The e-commerce.

Administering products with iOS device


Recommended Posts



I have an osCommerce site up and running. So far, so good. What we'd really like to do now is be able to upload new products, (i.e. administer), via iPhone/iPad. The stock admin page kinda sorta works ok except for the images. The file upload buttons correctly allow me to select a picture from my device's library or take a new one. However, due to iOS "file" limitations, the images are always called "image.jpg".


Ideally, it'd be great if there was an add on module that was specifically built for this. I couldn't find that.


Failing that, I'd maybe modify the code myself to add a unique number to the end of the base image name so at least all the images would not overwrite each other. The problem for me is that I am an absolute beginner with PHP. I'd be grateful for someone to point me to the code where I could recognize the uploaded name, and, when appropriate, alter it to be unique.
