  1. So, I'm still building this "hot or not" site for my client and I was thinking about how to handle all of the user images.


    I was thinking of having all of the images in 1 directory...but after a while it will get pretty full.


    What are your thoughts about:

    1. Keeping them all in one directory

    2. Having an image directory with indevidual directories that are named the userid or username (user_images/1/my_image.jpg)

    3. Having #2 broken down by first username initial. ex: username - admin (user_images/a/1/my_image.jpg), username - tom (user_images/t/1/my_image.jpg)

    4. any other ideas?


    I'm trying to make this as easy to manage (and practical) in all aspects as possible. Please let me know your thoughts.




  2. I got it :)


    Look at your group1 and group2 arrays...you skipped over #6 in both arrays so it blew up the for loop.


    So it should look like:

    <form name="doublecombo">
    <p><select name="Main" size="12" onChange="redirect(this.options.selectedIndex)">
    <option>For Sale</option>
    <select name="Category" size="12">
    <option value="http://javascriptkit.com">Select...</option>

    var groups=document.doublecombo.Main.options.length
    var group=new Array(groups)
    for (i=0; i<groups; i++)
    group[i]=new Array()
    group[0][0]=new Option("Select from Main","No Category selected!")
    group[1][0]=new Option("Electrical devices","For Sale - Electrical devices")

    	temp.options[i]=new Option(group[x][i].text,group[x][i].value)
    function go(){

  3. I'd say go for it and try it out for a little while, if you don't like it you can always get a full time job. I just made the switch recently to do this stuff full time and I love it. I do still have some clients that I do some inhouse stuff for, but most of it I do from home.


    Money is nice but I hate getting up in the morning for someone else, working on their time, and making THEM money. Why not work for yourself? I just think it's a lot more satisfying. :)

  4. Your logic looks wrong to me...


    Why don't you have a product table where you have the item code, description...and then have an order table where you have each record pointed to a product id.


    I think you will find that a lot easier to manage.
