how do i grab and print on page in date order all .jpg files in a folder ?


Recommended Posts

great thanks.


i have used the script on the page you gave but i also wish to show the images, but these images are stored using FTP in folder in the HOME directory not the public_html folder.


I can not have these permanately stored in the public_html or folder with in due to them being seen if an unauthourised direct link was used to them.


I have an admin folder in the public_html folder and this has scripts for logins, and the page shows the names of the files in the home/ftpfolder how can i make use of the images and have a smaller version of it show in the page and also allow the logged in user click the image and be shown the larger version.


here is what code i have so far...


							$imgdir = '/home/site/ftpfolder'; // the directory, where your images are stored
							$allowed_types = array('png','jpg','jpeg','gif'); // list of filetypes you want to show
							$dimg = opendir($imgdir);
							while($imgfile = readdir($dimg)) {
								if(in_array(strtolower(substr($imgfile,-3)),$allowed_types)) {
								$a_img[] = $imgfile;
								reset ($a_img);

							$totimg = count($a_img); // total image number
								for($x=0; $x < $totimg; $x++) {
								$size = getimagesize($imgdir.'/'.$a_img[$x]);
								// do whatever
								$halfwidth = ceil($size[0]/2);
								$halfheight = ceil($size[1]/2);
								?><img src="/home/site/ftpfolder/<? echo $a_img[$x];?>" height="100"><?
								echo 'name: '.$a_img[$x].' width: '.$size[0].' height: '.$size[1].'<br />';
