I want to add a value to this input file from mysql, This (echo $rows['image']:) should get data from mysql.Is that possible to add values to input file like adding values to text because i have this code works fine with no problem
<input type="text" name="title"  value="<?php echo $rows['title']; ?>">

There is no different but the first one gets nothing from database and the second one has no problem

there is no problem with text type attribute it will print the value. file type attribute is used to send files. Why you need to add value of $row['image'] in that? i guess $row['image'] will return nothing but a binary image file?

If you dont want to upload the file again why you need to add this? you can simply accomodate place for only title/news which will be edited after form submission and remove the <input type='file'....

then make your image upload part optional. means if user does not submit any file dont execute the upload part if they submit a file execute upload part. same you can done with other field if user does not give any input dont update the text to database else update it.

You should have write the minimal amount of code to run the script efficently if the script need that. Did you think about that if you echo the image in it everytime it will be also loaded into the page and will increase the file size. regardless of user using it or not and then again re uploading it. What is you saying is quite unfamiliar way of i am not sure about it. but i dont think it will be the best choice to do that.

In joomla CMS, you add article images to a specific folder 'stories', within that you can add subfolders, and add images to those, if the user has authorization, the user can edit from the front end, and access these, or upload new images, and then add these to the article, or just edit the article itself. The user can be assigned about four different user authorization level from the backend user manager, which controls what the user can do, when it comes to editing any articles.I would have thought the other cms would work on a similar setup.
