that's right, it looks well.

So, you've got <input type="file" name="images" /> and when you add file to it, and then - submit form

you cannot get an access to the $_FILES variable


this variable doesn't exist at all? can you try with var_dump($_FILES) ?


can you for test purposes create other input in this form, for example: <input type="text" name="testinput" value="1" />

and then try with var_dump($_POST['testinput']); - does it work well?

i have solved that  instead of that 

<form name= "myform" enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post" action="add_product.php">

i put that 

<form name="myform" id="myform" action="{$request_uri|escape:'htmlall':'UTF-8'}" method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data">

everything is going well now
