PHP Version: 4CVS-2002-11-14 OS: Linux

Following form does not work in PHP_4_3 from CVS.

<?php print_r($_POST);?>
<form name="Master" action="./post.php" method="post" 
enctype="multipart/form-data" >
<input type="test" name="hello" value="world"> 
<input type="submit">
<?php phpinfo();?>

enctype="application/x-www-form-urlencoded" does work.

maybe it has something to do with the recent changes in the POST area.

"does not work" = $_POST is empty...

 [2002-11-14 18:16 UTC]
I can't reproduce this problem even with mbstring...

  <input type="test" name="hello" value="world"> 

Is this a typo for either [type="hidden"] or [type="text"]?

I found the source of the error. 

If "always_populate_raw_post_data" is set to On (and enctype="multipart/form-data"), then $_POST is empty. If Off, then it has the correct values .

In 4.2 it did work with always_... = On. I know hartmut was working on this stuff and I'm not sure if this is a real bug, or if it's a known "bug". But at least, there should be some warning somewhere about that.

Yes, hartmut fixed it already couple of days ago.

I have already "always_populate_raw_post_data" in Off and I still having problem with $POST when I use "enctye='multipart/form-data'"
Also I tried "always_populate_raw_post_data" in On and I had the same problem.

Could someone give a solution at last to this problem.

Thank you
