Overview
ShowHide Stack icon
The PostDebug Stack is used strictly for debugging: add this Stack to your page and enable debugging to see information passed to the page from forms, parameters, and so on.

How does it work?
PHP is used to dump any or all super globals from _GET, _POST, _SERVER, _COOKIE, and GLOBALS.

Show COOKIE informationInclude $_COOKIE information. Default for this is disabled.
Show SESSION informationInclude $_SESSION (deprecated) information. Default for this is disabled.
