Multiple file upload using jQuery and PHP

This tutorial shows how easy it is to upload multiple files using jQuery and PHP.

I have used jQuery MultiFile Plugin for this purpose.

The input type file should have name in list format like “pic[]” and the class name of the input should be “multi”.

Below is the complete code for multiple file upload

For more multi-file upload examples, see:

Hope it helps. Thanks.

    Is there a way to customize the script in order to have the ability to select more than one pic at the time (ie. by pressing the shift key) ?
    Thanks in advance,

    I have a possible solution to this by adding the following link in the html part:

    The issue that I’m facing now is that the list of the selected files contains only the first one.
    Is there a way to append the rest of the filenames to the list? I have tried looping through the list.append , addToList etc..with no luck.
    Any ideas really appreciated!
