|Hi, I really like this class, it makes for quick and easy filtered fileuploads to prevent suspicious file uploads, not to mention image handling and multiple file uploads.|
So obviously I'm using this class on my site, but i want to be able to rename the file to avoid duplicate file names.
I've managed to get the file saved as a different name, however i just can't figure out how to keep the original extension, eg. .doc .txt .html etc..
aka i want to rename file.doc to user.section.doc or file.txt to user.section.txt
like i said i've got the user.section. part figured out, it's just the extension that is giving me problems.
any help would be great.

|I have just downloaded this class and have not examined the code at all, but here's how I have been getting the extension of a file:|
# get the name of the file that was submitted for uploading
$filename = basename($_FILES[$html_form_field_name]['name']);
# get the extension of the file submitted to be uploaded
$extension = strtolower(substr($filename, strrpos($filename, '.') + 1));
Hope this helps...
