another option could be to make the choice between delete and update two
radio buttons with the same name and just have the one submit button, then
add extra logice to your PHP script to either delete or update depending on
the value of this field.

good luck!

Subject: [PHP] Re: Empty form variables when uploading, Help please???

In a form you can't really have 2 submit buttons.
Either a submit submits or it is just a button.
That's because the var name is already submit (check out your
And you have it twice!
Change one of them and make it just a button (HTML4).
Recheck your post-vars.
This should help.

Otherwise you're loosing your post vars somehwere in the fire-wall.
That's bad!

Hi everybody,

I hope someone is able to help me with this, I've been having this problem
for  a couple of months now and I have not been able to find a solution. I
have a form to upload a file which submits to itself, and has two submit
buttons, one called "eliminarfoto" (deletephoto) and "salvar" (savephoto),
but for some weird and unexplainable reason (it only happens to some users,
not all of them) when they hit any of these two submit buttons, the form
returns empty variables.

This is part of my script, has anybody had a similar problem before??? Any
help would be greatly appreciated.

 <FORM ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data" ACTION="foto.php" METHOD=POST>
 <TABLE border=0 cellPadding=2>
  <TD VALIGN=TOP><P><FONT face=Verdana size=1><B>Foto</B>
  (opcional,<br>tamaño máximo: 20k,<br>formatos permitidos: JPEG,
  <? if ($foto)
  echo "<IMG align=bottom border=0 width=140 height=160
src=\"../fotos/$foto?nc=" . time() ."\"><br>";
  <INPUT TYPE="hidden" name="MAX_FILE_SIZE" value="1000000">
  <INPUT NAME="userfile" TYPE="file">
  <INPUT TYPE="submit" NAME="eliminarfoto" VALUE="Eliminar">
  <INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME=foto VALUE="<? echo $foto ?>">
  <font face="Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,Sans-serif" size="2">
  <INPUT TYPE="SUBMIT" NAME=salvar VALUE="Continuar ->"></TD>
