Support » Plugin: Custom Field Suite » Adding Files through CFS File field

  • Resolved Josh Levinson


    I am using CFS to add a field group with one custom field – a file upload. When I click the ‘add file’ button, and upload the file, there is never an option to ‘use this file’. I always have to ‘X’ out of the media uploader after I upload a file, and then click ‘add file’ again, go to gallery, and then the file has the option to ‘use this file’.

    Hi Josh,

    The issue isn’t occurring on my local machine. Could you browse to Field Groups > Tools, click on the “Debug” tab, and paste the contents of that box?

    Thanks for your quick reply.

    I just wrote a new blog post about troubleshooting. Could you run through it and let me know if you’re still experiencing the issue?


    I was wrong in my previous assessment of not having any buttons at all.

    When I add a file for the first time through the upload dialog, after it is finished uploading a ‘Insert into post’ button appears. Clicking on this button only results in the page loading, with no file being attached to the cf.

    I have switched themes back to twentytwelve with no success. I will try deactivating plugins.

    Marking this as resolved until I hear back from you.
