    Including Upload File in Form

    rgallatin Community Member

      I need my form to choose a file from a visitor's input then upload the file to my hard drive for use on a customized member page. Can this be done in Dreamweaver? HTML only? It seems like such a simple task, but I cannot get the form to upload a file. The code below handles all the text fields and correctly selects a file, but it will not upload the file to my HD. Am I using bad code (erroneous input type) or is there a larger problem (such as a need for custom script like php)?

       

      <form action="http://us.1.p9.webhosting.yahoo.com/forms?login=richard_gallatin" method="post" class="form760right">

              <div class="formtitle">

      <div class="formidtitle"><a href="#"><img src="/myavanti/title_Aicon.jpg" alt="Avanti" width="40" height="40" border="0" onclick="MM_openBrWindow('/myavanti_home.html','myavantiwindow','scrollbars=yes,resizable =yes,width=1024,height=800')" /></a></div>
