    Default Form handler component and attached picture

    I'm making an form which will be email only (no uploadings to the server)
    and I want that people can send picture from their own computer together
    with another form fields.

    I used Field Type "File selector" and it gives to me possibility to choose
    file from my computer ("Browse...") but when form is sent, there is no file
    attachement with it.

    What am I doing wrong here?

    Kimmo,

    I had a similar problem and the only way I could get it to work was to
    complete the File Upload Folder contained a valid location for the file
    to be uploaded to. So I made a folder on the server called UPLOADED and
    entered ../uploaded in the properties box.

    Hi Paul and thank you for the answer,

    So you never got it working via email only? It would be so simple just to
    get them via email, without any uploading to server.

    I'm expecting lots of pictures and if people can just upload them to server
    with no connection to the form itself, it's not so easy to find which
    picture belongs to who as they'll never name them correctly.

    Damn, probably better to tell them to send pictures via email totally
    separately from the form...

    Bw

    Kimmo,

    No, no...it does email the files but it also puts them on the server. I
    thought the upload to the server was required before it would email. As
    it ended up working (emails sent with attached file) I left it
    alone...if it ain't broke don't fix it!!

    Try adding that upload bit and see what happens. Happy to test your form
    when you are ready!
