Dear EE experts,

We would like to ask for tech support on how to insert additional path into this line:
Response.Write "<a href=""" & download1 & """>DOWNLOAD</a>"

Please see the attached code & screenshot for more details.
If a user uploads a photo, it will go to this location: ..\ASIA\photo\DOWNLOAD
Then from the db it started @ DOWNLOAD. I would like to add "../photo/
Because at this moment, user uploads, then try to download the original file, the location would be http://sitename/iphoto/asia/DOWNLOAD.... it should be http://sitename/iphoto/asia/photo/DOWNLOAD...

Kindly advise on how to resolve this case...

Thank you & hope to hear from experts soon...

Hi,

Just use replace or concat function. Of course the name is not concat in ASP.

To user replace function

Response.Write "<a href=""" & Replace(download1, "asia", "asia/photo") & """>DOWNLOAD</a>"

@khairil, thanks for the response. But the result is still the same, I tried to browse it in IE & even in Google Chrome, but both gave me an error result...

I think the word "asia" is not in the string,

Try this instead:
Response.Write "<a href=""" & Replace(download1, "download", "photo/download") & """>DOWNLOAD</a>" 

Open in new window


Clear cache from your browser, just in case.

I'm sorry but we haven't uploaded it yet, but you can see the screenshot for you to see the link on the lower left, I need to have the additional "/photo/" after the asia.
And you can check this thread ID: 27321625, it's the same page, but different subject...
You can see some scripts from there...

i not sure if it is because of case sensitive, but worth trying

Response.Write "<a href=""" & Replace(download1, "DOWNLOAD", "photo/download") & """>DOWNLOAD</a>" 

Open in new window


By default "replace" command  compare using binary, which means case sensitive.

Oh! It's really weird! Because yesterday I tried it with the word "download" in lower case, is not working, but now, we just changed it to UPPER CASE, and it's working now! Great!
