Time Stamp for Image Name

Thread began 10/20/2009 6:15 pm by simmo515303621 | Last modified 10/21/2009 1:32 pm by Jason Byrnes | 1115 views | 2 replies |


Time Stamp for Image Name


Ok I have tried many things to get this to work and would like to know how to get it done correctly.

When adding images I am using a timestamp to name the image.

that works well - when I update an Image I would of course like to use the same name that has already been created - but when I do it appends .jpg to the end .

so for example I uplaod an image and its name becomes 1234567890.jpg

If I then update with another image - The result I get is 1234567890.jpg.jpg.

The reason I am going about it this way is so I do not have a whole buch of redundant images on the server....

Please let me know what I am doing wrong

Sounds to me like you are using a variable to append it. I bet if you left the page and returned it would work as expected. Obviously you don't want to do that all the time. If your name code is before the WA code, then just after the WA code empty the variable that holds '.jpg' string. So if you create the variable $time = $time.'jpg' before the WA code, you would write $time =""; after the WA code. Hope that helps.

hard to tell what is wrong without seeing the code.

Can you send a copy of your page with your reply so I can examine the code.
