Allow users to send attachments via Contact This Advertiser / Seller form

With DJ-Classifieds, you can easily allow users to send attachments to advert author. This can be useful, for example, when there's a job offer, and the candidate wants to provide his CV. There are many other ways to use this feature, but I think this example is best. 


First, you need to setup DJ-Classifieds to allow sending the attachments and decide what file formats you will allow being sent.

Go to Components -> DJ-Classifieds -> Options and open the Views tab and scroll down to Advert View section. 

Here you'll find 3 options you need to set to get this feature working:

  • File in ask seller form - set it to "Yes."
  • Ask seller form file - allowed types - type file formats you want to allow to be sent. 
  • Ask seller form file - max size - choose the max file size. 


How it works

When all is set up, when the user uses the form to contact the advertiser, he'll be introduced with the option to attach a file.

This file, along with a message from the form, will be then sent by email to the advertiser.
