Hi Jason, many thanks for your response. No worries, I had a nasty feeling that may be the case. I may have to reconsider things over the search.
I just have a slight issue with another section of the website which I wonder if you can assist? In the admin part of the site, my update page for populating products doesn't seem to be uploading any images anymore. It was working fine a month ago and nothing has changed on the server. It's strange as the insert page for a new product uploads images with no problems and records the file name in the database. But for some reason, if I try to upload a new image on the update-product.php page it doesn't upload the file nor does it record the filename in the database - it does record any other changes i make on the page though.
For the moment I'm concentrating on just one of the file upload fields for testing purposes - 'product_image_2' - and I've added the coding for debugging onto the page and temporarily removed the redirect URL to see what is happening when I try to upload an image via this upload field. I've attached the page and the resulting page with the debug messages on it via a private message. As you'll see, it doesn't throw up any errors and simply says that no file was uploaded. I've checked that the folder on the server the image is being uploaded into has the correct permissions and it does. This is confirmed by the fact that I can upload an image via the 'add-product.php' page into the same folder. I just can't seem to see where the problem may be.
I'd be very grateful for any assistance you can offer.
Many thanks in advance, as always.
