Ok, so I have a form that is sending me arrays in the POST array. I am trying to read it like so:
$day = $this->input->post("days");
This does not work. PHP says "unexpected '['". Why does this not work?
I fixed it by doing it this way:
$days = $this->input->post("days"); $day = $days;
I fixed my problem, I'm just curious as to why the 1st way didn't work.
