You can have your for loop process the data in the array (replace POST
with GET as needed), and set up the logic in the form handle to either
check for errors (I usually use an error array, keys being error type,
and values being message, such as $error["invalid_character_length"] =
"You need to supply a password with a length greater than 8
characters), or have the for loop do it's own directing.

If the data being posted is being placed in post is either both an
array or a string (say post['affiliate'] is a string, post['food'] is
an array), all you have to do is a simple is_array check on the key,
and determine where you need to go from there.

Be glad to offer more help if needed.
