File Extension Validation

File Extension Validation

There seems to be an error in the code for the file extension validation.

In order to use it for a simple file name, such as picture.jpg , I have to remove the preg_replace function.


$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateFE(((isset($_FILES["gallery_image"]))?preg_replace('/^.*\./', '', $_FILES["gallery_image"]["name"]) :"") . "",".gif, .jpg, .png",true,2);

Written by server validations, this does not allow any upload.

I have to change it to:

$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateFE(((isset($_FILES["gallery_image"]))?$_FILES["gallery_image"]["name"]:"") . "",".gif, .jpg, .png",true,2);

to get it to work.

the File Extension validation takes the Full name as the input, the code you are getting, is because you have selected the File Extension Binding, instead of selecting the file Extension binding, select the Binding for the file Field, it will be the one that does not have a lightning bolt icon next to it, the ones with the lightning bolt icon, are created by Digital File Pro and not needed for file extension validation.
