    Send Post Data and Image Uploads

    Asked by grampers on October 28, 2013 at 02:52 PM

    I'm using Send Post Data to send form with image uploads to a custom php page. I know the images are being submited becasue they show up in a Dropbox directory. But on my custom php page I can't seem to get any image info which I would like to write the images to my server. /$_FILES['fieldnameofimage'] isn't there. 

    How can I capture and write the  images to my local server?

    Thank you for contacting us

    I think that we send the file name only, so that the file download URL can be manually constructed based on your username + formID + submissionID + file name.

    Example:

    www.jotform.com/uploads/Mike_T/33005661773957/248804947942326732/5.png

    Also, we send the file upload URLs with our Webhooks, so this might be easier way.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.

    Thank you - very helpful. With the image url you have noted, I can copy the 'downloaded image' to my local file system and display it on my website from there.

    @grampers,

    Yes you can do that, so that would be manually loading the image to your server so when you view the submitted form the images will be displayed.
