    deafult image if GET variable is not present

    Hey guys, I have a piece of code that enables me to show an image based on an id in the URL. My problem is, I want to show a default image if there is no ID given...Here is my code so far.

    Code:
    <a href="index.php?id=orange">link</a>
    PHP Code:
    <img src="http://www.website.co.uk/images/headers/<?php echo $_GET['id']; ?>_index.jpg" border="0">
    Hope I have explained myself properly

    Thanks in advance

    Lets assume the default image is called default_index.jpg, you could use this:

    PHP Code:
    <img src="http://www.website.co.uk/images/headers/<?php echo isset ($_GET['id']) ? $_GET['id'] : "default"?>_index.jpg" border="0">

    With a semi hard coded file path I very much doubt it unless someone has FTP access.
    My helpful sig is on vacation trying to loose some weight. It got a bit fat and caused a few problems but it will be back at some point!

    True, I do recommend the use of file_exists() as you say but I wouldn't worry about a remote person trying to display anything with a hard coded path is what I'm saying.
