    Print POST data URL image on submission.

    Asked by bigday on August 15, 2013 at 11:13 AM

    I have radio buttons with images as fields. I'm customizing my submit page.

    I got an array [choosedesign] => http://artdef.net/%22http://artdef.net/test/ebayform/images/%236.jpg/%22

    How i can get rid of "
    http://artdef.net/%22" & "/%22" and print/shows correct image url?


    my code:



           $design = $_POST[choosedesign];

           $ebayid = $_POST[ebayid4];

           $text = $_POST[invitationannouncementdetails];

           print "<p>Order details:<p>";

           print " <p>Your design: $design<p>"; 

           print " <p>Your text: $text<p>"; 

           print " Thank you $ebayid for your order!";

    I am not sure  if I understood correctly. But I think you want to display the string rather than the image itself right?

    Since the variable $design will get whichever option an user chooses from the radio buttons, you should insert apostrophes . Also make sure you define correctly your variable names. In this case, you did not use  capital D as it should be.

           $design = $_POST['chooseDesign'];


    I hope this helps

    I need something for cleaning URL from weird array output. Code like this but is not working?

           $design = $_POST['choosedesign'];

           $design = str_replace ('http://artdef.net/%22', '', $design);

    $design = str_replace ('/%22', '', $design);

           print " <p>Your design: $design<p>";

    Hello nwy,

    I highly suggest that you follow what Ma'am Jeanettebmz has suggested.

    Please use a capitalized "D" in this code.

    $design = $_POST['chooseDesign'];

    Then let us know if there is further assistance needed.

    Thank you and we will wait for your response to assist you further.

    With capitalized "D" $_POST get nothing. I see two ways to resolve my problem:

    1. Fix jotform SEND in case of image fields, so that the output array will be just clean no messy url of image field. Now I get this output for choosen field:  http://artdef.net/%22http://artdef.net/test/ebayform/images/%236.jpg/%22

    but it supposed be this:  http://artdef.net/test/ebayform/images/%236.jpg

    2. Use php _replace to clean messy jotform url.

    I used php substr to cut the proper url but it has one fundamental flaw that the url must always have the same number of characters. I realized also that delete my own class of the form field change output string for img field but is still messy.

    $design = $_POST['choosedesign'];

           $design = substr($design, 42,47);

           print "<p>Order details:<p>";

           print " <p>Your design:<p>";

           echo '<img src="'.$design.'">';

    Have you tried using urlencode and urldecode to fix the messy URL print?

    Check this article on PHP manual.

    In our JotForm guide Send-POST-Data-From-JotForm-Using-PHP-in-Custom-Thank-You-Page, you can see a sample useage of this.

    Please inform us if you need further assistance.

    urldecode is just changing %22 for quotation mark leaving me still with this impossible to show messy url:

    Anyway I'm using substr and is working fine. I just need have same length for all my image fields urls.

    Thanks anyway for trying. BTW Someone could fix SEND output for images urls or at  least PLEASE do something with your JOTFORM users profile image upload! This issue is since february 2013 and still not fixed. Come on!

    Thanks for letting us know that you found a work around to this issue. Please let us know if the work around does not work in the future as the url for the images change so that we can find another solution for you.

    I am also seeing where you already started another thread about the problem that you are having uploading images and our developers are already looking into it.
