I feel at home among the ASP'ers ('cause I know that you guys know so much more than me, but we still share the same sandbox), but.. on with it......
but here is the pithy version of my question that tells enough of the story:
" How do they make those features where you can browse to the hard-drive to attach a file (like they do for the avatars on this site, and for attaching resumes and files on other sites)? "
I recieved some advice (for which I am grateful) but I am finding it a bit tougher than expected to put all of it together. But I'm game... so I just need a shove in the right direction.
First you should know that I went to ASP101(.com) and apparently I can't use what they have there. Within the code it says:
"YOU MUST HAVE VBSCRIPT v5.0 INSTALLED ON YOUR WEB SERVER FOR THIS LIBRARY TO FUNCTION CORRECTLY'
...but since it didn't work when I tried it, I must be out of luck because I have no control over whats on my web server (and I very little idea of what is actually on my web server to begin with). So... I guess that solution (or any other that requires the same library) is not my answer.
So basically the first and most important question is:
Is ASP still an option?
('cause if I have to take this to the PHP guys, I'm going to cry)
And... no sense taking this further until I know if ASP remains a possibility.
And I'm genuinely sorry that this post is long too. Sometimes questions really can't be asked without "expounding" a little.
Thanks ASP crew
