Re: how should i process form data with the skeleton plugin for an edit screen
ok i’ll try to explain what i did.
when you install the plugin in its original form is it called bp-example so i will stick to that naming convention.
under wp-content/plugins you have the folder called bp-example with all the files in it (class, templatetags etc).
under wp-content/plugins you also have a file called bp-example.php
(if you put these two in place you can activate the bp-example plugin without making any changes).
anyways, I created my form inside bp-example.php
my form started with something like that:
<form id=”form1″ name=”form1″ action=”<?php bp_example_do_something() ?>” method=”post”>
rest of form is here etc
later i have the submit button to submit the form etc.
once you submit the form it calls the function in the action. this function is in bp-example-temlatetags.php that is in the bp-example folder.
inside this function you can use the $_POST and do whatever you want with your POST variables.
hope this helps.
