Hello ServerStorm, thank you for looking at the Wanted page, and for your detailed reply, I must admit to being a little lost, but with help I will get there...lol
ok I went to the Wanted Ads page, selected a file in "Browse" to upload, Clicked upload, then left clicked on "Browse" to show using Inspect Element with Firebug.
this is what I see:
<input id="nb_uploads_1" type="hidden" value="0" name="nb_uploads_1">
<td align="right" nowrap="">Upload File</td>
<input id="item_file_upload_1" type="file" onchange="upload_media_async(ad_create_form, 1, this.form.item_file_upload_1, document.getElementById('item_file_url_1').value, document.getElementById('item_file_embed_1').value, document.getElementById('nb_uploads_1').value, 4, 'W_39');" style="width: 250px;" name="item_file_upload_1">
I can not see any mention of the selected file: C:\Documents and Settings\XP Vienna\Desktop\Ray scans\1a.jpg
so I reloaded the Wanted Ads page and this time pasted the URL into the upload area, (C:\Documents and Settings\XP Vienna\Desktop\Ray scans\1a.jpg)
Clicked upload, went to Firebug, the same as above.
should I be seeing the C:\Documents and Settings\XP Vienna\Desktop\Ray scans\1a.jpg in the Firebug script?
all help appreciated
