Pure PHP Upload is another great extension from George Petrov of Dynamic Zones, which allows you to easily create upload forms using the Dreamweaver MX PHP Server Model, allowing your site users to upload files or images to your server.
The extension is easy to apply, with a tabbed interface allowing easy access to the many options available within the extension. The extension is very configurable, and has many options allowing you to tailor the code produced so that it matches your exact needs. For example, you can specify the extension of files that are allowed to be uploaded, and for images, the minimum and maximum image sizes that can be used.
If a file with the same name as the one being uploaded is already present on the server, you have a number of options such as overwriting the existing file, displaying an error message, or creating a new unique filename.
One really nice feature is the inclusion of a number of small animated flash movies, from which you can select one to be displayed in a pop up window as the file is being uploaded, giving useful feedback to the end user, and adding a more professional touch to your site.
The main PHP code for the extension is added to your site as an include file, which minimizes the amount of code added to your actual page, and keeps everything neat and tidy.
Congratulations to George for another well thought out extension with a number of nice features, and it makes a great addition to your Dreamweaver MX toolbox.
