Why don't I receive any of the form data along with the files?
You need to enter the message you'd like to be sent. You can do this via the "Settings" page in the admin section. Click on Settings and scroll to the (near) bottom. Enter the message you'd like to send in "Autoresponder Template". You can also intersperse form field data by using the name of the form field between percentage signs. For example,
thanks for the submission made on %%%DATE%%%
Why does "You did not select any files" show up when I do select a file?
You must ensure the name of your file input fields are in the following format :
<input type="file" name="FILE1">
The value of each name must be in UPPERCASE and must contain a unique number and nothing else.
Can I have the submitter's IP address sent to me and/or recorded?
Yes, use any of the following markers in the Admin Notification template :
as well as any of the form field names used in your forms.
How do I require fields in my custom forms?
This option is only available in version 1.4 and later. If you're using an earlier version, send us your order id and we'll send you your free update!
<input type="Hidden" name="required" value="fname,lname">
Enter the name of each required field in the value attribute. Each field must be separated by a comma and no spaces should be used.
How do I set the subject sent in the Autorseponders?
You can set the subject by using a hidden form field in your forms. E.g.
<input type="hidden" name="subject" value="My Subject">
Can a User select a recipient from a list to direct Admin notifications to?
Yes, by adding a field named "toemail" to your forms, the User can override the Admin email Setting defined in the Form's Settings. For example :
<input type="Text" name="toemail" value="firstname.lastname@example.org">
The Regular Version of Attachment Mailer does not support multiple recipients, see the Plus version if multiple notifications are required. Correlative names can be assigned for each email address by using a field named "toname".
<input type="Text" name="toname" value="Mark Thompson, Lisa Williams">
Both of these fields can also be defined as drop down select menus, or radio buttons allowing Users to select from multiple recipients. For example :
What is the first select menu I see when I log in?
This select menu lists every public folder on your server. Selecting a folder refreshes the page and lists the files contained within that folder. You can then select these files to send as attachments.
How do I select a default folder for the "Tree" select menu?
From the "Settings" page, you can enter the full path to the folder you'd like to use as the default. Each time you log in, the default folder's contents are displayed. Any files sent to you as attachments are also uploaded to your default folder.
Where do I enter the email address that attachments should be sent to?
Click on "Settings" from the admin control panel. Scroll down to "Admin e-mail" and enter the email address.
Why can't I upload files?
If you receive the following error:
One or more files failed to upload. The reasons returned are:
Error: Could not open new file on server. No such file or directory
or similar, go to the admin Settings page and scroll down to "Default Folder". Enter a path to a folder that you want files uploaded to (the default path will be your server's root path, so you should just append a folder name to it). Then create the folder if it doesn't already exist. Then CHMOD that folder to 777. If you're on a Windows server, you may need to have your host set full read/write permissions for that folder.
