I found an old AS2 file laying around so I decided to try it out with swiffy. It only kind of works. It would play out correct for about the first 5 seconds and then it broke (sad).

I was putting together an upload form today that uploads to a file to PHP. On submit, the $_FILES var was empty and for the life of me I couldn't figure out what was going on.

Attempts:

  1. I tried a print_r on both $_POST and $FILES. Both showed up empty.
  2. Added info to the $_GET to make sure the POST was even going to the action page.
  3. Made sure I had enctype="multipart/form-data" in the form.

Solution:

Apparently for these forms to work, the input type="file" also needs the name attribute. Once I added name="file" the $_FILES var showed with upload data, just as it should. Anyway, I hope this saves someone some time.

Recently, I've started looking for different tech news sources (in companionship to slashdot). Mainly because I wanted to be more thorough about what I find for tech news. I want to be ahead of the curve. I realize that takes a lot of work and a lot of intel because there's other devs doing the same thing. Not only that, but now that I'm a "small fish" -- No one comes to me with new products they are developing. Rather, I have to scour the web myself (pros and cons). Anyway, Read Write Web is my latest find for "nerdy" news. Enjoy!
