Hi,

i have a slideshow that i am altering to be able to use with php file upload, below is the page that displays the images.  i can only get it to display one image at a time, well multiple instances of the same image.  How can i make it show all the images (and related info) from the database, the number of images in the database might change sometimes only 6 others 16.

thanks,

Mskazza

Use a loop
<div id="myImageFlow" class="imageflow">
<?php
while($row_images = mysql_fetch_assoc($images)){
?>

<img src="img/<?php echo $row_images['path']; ?>" longdesc="<?php echo $row_images['desc']; ?>" alt="Image 1" />

<?php
}
?>

thanks for your reply.

the above is not returning anything, i must be doing something wrong, please find my code below.  it just gets stuck saying loading images, but nothing ever loads.

 
<?php require_once('Connections/imageflow.php'); ?>
<?php
if (!function_exists("GetSQLValueString")) {
function GetSQLValueString($theValue, $theType, $theDefinedValue = "", $theNotDefinedValue = "") 
{
  if (PHP_VERSION < 6) {
    $theValue = get_magic_quotes_gpc() ? stripslashes($theValue) : $theValue;
  }

  $theValue = function_exists("mysql_real_escape_string") ? mysql_real_escape_string($theValue) : mysql_escape_string($theValue);

  switch ($theType) {
    case "text":
      $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
      break;    
    case "long":
    case "int":
      $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? intval($theValue) : "NULL";
      break;
    case "double":
      $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? doubleval($theValue) : "NULL";
      break;
    case "date":
      $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
      break;
    case "defined":
      $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? $theDefinedValue : $theNotDefinedValue;
      break;
  }
  return $theValue;
}
}

mysql_select_db($database_imageflow, $imageflow);
$query_images = "SELECT * FROM images ORDER BY `path` ASC";
$images = mysql_query($query_images, $imageflow) or die(mysql_error());
$row_images = mysql_fetch_assoc($images);
$totalRows_images = mysql_num_rows($images);
?>

the only thing visible in the brower is :

Remove line 37
$row_images = mysql_fetch_assoc($images);
Does the query
SELECT * FROM images ORDER BY `path` ASC
run directly on the database return images rows ?
