All you need to do is add multiple File Upload buttons to your form. You can add as many as you wish.

Thanks for that Scott, but is there a way to select multiple files from the once upload button as the advertising suggests (seeing it actually says 'at once')? My clients may need to upload up to 15 files?

:(

Each upload has to be uploaded by clicking on the button. There is no way to select 15 files at once.

You can have your users zip their files up into one file. Put the instructions on your form. It's a simple selection of the files then right click and then click send to zip.:)
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Now it seems it won't attach the upload to the email notification? Is there another glitch with this software I don't know about yet?

Glitch? Those are fighting words! ;)

For each upload button you add to your form, go to the Properties Tab and check the appropriate options.

If that does not help, there is a permission issue on your server. With an FTP client, change the permissions of the Storage folder to 755 and try again.

Do you have to host the form on your own server to adjust the default "from:" address as per instructions at http://www.coffeecup.com/help/articles/ … m-builder/ ?

I have my form at http://www.fixtronix.ie/contact.htm hosted on S-Drive but I can not find the form.cfg.php file on the S-Drive either by FTP connection or on the A-Drive web interface on coffeecup.com

On a side-note, it should be something for a future update that the "from:" address can be the form submitters e-mail address by choice rather than having to edit form.cfg.php each time you revise/edit your form.

I get form data as being from form@coffeecup.com (I think) and I am sick having to copy/paste the originators e-mail address to then create a new e-mail when I want to reply.

When I used the old Coffeecup Flash form builder the e-mail with form content always came FROM the form originator and all I had to do was hit reply and respond directly. #Simples

Please make it so :)
