Hello
I wish to create a dyamic image gallery in dreamweaver using php mysql.
My goal is to be able to fill in a form in my admin section so I can upload and update the images on my gallery.

The problem is I am unsure how to set up the page so I can upload and dynamically change the images on my gallery. Hwoever I know how to set up and connect to a mysql database.

Thanks Guys

Kevin

Hi kevinb4940,

This is a little bit vague.

The DDT provides all the behaviors you need to manage this (upload image, update tables, etc.) so if you could be a little more specific, we can give you a better answer.

Right now, it sounds like you need to read the help file for the Toolkit to understand what it can and cannot do for you.

Sorry, I could have phrased the question a lot better.

Ok I will try to break it down a bit better
1) I have a website with a thumnail gallery. When I click one of the thumbnail images a large image is  displayed. There are 12 thumbnail images.
(example of gallery at http://www.studio10photography.co.uk/gallery.php)

2) I have a mysql database with 12 fileds named image_a to Image_l  (12 images in total)

3) The database is connected to the website with the image gallery

4) I want to create a form so I can upload new images to the database which will replace the existing images on the gallery page. (Basically, I would need 12 fields in the form with a browse for file button and submit button.)
for example: image 1 (form field | browse for file button | upload Button)

I hope this is clearer

Thanks Kevin

Kevin,

I haven't forgotten you, I'm just getting slammed with RL issues.  I'll pick this up again tomorrow night or the weekend.

The short version:

2) You should have a mysql table with just two columns: a primary key and the file name, not one row with 12 images.

4) Once you change #2 around, you can use repeat regions to both display images and easily update things.  It's a little trickier with one row, 12 columns.
