    A normal (pre-html5) single file upload returns to the server the PHP variable $_FILES with (e.g.):

    Array
    (
        [name] => Afb025 (1).JPG
        [type] => image/jpeg
        [tmp_name] => /mnt/shared/tmp/phpjvaWyf
        [error] => 0
        [size] => 413654
    )

    One would expect that when you add multiple="multiple" to the input tag, this would result in something like:

    Array (
    [0] => Array
    (
        [name] => Afb025 (1).JPG
        [type] => image/jpeg
        [tmp_name] => /mnt/shared/tmp/phpjvaWyf
        [error] => 0
        [size] => 413654
    )
    [1] => Array
    (
        [name] => Afb026 (1).JPG
        [type] => image/jpeg
        [tmp_name] => /mnt/shared/tmp/ph...
        [error] => 0
        [size] => 413654
    )
    )

    But only the last file is returned in the $_FILES var.

    Does anybody know where to find the the uploaded files on the server?

    Hi. I did some research on this topic and I have found this, maybe it can help:
    http://rakaz.nl/2009/08/uploading-multiple-files-using-html5.html

    Note: You probably noticed the brackets I used in the name of the input element. This is not a requirement of the HTML5 specification in any way, but it is a requirement of the PHP scripting language I use on the server. If you add the brackets to the name PHP will construct an array of the uploaded files on the server. If you would leave off the brackets it would process the files in order and only provide the last file to your script. For more information about processing multiple uploaded files see the PHP manual.

    And the php article concerning this topic:

    Thanx a lot, this will help me further (next week).

    Thank you. Should I expect a new version adding this feature next week? 🙂

    Plugin Author Jacob N. Breetvelt

    @opajaap

    Yes, during next week. Got it working already at the front end upload. It turns out to be as simple as one plus one afterall…

    Fixed 4.4.8 available

    Hi Opajaap,

    sorry for not responding for such a long time. I would like to thank you this feature and your immediate reaction!

    There is one thing I would still like to suggest: When uploading single photos, once you select a photo it is added into a list under the file-input box. Would this be possible also with the multiple file upload? So that once you select multiple photos the list of them would be added under the multiple-file-input box.

    @opajaap

    Would this be possible also with the multiple file upload?

    Yes! It will be there in the next version (4.5.1) available in a few days.
    Thanx for the idea.

    I updated to version 4.5.1 today, and the upload works just great! Thank you!
