file upload feature and where does form info go

  1. Hi,
    I need a bit more information about the file upload feature.
    can I control the folder that the client uploads to?

    and when the client finally submits the information... where does it go and how do I receive it.
    Does it come to me as a text file or email?

    Thanks,
    Tracey

  2. By default, file uploads go to the WordPress wp-content/uploads folder in a folder that Gravity Forms creates. Files created using the Post Image field are also added to your Media Library just like any file you upload when creating a post.

    Files are not attached to notification emails. You can, however, include a full path link to the file that was uploaded in the notification email but they aren't included as an actual file attachment.

    So you can receive a link to the file via email if that is how you setup your email notifications, which are customizable and completely configured in the admin.

    It's possible to override the default file upload path using an API hook, but it is usually not necessary and this is for more advanced implementations.

  4. The easiest way to see how this works is to imagine that the form is just like the 'New Post' page in your WordPress admin.

    The title would be the title for that post, the body would be your main post body and your images would be as if you were adding images to the post through the media gallery.

    You would just have the title & body on there once, and then add as many images uploads as you want to have on there.

    On the form you would be able to choose if this post would be a draft, pending review or automatically be added to the site.

  5. Thanks for that info... but I actually want to know if I can have many posts on one form because I want my client to be able to send many posts in one form... is this possible?
    Thanks,

  6. I don't think that's possible, but I'm no expert. So best to wait to hear from one who is

  8. Gravity Forms is only designed to create one post at a time. We are planning on Advanced Post Creation add-on that would enable the ability to create multiple posts, but that won't be until after the 1.5 release and the add-ons we are currently developing (PayPal and User Creation) are out the door.

  9. Okay... so maybe I could this another way and create a form with let’s say 10 file uploads with text beneath each one?

    Is it possible to have several file upload buttons on one form and then a submit button which send every thing at once? ..... and

    when the files are sent to me, will there be a way of knowing which images come with which text box? I will set it up so that there is a file upload button, then a text box, a file upload button, then a text box, etc.

    Thanks,

    Tracey

  10. Yes, you can have multiple file upload fields on a form and you can add text fields under each of them. The order they appear in the form builder is the order in which the entry data will be stored. You can also use the field labels to name each one of them.
