I have a product website where my client uploads details ie name, image etc.

If no image is uploaded (which means no filepath entry in the 'image' column of the database) I want to display a generic 'No image available' image. How would I do this?

Here's the code which displays the image...

<a href="detail.php?id=<?php echo $row_product['id']; ?>"><img src="uploads/thumb_<?php echo $row_product['image']; ?>" alt="" border="0" /></a>

<a href="detail.php?id=<?php echo $row_product['id']; ?>"><?php
if($row_product['image'])
{
  echo '<img src="uploads/thumb_' . $row_product['image'] . '" alt="" border="0" />';
}
else
{
  echo '<img src="http://thegarageblog.com/garage/wp-content/uploads/noimageavailable.jpg" alt="" border="0" />';
}
?></a>

Just replace http://thegarageblog.com/garage/wp-content/uploads/noimageavailable.jpg with the correct URL to your own "no image available" image.

Dear,

Something like that :

<?php
if (empty($row_product['image'])) 
{
?>
<a href="detail.php?id=<?php echo $row_product['id']; ?>"><img src="uploads/thumb_<?php echo $row_product['image']; ?>" alt="" border="0" /></a>
<?php
}
else
	{
	print "No image available";
	}
?>
