It's not possible to do that natively. People seem to be using this: https://github.com/stvnthomas/CodeIgniter-Multi-Upload

use for loop to upload more than one image at a time

controller

Code:
function demo(){
  
  if($this->input->post('Submit')){
     for($i=1;$i<=6;$i++)
   {
      if($_FILES['photo_'.$i]['name']!=''){
       //upload thumbnail      $c
     $config['upload_path'] = 'Your folder path';
     $config['allowed_types'] = 'gif|jpg|jpeg|png';
     $config['file_name'] = '0'.$i;
     $config['max_size'] = '150';    
     $this->load->library('upload');
     $this->upload->initialize($config);
     if ( ! $this->upload->do_upload('photo_'.$i))
     {
      $data['alert'] = $this->upload->display_errors();
      
     }
     else
     {
      $upload_data = $this->upload->data();
      $filename = $upload_data['file_name'];
      $width = $upload_data['image_width'];
      $height = $upload_data['image_height'];
      $config1 = array();
      $this->load->library('image_lib');
      $config1['source_image'] = 'your folder/'.$filename;
      if($width>762){
       //resize image
       $sizes = array('width' => $width, 'height' => $height, 'new_width' => 762, 'new_height' => 325);
       $newsize = array();
       $newsize = $this->image_lib->size_calculator($sizes);
       $config1['maintain_ratio'] = FALSE;
       $config1['width'] = $newsize['new_width'];
       $config1['height'] = $newsize['new_height'];
       $this->image_lib->initialize($config1);
       $this->image_lib->resize();
       $this->image_lib->clear();
      }
                                                // creating thumb
      $config1['maintain_ratio'] = FALSE;
      $config1['width'] = 762;
      $config1['height'] = 325;
      $config1['create_thumb'] = TRUE;
      $config1['thumb_marker'] = 'thumb_';
      $this->image_lib->initialize($config1);
      $this->image_lib->resize();      
      $this->Your model->save_image('photo_'.$i,$filename);
      $data['alert'] = 'image uploaded';
     }
      }
    }
    $data['image'] = $this->Yoourmodel->get_homepage(); // select photos
    $this->load->view('your view', $data);
      
  }else{
    $this->load->view('your view', $data);
  }
}

model

Code:
function save_image($field,$filename=''){
  
    if($filename!=''){
   $data[$field] = $filename;
  }
  $this->db->where('id',1);// item  id
  $this->db->update('home',$data);
}

I don't think that's what the OP means. I suspect he has an upload field with the multiple="" attribute, meaning you can select any number of files from the file picker window, and they are uploaded in an array.

Bigil you need to have a look at this extended library :

https://github.com/stvnthomas/CodeIgniter-Multi-Upload


you are doing way to much work to upload multiple files.

Literally with this library all you have to do is :

Code:
name="file[]"

$this->upload->do_multi_upload('file');

and your done.

Heres a more in depth look at some of my code to further assist any one else looking into doing multiple uploads with a single form field.

as Fuzzy said with one form field just use

Code:
multiple=""

then do :
Code:
$this->load->library('upload'); // Load Library

   $this->upload->initialize(array( // takes an array of initialization options
       "upload_path" => "/usr/local/var/www/Test/ci/uploads/",
       "overwrite" => TRUE,
       "encrypt_name" => TRUE,
       "remove_spaces" => TRUE,
       "allowed_types" => "txt|pdf",
       "max_size" => 300,
       "xss_clean" => FALSE
   )); // These are just my options. Also keep in mind with PDF's YOU MUST TURN OFF xss_clean

   if ($this->upload->do_multi_upload("files")) { // use same as you did in the input field
       $return = $this->upload->get_multi_upload_data(); // then just use function from the extended library

in my case I had to do this for a email system which Fuzzy helped me on so then do this :

Code:
foreach ($return as $file) { // loop over the upload data
    $this->email->attach($file['full_path']); // attach the full path as an email attachments :D
       }

enjoy.
