    ahh action yes I get it now. I created a landing page for the form and put the short code there but it still won’t work properly. I see the short code in the browser. I notice that [cfdb-save-post-data] is not in the short code reference you provide. Any ideas as to what I’m doing wrong?
    Thank you in advance for any assistance you provide.

    Here’s the code for my simple test form:
    <form action=”http://you-get-real.com/thanks-for-registering” method=”post” enctype=”multipart/form-data”>
    <input type=”hidden” name=”Client_Registration” value=”People”/>
    First Name: <input type=”text” name=”fname” value=””/>
    Last Name: <input type=”text” name=”lname” value=””/>
    <input type=”file” name=”upload”/>
    <input type=”submit” />

    Here’s what I have on the action page
    Thanks for Registering.

    try just this:
    not this:

    Also edit the post in the WP HTML (Not visual) tab and ensure that you have “[” and not some URL-encoded character.

    And one more thing, the problem is you named the short code wrong (My fault, I have it wrong in the documentation!)

    It is:


    That did it. It didn’t make any sense to me but now it does. The short-code appeared because it was not short-code.
