PHP Build a Simple PHP Application Integrating with PayPal HTML Forms


The code below contains a simple HTML form. It looks fine in the browser, but it does not send the information to the server. In this code challenge, we’ll make a few modifications so that it will. First, we need the data submitted to a process.php file in the same folder as this form.html. What do we need to add to the HTML? (Hint: we need to add one attribute to an existing HTML element.)

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Ye Olde Ice Cream Shoppe</title>

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


        <label for="flavor">Flavor</label>
        <select id="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>

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

Hi Raul,

In this case you are going to want to look at the form action attribute: http://www.w3schools.com/tags/att_form_action.asp

I don't want to give the answer away, but I am confident that after you review the form action attribute you will have the answer! Post back if you need any further help.
