Adding "true" only makes print_r return the output, not display it. If you
use "true", you would want to do it as so:

$string - print_r($_POST,true);

!empty($_POST) would work just as well, to save some space.

And I'm assuming the problem is that he's checking boxes but nothing is
showing up there, which leads back to my original request of either
pastebin[1] code or to be able to take a look at it.

I'm thinking your script is overwriting the POST variable elsewhere.
