Dynamic Upload Folder Difficulties

Dynamic Upload Folder Difficulties

Hi there,

I've searched the boards but cannot resolve my issue, though it is similar to others who have posted.

I'm trying to do a combination of static plus dynamic for the folder I'm uploading photos to. The problem is that the dynamic portion is not working, and the images are uploading to the static portion only (which is created with no problem by the uploader.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. The code is currently as follows:

$var3_rsChallenge = "-1";
if (isset($_GET['contest'])) {
$var3_rsChallenge = $_GET['contest'];
mysql_select_db($database_myisateam, $myisateam);
$query_rsChallenge = sprintf("SELECT * FROM challenges WHERE challenge_id=%s", GetSQLValueString($var3_rsChallenge, "int"));
$rsChallenge = mysql_query($query_rsChallenge, $myisateam) or die(mysql_error());
$row_rsChallenge = mysql_fetch_assoc($rsChallenge);
$totalRows_rsChallenge = mysql_num_rows($rsChallenge);?>

// WA_UploadResult1 Params Start
$WA_UploadResult1_Params = array();
// WA_UploadResult1_1 Start
$WA_UploadResult1_Params["WA_UploadResult1_1"] = array(
'UploadFolder' => "pics/".$row_rsChallenge['pictures_folder'] ."",
'FileName' => "[FileName]",
'DefaultFileName' => "",
'ResizeType' => "0",
'ResizeWidth' => "120",
'ResizeHeight' => "120",
'ResizeFillColor' => "#FFFFFF" );
// WA_UploadResult1_1 End
// WA_UploadResult1_2 Start
$WA_UploadResult1_Params["WA_UploadResult1_2"] = array(
'UploadFolder' => "pics/".$row_rsChallenge['pictures_folder'] ."",
'FileName' => "[FileName]_thumb",
'DefaultFileName' => "",
'ResizeType' => "1",
'ResizeWidth' => "60",
'ResizeHeight' => "60",
'ResizeFillColor' => "#FFFFFF" );
// WA_UploadResult1_2 End
// WA_UploadResult1 Params End

if it is not using a value from the recordset for the folder name it suggests that the recordset is empty.

you don't provide the full page, so it is difficult to say for certain, but my guess is that the contest querystring variable is being passed into the page when it initially loads, but is not passed by the forms action when the form is submitted

use the following code for the action of the form so that any querystring variables passed in initialy will also be included in the form post:

 action="<?php echo htmlspecialchars($_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]); ?><?php echo (isset($_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]) && $_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"] != "")?"?".htmlspecialchars($_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]):""?>

It could not access the values from the resultant recordset.yet it shows ambiguous error of null values.

how is the recordset configured?

if the recordset is returning a null value, it suggests that the variable being used to filter is not correct.
