    I am curious as to what are the pros and cons in using a form action method as self, processing to another file (ie handle-form.php) and leaving it blank. The reason I ask is I have seen it done so many ways and have never found a definitive answer. I was once told not to use the self action, but I don’t know why.


    The action tells the form where to send its data. If you are using the same script to render the form as process it, use the self. If you are sending the data elsewhere, send it there. It’s as simple as that.
