• Hi support,
    I’ve implemented multiline file like this:
    [multilinefile infas-upl limit:3mb filetypes:pdf|doc|docx|txt|rtf|odt id:infas-upl class:infas-upl “Anlage hinzufügen”]

    Unfortunately the filetype restriction does not work.

    When using simple CF7 [file] the restriction works.

    Could you please give me a hint?

    thanks in advance, Torsten

    Hello divyeshk71,
    thanks for your answer! Does the plugin generally support file restrictions and error messages? I would also buy the pro version if it works for me.

    Hello @marusic

    Could you please provide the page link So we can check the error?


    Sorry, it’s in development, so it’s only on my localhost, but there is no error thrown, either php or js, it just allows all files all the time.

    This is the shortcode:

    [multilinefile evidencefiles limit:131072 filetypes:pdf|docx “Select file”]

    But I can add anything:


    Any ideas?

    Until this is fixed, if anyone needs fast solution – I just hardcoded it:

    inside span.mfcf7-zl-multiline-sample there is input[type=”file”] which is missing “accept” attribute. So just add it using js or php. I added it in php, and everything works fine (also fixed form’s <lable> tag while I’m at it 🙂 :

        echo do_shortcode('[contact-form-7 id="567"]'); 
        $cof = ob_get_clean();
        $cof = str_replace('<input type="file" name="evidencefiles[]"','<input type="file" accept=".pdf,.doc,.docx" name="evidencefiles[]"',$cof);
        $cof = str_replace('<lable>','<label>',$cof);
        $cof = str_replace('</lable>','</label>',$cof);
        echo $cof;

    Thank you for your instant solutions.

    But have you checked the file restriction after clicking on submit button?

    Please let me know. Thanks.
