[Plugin: Contact Form 7 to Database Extension] Saving image attachments to database (6 posts)

    I'm using version 3.1 of Fast Secure Contact Form and version 2.2.4 of CFDB on a version 3.3 WP installation. Attached files are being sent via email but are not being saved to the database. I've looked at past topics and see the instruction that the 'File is attached: xxx.jpg' entry in the database should be clickable, but it is not. Do you know how to fix this issue? Thanks in advance - the plugins are awesome, save this one issue!

    I got the same problem, but I cant find a simple solution (I'm not an expert). Would like to hear the solution.

    And where does the actual uploaded attachment placed on the server? I cannot find it, or how to pogram?

    FSCF says it deletes the attachment after emailing it, IIRC.

    There are a couple of settings to check. It is working for me now. The attachment is deleted from the folder si-contact-form/attachments after it is sent to the database. It is stored in the MySQL table [wp_]cf7dbplugin_submits as a binary blob.

    It did seem not to be working at first, but I may just have missed saving a setting. These are the ones to check:

    • Dashboard / Plugins / FS Contact Form Options / Data Export: (form [1]) / Enable data export after the message
    • Dashboard / Plugins / FS Contact Form Options / Database Options
      Click save here just to sure.

    And... if you want to look the code, debug, etc., see:
    Which links to a very clear API-type document:
    And you can search for those hooks in FSCF.
