I've got A&M forms set up and I'm trying to get a assets field to upload files.

My current form code is below. If I remove the first line then the form works correctly but I can't get a file upload to work without it as I am unable to figure out how to manually code the file upload field.

My current commented out code for the file was cribbed from a previous ExpressionEngine install and uses some Javascript to allow styling of the field. Everything seems to work here as I can upload a file but due to the internal server error on submit I can't be sure.

Without line 1 the form works but I can't get file uploads. How do I resolve this?

{% set form = craft.amForms.getForm('requestQuote') %}

<form method="post" accept-charset="UTF-8" class="form-horizontal contact-form">
{# This should always be here! #}
<input type="hidden" name="action" value="amForms/submissions/saveSubmission">

{# Insert your forms handle. #}
<input type="hidden" name="handle" value="requestQuote">

{# Optional: Redirect URL. Will redirect to current page by default. #}
<input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="contact/thankyou">

{# Optional: Anti-spam protection. #}
  {{ craft.amForms.displayAntispam() }}

  {# Optional: Google reCAPTCHA protection. #}
  {{ craft.amForms.displayRecaptcha() }}

  <fieldset class="row">

  • The underlying error message for the 500 Internal Server Error is either going to be logged in craft/storage/runtime/logs if Craft generated it, or your web server's error logs if your web server generated it.

  • The server error log is empty on my host but I'm not sure what to look for in the /logs file for Craft.

  • Nuke the logs, reproduce the issue, then search for [error] in the craft.log files or in the phperrors.log if you have that one, too.

  • Maybe it helps if you add enctype="multipart/form-data"to the form tag? See (github.com/am-impact/amforms/issues/64) Oct 26 '16 at 22:25
  • @WolframGehring Can you add that as an answer so I can mark it correct. Thanks.

If you want to upload assets with your form, you will need to include enctype="multipart/form-data" in your form tag: <form method="post" accept-charset="UTF-8" enctype="multipart/form-data" ...
