In CSS Form builder, there are file manipulation behaviors, use the Upload File server behavior.

you will need to add a file form element to your page:
insert -> Form -> File Field

then add the upload file behavior:
Webassist -> File Manipulation -> Upload

Then to Email

Hey there Jason, what if we wanted to send that uploaded file as an email attachment to my clients?

that depends, there are 2 scenarios for sending an attachment:

1) if you only want to attach the file to the email, but not save it to the server:

In the Universal Email settings, go to the attachments settings section, select the Submitted File option and select the file field from your form

2) If you want to save the uploaded file to the server and send it as an attachment:

In the archived documentation section of the universal email support page, see the "Sending Email Attachments with Digital File Pro and Universal Email" tutorial

Downloading the Uploaded Files

Thanks Jason,. Now the Professor can upload files.

Now, after the professor uploaded that files I want to retrieved the files that I uploaded so

that the students can download that files for their lectures and reviewers.


I have a form with HTML Editor and File Field for the Uploading files. When the professor

announce to the section class and upload a file. In my recordset the there of

tbl_section_comments there is a column which is the section_upload. So that In every post

professor with uploaded file .. They can download that file.

My question is ... how can the student download that file ? (for example the professor

uploaded a "Reviewer.doc")

In the my recordset I want to appear that "Reviewer.doc" and then when I click that

"Reviewer.doc" I can download that file

THanks in Advanced :)

create a form with a hidden form element and a submit button.

set the value of the hidden form element to the file name that should be downloaded.

then apply the File Manipulation -> Download file behavior.

use the hidden form element for the file name.

Uploading File

Since i updated to CSS Form Builder i cannot seem to be able to upload files that are larger than 2Mb.

My client needs to upload large video to their site and this extension doesn't seem to be able to handle that.
Can someone help please

File Size restrictions are based on a server side setting, usually in php.ini. WA Extensions are installed locally to the development computer and do not impact the settings on the web server.

To increase the file upload size you need to edit your php.ini file.

upload_max_filesize = 64M
memory_limit = 96M
post_max_size = 64M

Change the values to whatever you require.

If you can't access a php.ini file you may need to contact your host to make these changes.

You may also be able to override the server settings using PHP and the ini_set command.
