Ok here’s my predicament.
At work one of my tasks for the site (being created in php) is to create a file uploader where people can select files to upload to the site. The problem is - with this site a user could potentially be wanting to upload over 100 files at any one time, maybe several hundred.
However as I’m sure you know - html file uploaders only allow one file to be selected at once… so for over 100 files this would be incredibly time consuming. Then I thought if there’s a list of files entered into a text box it would be possible to preload lots of file fields with this data - but nope it seems like you’re not allowed to use the value tag to set file fields like you are with normal text inputs.
Does anybody know of a way this could be implemented? Or do you know of any third party scripts that would work? I’m starting to run out of ideas.
I looked around for flash applets as some sites use these but when i went to select a large selection of files they all kept just saying “sorry… too many files”
