    I am unsure how to do something.
    I have a select menu on a form, (named "state") and it has the "MULTIPLE" attribute assigned.

    My problem is that when I submit the form to my PHP script, the $state variable only has the value for one of the the states selected. I was expecting $state to be an array, but its not.

    How do you receive all of the options selected?

    Thanks for your help.

    Give the select the name "state[]"

    That will give you an array.
