renaming files

Thread began 12/31/2009 1:49 pm by deafboyz_audio386924 | Last modified 1/05/2010 2:45 pm by deafboyz_audio386924 | 1129 views | 5 replies


ok i get what your saying and sorry for not being more clear but you know coding... :)

I dont want to rename the 'if file exists' part of DFP2.... I want the uploaded file to be renamed to a incrementing number as it is uploaded, before it is added to the DB, before it is made into a thumb and what not....

If that happens I will NEVER have a duplicate file.... the thumbs will be

t_[Incrementing#]  the original will be the SAME [Incrementing#] without the t_

If I can get the filename unique before the DB that saves me one extra step....

I experimented with the [FileName] spot and changed it to [Increment] but that doesnt work....

How do I Rename the file on upload to a 'unique incrementing id' and then add a 't_' in front of it to designate a thumb.... all before the DB is even touched?
