Not required FILE UPLOAD is requried

Post by cmsintent » Sun Jun 13, 2021 5:47 pm

Good Morning Pablo

I have a form located at https://www.iwantwireless.ca/careers.php

I have a FILE UPLOAD to be sent as an attachment to the form results.

For the FILE UPLOAD > Validate ... I do not have the "Data required (the user must specify a filename)" checked - with the intent that is optional.

But ... the form will not send unless a file is attached. If no file is attached then I am sent to the error page.

If you add validation to the File Upload then input is required.

Just a wild (rose) guess here, since I can't see what options you have configured, but I noticed that you are enforcing the type of docs which are acceptable for upload, like "doc, docx, pdf, etc", so perhaps the form now "requires" one of these??

Hi Pablo ... does MGD4me's response make since ... because I am limiting the type of file formats this creates the required status?
