example php file with

<!DOCTYPE html>
        <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
        <meta name="viewport" id="viewport" content="target-densitydpi=high-dpi,initial-scale=1.0,user-scalable=no" />
        <title>Document Title</title>
        $CurrentSent = FALSE;
        $test = "";
        if (isset($_POST['submit1'])) {
            $CurrentSent = TRUE;

        if (isset($_POST['submit2'])) {
            $CurrentSent = TRUE;

        if (isset($_POST['submit3'])) {
            $CurrentSent = TRUE;

        if ($CurrentSent) {
            foreach ($_POST as $IndexName => $IndexNameValue) {
                echo $IndexName . ' : ' . $IndexNameValue . '<br>';
            echo '<hr>';
        <form name="form1" action="#" method="POST">
            <input type="text" name="input1" value="Input#1" />
            <input type="submit" value="Submit#1" name="submit1" />
        <form name="form2" action="#" method="POST">
            <input type="text" name="input2" value="Input#2" />
            <input type="submit" value="Submit#2" name="submit2" />
        <form name="form3" action="#" method="POST">
            <input type="text" name="input1" value="Input#3" />
            <input type="submit" value="Submit#3" name="submit1" />


Even though form1 and form3 have exactly the same input name attributes, by submitting from specific individual form, you will only get that specific form inputs added to $_POST array.
