Hello, and thanks for viewing my project.
I have a custom PHP script that I coded myself. I am having trouble modifying the current image uploading function to expand its capabilities. I'm sure it is something VERY EASY that I am just overlooking! I just need a helping hand from a fellow coder.
"Seeker" is the secret word. Your bid *must* have this word or I will ignore it, no matter your price, or feedback.
Here is what the current function does: ([url removed, login to view] gets called in a frame)
1) User can upload an image (only extentions: jpg, png, gif) and it is moved to the /images folder on the server. (one at a time)
2) In another area, ALL the images located in that folder are placed in a drop-down list (&lt;Select&gt;&lt;/select&gt;)
3) Actually, there are 2 identical drop down lists, because the user can use a 2nd (optional) image in the output file.
4) The list is alphabetized.
5) I plan for it to list the last 5 images uploaded first, and THEN have the regular list after it. It's easy. So easy I haven't done it yet, lol.
Just to make sure you are reading this project in its entirety, the new code word is "Kahlan" and ignore the next secret word at the end of the project listing.
*** HERE IS THE PROBLEM: ***
As you can imagine, if there are 200 images, that drop-down box will be HUGE! I need to find a way to make it manageable. I have thought of using "category" folders inside the upload folder, but how to implement it in the drop-down?
Note: I plan on selling this script, (and supporting it) so it has to be top-notch.
What is your take on this? How would you solve the problem I have described? Remember, this is a custom collection of PHP functions and pages, written by a beginner coder. I don't want to start from scratch JUST to incorporate this "fix" if you know what I mean. In the future (8 to 10 months) I plan on version 2 from the ground up, using classes and extending classes. For now, it's very choppy, but it works BLAZING FAST.
I would like the work to be done in less than 5 calendar days after accepting the work. You must sign a non-disclosure agreement. You must have a good grasp of the English language. Please do not bid if you do not know what it is that I want.
NOTE: A low bid does not necessarily mean I will select you. I will gladly pay what YOU think your solution is worth, if it's within my secret budget.
Please use the code word "Seeker" in your bid, or I will ignore it. Thanks!
