I am a nood forgive me if all my code is messy, and evrything I know is self taught so my knowledge is not that great.

I have an issue, I created an insert record form and in it there is title, price, 8 file upload fields and other fields.

every thing somewhat works fine, but the file upload has problems.

if I input images into all the 8 file fields and submit the form there is no problem, but if i input 7 or 6 or less, i.e leave one or more file field blank and then try to submit the form, I get an error message (Notice: Undefined variable: insertSQL ...... line 126, Query was empty) and line 126 is

$Result1 = mysql_query($insertSQL, $val_nija_estate) or die(mysql_error());

I am using dreamweaver

And I m not so keen on using the blob method of uploading, i want to save the images on the server.

this is the code for the whole thing

$editFormAction = $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];
if (isset($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'])) {
  $editFormAction .= "?" . htmlentities($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING']);
}

if ((isset($_POST["MM_insert"])) && ($_POST["MM_insert"] == "add_listing")) {

He's right i would start spliting it out to be more flexible, thats way too much repeating yourself.

as a quick fix you could try changing these lines:

if(move_uploaded_file($t_name,$dir."/".$finalfile1))

to

@move_uploaded_file($t_name,$dir."/".$finalfile1)

for all 8 files, them if's are not enclosed like

if(){

}
so it is likely skipping the next line if it fails to pass, eg. if image 8 fails to move insertSQL doesnt get ran.


Heres how i would re-write your uploading file to be more manageable:

First off i would restructure your images out into a second table, so properties can have no images or 80 images doesnt matter and can be as scaleable as you want.

property_listings_db 

propertyid, property_listing_title, bathrooms, bedrooms, state_ID, city_ID, type_ID, property_listing_price, long_description, short_description
images

imageid,propertyid,imagetitle,imagedata
1,1,prop1img,rf34wferg434tr
2,1,prop1img2,dgrw45tgdrgw54
3,2,prop2img1,23423423545345
....

and the php

$editFormAction = $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];
if(isset($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'])){
	$editFormAction .= "?" . htmlentities($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING']);
}
function uploadImage($dbcon,$uploadName,$propid){
	$name = basename($_FILES[$uploadName]['name']);
	$ext = substr(strrchr($name, "."), 1);
	$randName = md5(rand() * time());
	$finalfile = $randName . '.' . $ext;
	$t_name = $_FILES[$uploadName]['tmp_name'];
	$dir = '../../images/properties/images/';
	$D['name'] = $name;
	if(move_uploaded_file($t_name,$dir."/".$finalfile)){
		$insertSQL = sprintf("INSERT INTO `images` (propertyid,imagetitle, imagedata) VALUES (%s, %s, %s)",
                       GetSQLValueString($propid, "text"),
                       GetSQLValueString($name, "text"),
                       GetSQLValueString($finalfile, "text"));
        if(mysql_query($insertSQL,$dbcon)){

        }else{
        	$D['success'] = false;
        	$D['msg'] = 'Mysql Query failed: '.mysql_error($dbcon);
        }
	}else{

}
if(ISSET($uploads)){
	foreach($uploads as $v){

}

the advantage with functions is you can include your whole app into a function file so you always have an easy way to upload images from here on out
