i am working on a file upload system and i need the user to be able to upload images onto the server with the page reloading. the page reloading causes all the other information to be lost and the user having a lot of unwanted windows open.

what is the best way forward to complete this task?

Well you could proberbly use a bit of AJAX to refresh the page when the upload is done, or maybe even a header relocation could work, depends on how the file(s) is uploaded

i worked it out using iframes thanks for the reply tho.
