Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 » file attachment not working as required

  • Resolved dr.techy


    I have a form with file attachment field. I have set the field as required.

    for example… [file* file-name …..] but on the front end when users submit the form, the submission goes successfully even without any attachment. Whereas i want the form to give error messsage if no file is attached with the form.

    How to solve this please help!! Thanks.

    What do you have in the Form tab panel?

    This is the content of the form. I have removed the styling from the code.

    <label>Institue Name<em>*</em></label>
    [text* InstituteName default:user_nickname readonly]
    <label>Institute Email ID<em>*</em></label>
    [email* InstituteEmail default:user_email readonly]
    <label>First Name of Institute Incharge<em>*</em></label>
    [text* NameOfIncharge default:user_first_name readonly]
    <label>Last Name</label>
