/'s screwing up in file upload
One of the features I have in a script is a file upload.
A problem occures when a / is in a file name because it reads it as a next directory ie c:/windows/
so lets say I had the image called
its tries to upload hte picture "max.gif" into a folder "re"
I need to keep the slashes in there.. possible?
Why do the slashes need to be there, out of curiousity? I'd use an underscore (_) instead, personally. I'm sorry if that's not helpful, I'm just curious really.
well, its mainly because of a design mistake when the program was initialy created a few montsh back.
the database has categories, one of which is Re/max (a realtor)
They have to have the / in their name for legal reassons.
When uploading the picture, it is an add for that directory.
When the page is loaded it looks for a picture with the same name as the category.
so its looking for a file named re/max.whatever
thats why the slash had to be in there.
I solved the problem now, I just rewrote the code that was looking for the image to use the index collums instead on names
