How to solve undefined index error in PHP: $ _GET, $ _POST

$ _POST or $ _GET are two special PHP functions that are used to get variables from a user-filled form. While using these functions, a user may encounter an error, stating that there is an undefined index. This error can be avoided with the help of PHP isset ().

N.B. Undefined index is a minor error and is, therefore, not usually notified by default. Still, this depends on the server's configuration. With the help of the error_reporting function, the type of error reported can be changed.

How to fix undefined index error in PHP?

To avoid this error when using the $ _POST or $ _GET variables, simply test whether the table's fields were initialized with the function isset ().

// Before using $_POST['value']    
if (isset($_POST['value']))    
          // Instructions if $_POST['value'] exist    

This should resolve the Undefined index PHP error.
