it would be cool, if "file genie PHP" checks itself if the folder exists or not.

right now I have to put an IF file_exists statment around it.

Hi Denis,

Can you please explain why would you need to use File Genie PHP with non-existing folders?

the users have the choice to upload images in the backend.
and if they dont there will be no folder.
and in the frontend there will be an error cause there is no image.

I see,
Unfortunately this is not possible right now, as you have to select an existing folder in the UI of the extension.

We will discuss the possibilities of adding an if statement into the incFileGenie.php file in any of the future versions.

Dennis ore someone else would you be kind and explain how you did this "IF file_exists statment" coding and where.

I'm uploading files with DmxMulti uploader and inserting them in dynamic folders with Upload folder set to

Now I want to list the files with File Genie in lets say filesUpload/123456-789/ that was created at upload if there are any such folder created.

This is what i did, I upload files in dynamic folders as shown in previous post

Then in incFileGenie.php about line 110 I add
if (is_dir($this->path))

to check if there is any folder with the specific path. Like this:
		// Get all files
		if (is_dir($this->path)) { //mod by Willy
		$handle = opendir($this->path);
		while (false !== ($file = readdir($handle))) {
			if (is_file($this->path."/".$file)) {
				$name = $file;

And then around line 203 a closing bracket like this
	} //mod by Willy
	function getRealNameFromThumbnail($file) {
		$name = $file;
		$extension = "";
		$pos = strrpos($file, ".");

If it helps anyone
