<form id="uploadForm" action="insert.php" method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data">
            
            Product Name: <input name="product_name" type="text" value="" /><br /><br />
            Product Description: <input name="product_description" type="text" value="" /><br /><br />
            Price: <input name="price" type="text" value="" /><br /><br />            

                Thumbnail: <input type="file" name="thumbnail" /><br /><br />
                
                Image 1: <input type="file" name="img1" /><br /><br />

                Image 2: <input type="file" name="img2" /><br /><br />

                Image 3: <input type="file" name="img3" /><br /><br />
 
                Image 4: <input type="file" name="img4" /><br /><br />
                
                Image 5: <input type="file" name="img5" /><br /><br />
                <input type="submit" value="Submit" />
            </form>

Awesome! Now how do I get that inserted into the database? :)

Mark BradyCommented:
just add the insert statement into each image upload. I'm not sure exactly how your code works but here is a rough example.

if($_FILES['img1']['name']!='')
      {
            $img1 = $_FILES['img1']['name'];
            if (is_uploaded_file($_FILES['img1']['tmp_name']))
            {
                  ;
// Insert into database here
      mysql_query("INSERT INTO images (path,title,type) VALUES ('$path','$title','$extension')")or die(mysql_error());
            }
            $uploadfile2 = $uploaddir1.$img1;//basename($_FILES['img1']['name']);
            if(move_uploaded_file($_FILES['img1']['tmp_name'], $uploadfile2))
            {
                  ;
            }
      }

Just create your insert statement however you wish to have it inserted and put the statement into the above code so as soon as the file has been named and moved then you would run your insert statement.

elvin66, won't that create a new row in the database for each image? I want to insert all the form data into one database record.

Where it says
//save query

the query should be
mysql_query("INSERT INTO tablename (name, desc, thumbnam=il, img1...) VALUES ('$pname','$pdesc','$uploadfile1'....)")or die(mysql_error());

Mark BradyCommented:
Yes as BhawnaP says put the insert code where it says "save query" at the bottom of your code

I ended up re-purposing some php logic that I had layin' around and combined it with what you posted first, BhawnaP.

I'm gonna give your latest post a shot as it's a little cleaner that mine.
