    I have a form that takes in some details and then accepts 1 file upload.


    Although I marked the file upload widget as "required", I can still submit the form without uploading a file first. How do I make the form force the user to upload a file before submission?

    Thank you for pointing this out. This is obviously something that was left out by our developers. I will add this on our priority list.

    Good to hear it's been worked on. Please post when it's done (also would be great if the the forum app could email me when there is a new reply to a question).
