The name Attribute

//this example will only submit the "Last name" input field

<form action="/action_page.php">
  First name:<br>
  <input type="text" value="Mickey"><br>
  Last name:<br>
  <input type="text" name="lastname" value="Mouse"><br><br>
  <input type="submit" value="Submit">
</form>

Each input field must have a name attribute to be submitted.

If the name attribute is omitted, the data of that input field will not be sent at all.
