Inserting multiple Images

Inserting multiple Images

Hi Ray
I have a page which inserts images into a table.
Up to 10 images can be inserted but sometimes less than 10 are required.
In order to allow less than 10 images to be inserted (if that is required) I created an image, dot.jpg and made this a default field in the table for all image fields.

I have a page which allows up to 10 images to be inserted into the database but find that any field which has no image inserted looses the default name, dot.jpg and the field becomes empty.

This shows as a fault in Google SEO. (No image available)

I suspect I have to use a new page for the insertion of each image, but that does not seem very user friendly.
I wondered if you know of a better method.
Many thanks for any help

I am looking at the File Manipulation Upload Wizard.
I wish to allow a user to upload a number of specified images.
Each image will be resized to a specified size main and thumb.

Is the heading instruction starting with
"Choose the event to trigger the delete from your database" etc

Can you please say how the box "File Field" specifies the image to be uploaded?

Thanks John

Please ask one question at a time, since I'm not sure which file to open to analyze which issue.

I'm looking at the issue where you reported default file names not being used. You should be able to do it the way you want and shouldn't need separate pages.

In the file boat_insert_images.php you don't have default files specified. They all have:
'DefaultFileName' => "",

I don't really fully understand the second question. Can you include a screenshot of the page you are asking about? It sounds like the label is wrong and it should say "Choose the event to trigger the file upload"

The file field should be the name of the <input type="file"> field from your form. That is how the uploaded file is specified.

Did this help? Tips are appreciated...


Hi Ray,

Many thanks for the help Ray I think I have it working OK now.

Regarding my note on a heading
"Choose the event to trigger the delete from your database",

I cannot find this now!

Many thanks
