Bug?

    It looks like there is a problem when overall form validation fails, (e.g. some required field is left empty)

    Specifically, while the other "fields" retain their values, the "file" chosen using the Post Image field gets cleared out.

  2. This isn't a bug, it's how file upload fields work. We can't pre-populate this field, the browser won't allow us to for security reasons.

    If you could pre-populate an file upload file you could utilize that to get the user to upload files they didn't intend to upload via a hidden field.

    So for security reasons browsers do not allow file select fields to be pre-populated via code.
