Can't Upload and download on the same page

Can't Upload and download on the same page

I just discovered that you cannot have an upload form and a list of the downloads on the same page. Why?

Downloads would always want to download the actual php page instead of the file. Soon as I commented out the Upload form the Downloads worked.

Most likely the upload and download behaviors are using the same trigger.


You will need to use a unique trigger for the upload and the download behavior in order for them to work on the same page.

Thats what I figured but no dice. I tried setting each one to trigger on the specific button press even and it still didn't work.

I can't send a copy because its an internal government site. I will try recreating it with different data on my own server.

the issue in this file is that you have bound the download to use the doc_file file field as the download file source, you can only download a file that exists on the server.


Another issue is that The doc_file file field is not part of the same form as the download button that triggers the download.

But the file does exist on the server ... and the download is set to a hidden field in the download form exactly like your instructions say.

If I comment out the upload form the download works perfectly.
