Topic: mdb-file upload - How to remove existing images on server

Maurizio Maimeri free asked 3 years ago

Hello, i'm using MDB-file upload plugin in edit mode, i.e. I want to give the possibility to the user to change or remove the existing images stored on the server.

I use the "data-default-file" to show the existing image but I want that, once I press the "delete" button, a special value, for example "deleted image", would be inserted in the relevant input value in order to execute a deleting procedure server-side when I submit the form (I make use of php as server-side language and I read the values of $_FILE[] variable)

Has anyone suggestions for this issue?

thanks a lot!

Dear [@Arkadiusz Cacko thank you very much for your kind reply. I found it useful and also in other existing groups I found out something similar. I think that using the "hidden" input is the best solution to adopt!
