This is less a technical question, and more a ’how would you do it’ question that I’m hoping the more experienced users may have some advice on… (I still think its a valid question for this forum)
I’m creating a Flash application which allows users to upload an image, and then add a product to the shopping basket with that image on it (WPeC plugin is my shopping basket - I'm going to need to add a product to my shopping basket from within the flash application).
My problem is this… many users will upload images, but not all will actually complete the order. When a user orders a product, I need to know which image on my server is their image!
I thought about naming each image uploaded with the users Session Id, then when someone orders a customised product I would somehow find the session id and match them up.
I ruled this out because a user might upload 3 or 4 images – each image would have the same Session Id so I wouldn’t be able to tell which image they wanted to use.
Knowing what I’m trying to do, do you have any advice on how to go about this? Before I even start to work out the technical side of things I’d like to get a plan together of matching images to orders.
PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN!
