I need a simple file to be uploaded and renamed to be the typed field.

so if I have a box for the user to type in a number then make that number the name of the file they uploaded

Hi JD,
Here's a quick example

$image_name = $_POST['inputname'];
$extension = end(explode(".", $_FILES["photo"]["name"]));
$directory = 'myphotos';
if (!file_exists('../'.$directory)) {
mkdir('../'.$directory, 0777, true);
'../'.$directory.'/'.$image_name.'.'.$extension );
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.
