Following step by step guide and adding Progress bar shows and does nothing

Hi, I've started from the absolute beginning and tried to follow the step by step guide to adding an upload image form and got nowhere. Tried adding a progress bar too but makes things worse. Here's the code produced by following the guide. All files have been uploaded and are in the locations outlined below. Can somebody please tell me where it's going wrong? Many thanks.

-----------THE ORRIBLE CODE------------

<?php
<script src="WA_DigitalFilePro/jquery-blockui-formprocessing.js" type="text/javascript"></script>require_once("WA_DigitalFilePro/HelperPHP.php"); ?>
<?php
// WA_UploadResult1 Params Start
$WA_UploadResult1_Params = array();
// WA_UploadResult1_1 Start
$WA_UploadResult1_Params["WA_UploadResult1_1"] = array(
'UploadFolder' => "images/uploads/",
'FileName' => "[FileName]",
'DefaultFileName' => "",
'ResizeType' => "0",
'ResizeWidth' => "120",
'ResizeHeight' => "120",
'ResizeFillColor' => "#FFFFFF" );
// WA_UploadResult1_1 End
// WA_UploadResult1 Params End
?>
<?php
// WA_UploadResult2 Params Start
$WA_UploadResult2_Params = array();
// WA_UploadResult2_1 Start
$WA_UploadResult2_Params["WA_UploadResult2_1"] = array(
'UploadFolder' => "images/uploads/",
'FileName' => "[FileName]",
'DefaultFileName' => "",
'ResizeType' => "0",
'ResizeWidth' => "120",
'ResizeHeight' => "120",
'ResizeFillColor' => "#FFFFFF" );
// WA_UploadResult2_1 End
// WA_UploadResult2 Params End
?>
<?php?>
<?php
WA_DFP_SetupUploadStatusStruct("WA_UploadResult1");
if(isset($_POST["submit"])){
WA_DFP_UploadFiles("WA_UploadResult1", "upload", "0", "", "true", $WA_UploadResult1_Params);
}?>
<?php
WA_DFP_SetupUploadStatusStruct("WA_UploadResult2");
if($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST"){
WA_DFP_UploadFiles("WA_UploadResult2", "upload", "0", "", "true", $WA_UploadResult2_Params);
}
?>
<script src="WA_DigitalFilePro/jquery-blockui-formprocessing.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

<div id="form1_ProgressWrapper">
<form id="form1" name="form1" enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post" action="">
<p>
<label>Upload File
<input type="file" name="upload" id="upload" />
</label>
</p>
<p>
<label>
<input type="submit" name="submit" id="submit" value="Submit" />
</label>
</p>
</form>
</div>

--------------ORRIBLE CODE ENDS--------------------

As soon as the DIV for the progress bar is added. The form disappears completely! As someone else has mentioned I'm not a coder either but don't mind getting hands dirty, but the sales pitch is 'with little or no coding experience'. I think not!!!!!

The first problem i see is at line 1- 2:

php:
<?php

<script src="WA_DigitalFilePro/jquery-blockui-formprocessing.js" type="text/javascript"></script>require_once("WA_DigitalFilePro/HelperPHP.php"); ?>




it should be changed to:

php:
<?php require_once("WA_DigitalFilePro/HelperPHP.php"); ?>



I have never seen the script tag added to the php code block before so I cannot say why it is doing that.


It may be doing it because you page is not a complete web page, it is missing required pieces such as the doctype tag, the head tabs, the html and body tags.



If images are still not uploading, add the3 following code at line 1 to see if there is a php error occurring:

php:
<?

error_reporting(E_ALL);
ini_set('display_errors','on');
?>




also go the bindings tab, expand the WA Uploaded Files Global Status group and add the debug Info binding to your page.

After performing a test, post pack with the output of the debug info.

I can't even find the progress bar 'how to'. haha. The link in the DFP How to - Adding the Digital File Pro Progress Bar - boots up my default browser and then sends me to the home page. I tried using the URL in the same browser and window but still getting kicked back to the home page. The search field isn't providing any solutions either.

I've tried using the progress bar extension and while I get a new div, I don't see anything else happening. Also, the progress bar doesn't actually run when I'm uploading stuff. Hence I'm looking for the 'How To'.

Thanks

the link is in the How To Section of the Digital File pro support page:
digital-file-pro/


digital_file_pro_progress_bar_ht.pdf



if you are still having problems, send a link to your page so I can take a look.

I'm sure I checked there and that file wasn't there at the time. I must be going mad. Thanks for the link anyway.

After having read the How to I realise that I had actually done what I needed to do correctly. Which means the progress bar isn't working. Can I ask, is there a file other than the file within which DFP is being used that needs to be uploaded? I had this problem with DFP itself where there was a whole file that I didn't know about that needed to go. I really think this sort of information is critical and should be in the How To's. I only update the relevant file rather than my whole website because their are just too many differing files to sort through. If I don't know what other file to upload then I'm stuck.

can't send you a link because it is in a secure area of a secure website which would require registering etc etc.

There is a file named "jquery-blockui-formprocessing.js" created in the WA_DigitalFilePro directory that needs to be uploaded.


if you are still having problems, please compress the php file into a zip archive so I can take a look at the code.

Hey there, I've checked that folder and its been refreshed up to the server. Still no joy. I don't mind zipping the page although it has certain areas that I will have to remove for security but I don't really know what you mean by a zip archive. Also, because the php file is just a single page of text, it doesn't really need to be zipped... Let me know what you think. cheers.

Attached a file but then realised there was too much secure stuff I needed to hack out. This will be quicker if I just bin the update bar.

can you try adding the progress bar to another page that contains only a form with a file upload field. It is not necessary to add the upload file behavior, just the progress bar and see if that works.

ok, I had a go at this and I did actually notice a whole bunch of html appear that was not appearing before. I think this may be something to do with the fact that I had a big bunch of php underneath. Don't really know. I copied and pasted the :

<div id="images1_ProgressMessageWrapper" class="blockUIOverlay" style="display:none;">
<script type="text/javascript">
WADFP_SetProgressToForm('images1', 'images1_ProgressMessageWrapper', WADFP_Theme_Options['Bar:Pacifica']);
</script>
<div id="images1_ProgressMessage" >
<p style="margin:10px; padding:5px;" ><img src="WA_DigitalFilePro/images/pacifica-bar.gif" alt="" title="" style="vertical-align:middle;" />&nbsp;&nbsp;Please wait</p>
</div>

bit into the right page and hey presto it works. So, thanks for that.
