Only the file name for an uploaded file is being stored?

Hi, I'm tring to upload images which is working fine as they are all going to the directories specified but the url for the image is not been stored correctly it's only storing the image name.

Do you know what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in advance. BTW just moved overt from ADDT and love the webassitst products.

It most cases it is preferential to store only the files name in the database.

If you wish to store the full url, you will need to append it to the server File Name binding in the insert record behavior.

When you bind to the Server File name in the insert record behavior, it will add code similar to:

<?php echo $WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult1"]["serverFileName"]; ?>

you can add the full path in front of that to force it to tore the full URL:

http;//<?php echo $WA_DFP_UploadStatus["WA_UploadResult1"]["serverFileName"]; ?>
