The script I've written is a small news system, but it seems when I go to upload the image, it's inserted into the file I choose, but it isn't appearing when I view the article? Really confused and I've came to and end with this, any help would be much appreciated!
<?php
 
// Include the needed file(s)
require_once("require/config.php");
 
if($isLogged != true) {
	
		core::redir("login.php", "You must be logged in to access this page.", "3", "error");
	
}
 
else {
 
?>

chmod() gives a return value.  What do you get when you test that?
http://us2.php.net/manual/en/function.chmod.php

You might also want to use the chmod() against the path and file name together:
chmod("news/" . $file, 0777);

What OS are you running?  Are you on a hosted server?
