Using php, I want to list all the filenames in a folder as hyperlinks


folder
<a href="file1.wmv" target="_blank">file1.wmv</a>
<a href="file2.wmv" target="_blank">file2.wmv</a>
<a href="file3.wmv" target="_blank">file3.wmv</a>

<?php
$folder    = '.';
$files = scandir($folder);

foreach ($files as $file):
	printf("<p><a href='%s' target='_blank'>%s</p>",urlencode($file), $file);
endforeach;
?>

Open in new window



I want code that is outside the folder.
www/file.php
www/folder/file1.wmv
www/folder/file2.wmv
www/folder/file3.wmv


the problem is that the links are
www/file1.wmv
www/file2.wmv
www/file3.wmv

which do not contain the wmv files because the wmv files are in the folder

I want
www/folder/file1.wmv
www/folder/file2.wmv
www/folder/file3.wmv

Is it that what you want ?

<?php
$folder    = '.';
$files = scandir($folder);

foreach ($files as $file){
$file="www/folder/".$file;
	printf("<p><a href='%s' target='_blank'>%s</p>",urlencode($file), $file);
}
?>

you can use dirname(__FILE__) to display your existing full path name
and you change it around for your expect for $file

Hope it will help ;


<?php
chdir(dirname(__FILE__));
echo dirname(__FILE__)."==x=\n";
$folder    = '.';
$files = scandir($folder);

foreach ($files as $file){
$file=dirname(__FILE__)."/".$file;
	printf("<p><a href='%s' target='_blank'>%s</p>",urlencode($file), $file);
}
?>

Obviously I am not going to leave this on my server, but you can install it and test it for yourself.  A sensible design might collect the list of directories and create a table with radio buttons to facilitate the client choice of the directory.  HTH, ~Ray

Duncanb7 had slashes that change direction in windows

C:\Users\Acer\Documents\NuSphere PhpED\Projects/array.php

and not proper href in linux

/home/content/27/89397/html/folder/001.Welcome.f4v

But I can not find errors in Ray's code

Thanks both.

Instead of using slashes, you want to use the context-aware predefined PHP constant:

DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR

If you find that you don't want to type that much when you're doing a lot of file system work, you can do something like this:

define('DS', DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR);
