Cannot upload files with forms created by CSS Form Builder

Cannot upload files with forms created by CSS Form Builder

Hi,

I am not sure whether this is a CSS Form Builder or Universal Email 4 problem.

I tried creating a contact form using CSS Form Builder and Universal Email 4 with a file field so a person could attach a file when filling in the contact form. However, I could not get it work correctly. Without the file field the form is correctly sent, however with the file field after clicking the submit button the contents of the form are redisplayed with the file field name blank.

As a test I created a form in CSS Form Builder which just has a File field. I then added the file manipulation upload behavior to the submit button. When I click submit the file field goes blank and I get a 'please select file' error message. No file is uploaded.

If i create the same form manually (not using CSS Form Builder) and add the file upload behavior the file uploads correctly.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards
Robert Andrews

I just tested and was able to create a form using CSS Form Builder and upload a file using Universal Email 4 with that form. Can you zip up and attach your form pages and upload behavior to your next response? Also, do you have the page on a hosted server so you can send me a url as well?

It looks like the required validation for the file field is the issue. You want to find the line of code that looks like this:
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateRQ((isset($_POST["fieldset_group_Filename"])?$_POST["fieldset_group_Filename"]:"") . "",true,1);

And modify it to look like this:
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateRQ((isset($_FILES["fieldset_group_Filename"]["name"])?$_FILES["fieldset_group_Filename"]["name"]:"") . "",true,1);

This will validate the file field correctly and upload the file as well. Sorry for the inconvenience this has caused. I'll log a bug for this, but for now you will have to make that change manually.
