Changing ID Chosen Being dropdown PHP

I have a script for the forum. By default, users can only post if it has opened the site to determine the parent first. For example domain.com/new.php?parent=3

Here I am trying to modify using the dropdown. For example: OPTION 1 (value1) OPTION 2 (value2) OPTION 3 (value3)

I add $parent=$_POST['parent']; following the example of the $title=$_POST['title']; But always failed.

Is there a solution?


//This page let users create new topics
    $id = intval($_GET['parent']);
    $dn1 = mysql_fetch_array(mysql_query('select count(c.id) as nb1, c.name from categories as c where c.id="'.$id.'"'));

$nb_new_pm = $nb_new_pm['nb_new_pm'];

There is no input element with the name parent in the form, therefore $_POST['parent'] will not be set. Verify by dumping $_POST after submit: var_dump($_POST).

You could reuse the $id variable which holds the $_GET['parent'] value.

As it has been mentioned in the comments:

Make sure to sanitize all input values before stating SQL queries to prevent SQL injection attacks!
