Hi!

I have been facing an issue with php ajax File uploader that has the drag drop area to drop Files and then it uploads. It is changing the File Extension to none when uploads to server. any body can help?

i think that's what php do, use random string to name the temp file. you can easily rename it to anything you want.

The original file name is in $_FILES['yourfieldname']['name']

The temporary file is in $_FILES['yourfieldname']['tmp_name']

So grab the extension off the first one:

Code:

<?php

$fileName = $_FILES['yourfieldname']['name'];
$extension = array_pop(explode('.',$fileName));

echo $extension;
