    With the help of the plugin author, I just (this morning) got the attachment feature working on one of my sites. I'll step through the process I followed and hopefully it can help you. Follow this in order!

    1. From the dashboard, click Contact, then select the form. In the Form section (top left), enter <[file ACT_scores filetypes:gif|png|jpg|jpeg|pdf 30/] <span style="font-size:12px;"> Copy of ACT scores</span>. Not to insult your intelligence, but following 'file' is the name of the document (in my case ACT_scores. Note that it is one word). The filetypes is optional, but can be used to restrict the file extension(s) you want. The 30/ is optional and it sets the width of the input field, the length of what is enters can be any length. Add as many of these as you want (I have 6 required files).

    2. Then, scroll down to File attachments: under Mail. Enter each attachment enclosed within a pair of <strong>[</strong> and <strong>]</strong>. Example on my setup is <strong>[ACT_scores]</strong>. If you have more than one attachment, simple place the second right after the first (i.e. <strong>[ACT_scores]</strong> <strong>[SAT_scores]</strong>.

    The Form area code for my attachments is:

    `<strong>Attachments</strong>: (all documents can be scanned and saved or typed and saved)
      1. [file ACT_scores filetypes:gif|png|jpg|jpeg|pdf 30/] <span style="font-size:12px;"> Copy of ACT scores</span>
      2. [file SAT_scores filetypes:gif|png|jpg|jpeg|pdf 30/] <span style="font-size:12px;"> Copy of SAT scores</span>
      3. [file HS_transcript filetypes:gif|png|jpg|jpeg|pdf 30/] <span style="font-size:12px;"> Copy of High School transcript</span>
      4. [file essay filetypes:doc|docx|pdf 30/] <span style="font-size:12px;"> Typed essay (length 1/2 to 1 page)</span>
      5. Two letters of recommendation
          a. [file letter_1 filetypes:doc|docx|pdf|txt 30/] <span style="font-size:12px;"> Faculty member with knowledge of applicant's<br />
                academic achievements</span>
          b. [file letter_2 filetypes:doc|docx|pdf|txt 30/] <span style="font-size:12px;"> Individual with knowledge of applicant's<br />
                leadership qualities and potential</span>
      6. [file photo filetypes:gif|png|jpg|jpeg|pdf 30/] <span style="font-size:12px;"> Photo of applicant in JROTC uniform</span>' and the <strong>File attachments</strong> code is : [ACT_scores] [SAT_scores] [HS_transcript] [letter_1] [letter_2] [photo].

    If you read the docs that come with CF7, all will make sense - eventually.

    Hope this helps. If it does, do something that is helpful to someone else.

    Don't know if that got posted or not, but . . . .

    Send me an email <dave@customalpha.com> and I'll send you my phone number so we can communicate directly rather than this way. I'm a little reluctant to post my phone number here.
