php mysql results displaying one less record than in database

I am working on a cms app, where i give the end user the ability to create posts and then assign galleries to their posts.

In the page where they are uploading the images, the images are displayed using a select query, and at the same time the post related to the gallery is displayed and is non-editable [i take care of being able to edit the post in a separate process.]

Here is the problem, if the end user uploads 1 image, no images are displayed. If they upload a second image the first image is displayed, and so.

what could be the problem?

Check the code below -- it is the entire page which contains the select queries for displaying the article post, the images, and the form which calls "uploader.php" [the script that uploads and writes the image data into the db].

thank you in advance for any help.

$conn = dbConnect('query');
$siteid = mysql_real_escape_string($_GET['pageid']);
$imgarticleid = mysql_real_escape_string($_GET['articleid']);
$articleid = mysql_real_escape_string($_GET['articleid']);
$sql = "SELECT pageid, pagename, url FROM pages ORDER BY pagename";
$result = mysql_query($sql) or die(mysql_error());
$sql3 = "SELECT pageid, pagename, url FROM pages WHERE pageid='".$siteid."' LIMIT 1";
$conn = dbConnect('admin');

	$sqlimgselect = "SELECT galleryimgs.imgid, galleryimgs.articleid AS imgarticleid, galleryimgs.title, galleryimgs.img FROM galleryimgs WHERE articleid='".$imgarticleid."' "; //WHERE articleid='".$imgarticleid."'
  	$resultimgselect = mysql_query($sqlimgselect) or die (mysql_error());
  	$rowimgselect = mysql_fetch_assoc($resultimgselect);
// get details of selected record

//if ($_GET && !$_POST) {
  //if (isset($_GET['articleid']) && is_numeric($_GET['articleid'])) {
    //$articleid = $_GET['articleid'];
 // else {
  //  $articleid = NULL;
//	}
 // if ($articleid) {
    //$sql = "SELECT * FROM annualdinnerpage WHERE article_id = $article_id"; //create join with annualdinnergalleryimgs
	//$sqlselect = "SELECT articles.*, galleryimgs.articleid AS imgarticleid, galleryimgs.img, galleryimgs.title AS imgtitle 
	//FROM articles LEFT JOIN galleryimgs ON articles.articleid = galleryimgs.articleid
	//WHERE galleryimgs.articleid='".$imgarticleid."' AND articles.articleid='".$imgarticleid."' ";
	//ORDER BY imgarticleid "; //create join with galleryimgs
	$sqlarticle = "SELECT  articles.* FROM articles WHERE articleid='".$articleid."' ";
  $resultarticle = mysql_query($sqlarticle) or die (mysql_error());
  $rowarticle = mysql_fetch_assoc($resultarticle);
//	}
 // }

The PHP mysql_fetch_assoc module will increment the row pointer in the MySQL result set each time it's called. Looks like you fetch an associate array for the first row then loop threw the rest of the rows further down.

Comment out line # 16 if you don't need the first row:

$rowimgselect = mysql_fetch_assoc($resultimgselect);

OR, Add the following before line # 88:
