[resolved] [closed] trying to save multiple select fields using update_options (2 posts)

    Displaying a list of all pages in a select field. I want multiple pages to be able to be selected. I have been reading and reading, but still don't seem to get how this works.

    I can get the selected fields to echo out, but they don't seem to be saving, i.e. when page is reloaded the selections are gone.

    the fields:

    <select id="exclude_page_from_cookies" name="exclude_page_from_cookies[]" multiple="multiple">
    			<?php
    
    			$pages = get_pages();
    			foreach ( $pages as $page ) {
    				$title = $page->post_title;
    				$id    = $page->id;
    				?>
    
    				<option id="<?php echo $id; ?>" value="<?php echo $title ?>" <?php selected( $title ); ?> >
    					<?php echo $title;?>
    				</option>
    			<?php
    			}
    			?>
    		</select>

    The save

    if ( isset( $_POST['exclude_page_from_cookies'] ) ) {
    			foreach( $_POST['exclude_page_from_cookies'] as $exclude_page ) {
    				echo $exclude_page;
    				update_option( 'exclude_page_from_cookies', $exclude_page ) ;
    			}
    		}

    Thank you all in advance.
