Attachment option

Would it be very difficult to add an option for a person to attach a file to the contact form?

That would depend on what tools you have and/or how much experience you have with file uploads in combination with the exact user experience you intend to implement. It is possible, but how difficult is very difficult to determine.

Seemed like a straightforward question. I have quite a few tools (many WA) whatever you're referring to but obviously not sure where to start adding flexibility for someone to attach a doc, pdf, or image file along with their message and all be in the email sent. If you want me to be more specific, tell me how to do that for you and I will. I'm getting a sense pretty quickly after purchasing the 'solution pack' that while helpful, there are several solutions it doesn't provide me but perhaps could be added to future versions.

To do this most easily you would use an upload extension like Digital File Pro to handle uploading the file to the server, and use Universal Email to add that uploaded file as an attachment.

OK, I have both of these but have not used them to any extent yet. I'll look into that further. Thank you.

I am also working on attaching a picture to a contact form. I just want to attach the picture to the email message. I can upload the file but not sure how to attach to the message? "Type (or select) Filename: <input type="file" name="uploadFile">"
I have Digital File Pro but seems like over kill to create a MySQL database to hold the pictures.

Digital File Pro doesn't require you to use a database. Just use Digital File Pro to upload the image, and use Universal Email to add it as an attachment. No database necessary.
