    We have a form that let's users create content on our site. The form adds to a custom post type via:

    add_filter("gform_post_data", "update_post_type", 10, 2);
    function update_post_type($post_data, $form){
    
        if($form["id"] == '7'){
            $post_data["post_type"] = "found-birds";
        } else if($form["id"] == '5'){
            $post_data["post_type"] = "lost-birds";
        }
        return $post_data;
    }

    When users upload a photo, it does not get attached to the post. It isn't even added to the uploads folder (organized by month/date).

    This just suddenly stopped working, probably after a recent update (site owners do plugin updates so not sure if this is true). We had this form working for a long time without issue.

  5. It appears you used the file upload field type rather than the Image field. I duplicated your forms and then added an image upload field. The image was uploaded, stored with the entry and appeared in the post.

    I removed my duplicate forms, reversed my changes which were made to your theme's functions.php, but left the test post where the image was inserted properly into the post. You will find it here: ?post_type=lost-birds&p=34522&preview=true

    I think if you change the file upload field to an image upload field it will work for you. I am unsure of why it was working before with the file upload field.
