- 1 answer

form html:

<form action='/register/' method = 'post'>{% csrf_token %}
    ...
    <label>Avatar: </label><input type='file' name='avatar' value='' /><br />
    <input type = 'submit' name='submit' value='Sign up' />
</form>

models.py

class Employee(models.Model):
    ...
    avatar = models.ImageField(upload_to = 'avatar', blank = True, null = True)
    ...

and views.py

def register(request):
    success = False
    message = ''
    try:
        newE = Employee.objects.create(...
                                avatar = request.POST['avatar'])
        success = True
        message = 'Register successful!'
        return HttpResponse(json.dumps({'success':str(success).lower(), 'message':message}))
    except:
        Employee.objects.filter(email = request.POST['email']).delete()
        message = 'Can\'t create a new account!'
        return HttpResponse(json.dumps({'success':str(success).lower(), 'message':message}))

settings.py

MEDIA_ROOT = '/home/dotcloud/data/media/'
MEDIA_URL = '/media/'

when I use the django admin page, the image will load and save: http://training-hongquan156.dotcloud.com/media/avatar/image.png but when I use html form upload photos, the image is not uploaded and saved in the folder 'avatar', but saves the path: http://training-hongquan156.dotcloud.com/media/image.png and i can't load image... what's problem?

Answer

You should correct

<form action="/register/" method="post">

to

<form action="/register/" enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post">

handle the uploaded file with

request.FILES['avatar']

then find it in dir $upload_to,/home/dotcloud/data/media/photo
