    How do I make this script direct uploads to a folder called incoming.


    1. Copy the coding into the HEAD of your HTML document
    2. Add the last code into the BODY of your HTML document -->

    <!-- STEP ONE: Paste this code into the HEAD of your HTML document


    <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
    <!-- Original: ArjoGod, Shauna Merritt -->
    <!-- Modified By: Ronnie T. Moore, Editor -->

    <!-- This script and many more are available free online at -->
    <!-- The JavaScript Source!! -->

    <!-- Begin
    extArray = new Array(".gif", ".jpg", ".png");
    function LimitAttach(form, file) {
    allowSubmit = false;
    if (!file) return;
    while (file.indexOf("\\") != -1)
    file = file.slice(file.indexOf("\\") + 1);
    ext = file.slice(file.indexOf(".")).toLowerCase();
    for (var i = 0; i < extArray.length; i++) {
    if (extArray == ext) { allowSubmit = true; break; }
    if (allowSubmit) form.submit();
    alert("Please only upload files that end in types: "
    + (extArray.join(" ")) + "\nPlease select a new "
    + "file to upload and submit again.");
    // End -->

    <!-- STEP TWO: Copy this code into the BODY of your HTML document -->


    Please upload only images that end in:
    document.write(extArray.join(" "));

    <form method=post name=upform action="/cgi-bin/some-script.cgi"
    <input type=file name=uploadfile>
    <input type=button name="Submit" value="Submit"
    onclick="LimitAttach(this.form, this.form.uploadfile.value)">

    You can't because the script doesn't handle the actual file upload.
    The upload process is handled by the 'some-script.cgi'.

    Do a Google search on File Upload + <language of your choice>

    [snip 2 end]
