    Hello,

    I have a web form with file upload limited to pdf files. It uploads zero kb files and gives no error message to the user. Any ideas? WP 2.9.2 /GF 1.3.11. OS X / Firefox 3.6 & Safari 4.

  2. You need to check the file permissions for the wp-content/uploads folder are set to CHMOD 755. If Gravity Forms is able to write to this area it should create a gravityforms folder where it stored the uploads. If file uploads aren't working it is always a server related issue, usually file permissions.

    Hello,

    I just recreated the form field and it now seems to work fine. It wasn't the chmods, that was the problem. Future suggestions:
    *Better error messages on file uploads
    *Progress bar when uploading files

  4. We are limited by what we can with the built in PHP file uploader. In the future we plan on introducing a more advanced uploader.
