UE4 File attachment not working

UE4 File attachment not working

I expect this is something I'm just not doing right but here is the problem:

I have a form that submits details to an email (works fine)

I also have a file upload field for a file to be attached and no file is being attached.

I've attached the files in question.

I'm assuming that an existing WA_DigitalFilePro folder is not used in this but, if it is, then it just contains the HelperPHP.php file which was last updated on March 3rd. This file does reside on the server.

Many thanks for any pointers.

Your form has to use enctype="multipart/form-data" in order to upload the file properly.

On the subject of attachments - can UE4 do multiple attachments - without knowing how many 'potential' file fields your likely to need.
ie. Pretty cumbersome to make a form with 20 file fields - especially when a client decides they want to send 21 attachments.

Example
I have a client who runs an accident repair shop
they send images of cars to insurers - that might be 1 shot - that might be 20?

There were no major enhancements to the file upload capabilities themselves in this release.

Are you going to store the attachments in the database? It would seem you could set up a page where you uploaded one at a time with one field and could upload as many as you want.

What is the workflow you are hoping for? You can probably get it done by using digital file pro creatively without that feature being added.

Exactly as above

client has 1 to 20 photos
url pointing to upload (attachment) stored in DB
images uploaded to server

We don't have a specific wizard to do that for you, but it seems like you could design something that uploads one file at a time but allows as many as you need or want. Look at how the popular web based email programs handle file uploads. Usually you click a button to start uploading files... it takes you to a dedicated page with just an upload field and a list of uploaded files so far (initially blank)... you upload as many files as you want, one at a time, then click done to go back to the original page... that is how I would do it.
