Easy Contact Forms
Instruction for upload function? (11 posts)

    I'm trying to use the upload function in my form. Unfortunately there are now instructions in the FAQ, the tutorials or this forum. At least, I couldn't find them ;)

    The problem I'm having is that when I add this function to my form I see a red box with the text 'Cannot create folder /'

    In the general settings I found 'File folder', is this where I can specify where the files are being uploaded to? Do I have to use a full path here? Or relative to the root? Or relative to something else?
    I've tried a few options, but the warning remains. When I use the form it says it's uploading after I press submit, but I don't receive it with the rest of the form.

    So some explanation about this (great!) new function would be nice. I have already submitted a support ticket, but I haven't received a conformation, so maybe something went wrong? Or I have to be more patient :)

    I think i found the solution for this.

    There is 39 line in a file easy-contact-forms-appconfigdata.php:

    DEFINE('EASYCONTACTFORMS__fileUploadDir', ABSPATH . 'wp-content/plugins/easycontact_templates' . $ds . EASYCONTACTFORMS__fileFolder);

    so i created folder /wp-content/plugins/easycontact_templates/files

    file uploads are working correctly now.

    Well, I was so hapy to find the solution to the errormessage that I got, but now the upload-button doesn´t seem to work.

    I can select a file, but than nothing happens? Anybody has an idea what is going wrong?

    once you have created the folder you need to make sure it has write permissions that will hopefully solve your upload problems

    I checked agatin, but the folder hat writing permission (777), so that doesn´t seem to be the problem.

    Same problem here, I created older /wp-content/plugins/easycontact_templates/files and set permissions to 777, but the upload would not start to upload the selected file and there is no result in the files-folder. Any hints?

    Please who knows where file uploads are sent to and if file uploads can be directly attached into the email instead of having to download it again from the link provided within the email the plugin sends and please how to change the upload button to a native html file(browse) button instead of the fancy one present.
