission.)

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

<input type ="submit" value = "send"

<?php var_dump($_POST); ?>

For starters, you should close the html elements.

<form method = "post" action = "process.php">
<input type ="text" name="flavor">
<input type ="submit" value = "send">
<?php var_dump($_POST); ?>
