    Is there a way to hide uploaded files form file upload question with allow multiple?

    Asked by pictureperfectalbums on January 20, 2015 at 08:01 PM

    Hi there,

    I have an image upload form: http://www.jotform.com//?formID=50197718163257

    It's embedded in a iframe on my website. My problem is that users might uploaded a lot of files, making the form longer. I've made the iframe as big as possible but I still worry it's not big enough. 

    Is there a way for the form to not show the uploaded files? 

    Thank you!

    Yes it is possible to hide the list of uploaded files by injecting custom css code in form but I am not sure if that is the right way to do this. If the list of uploads are not displayed, how the users will know which file they have selected?

    Anyway, please inject the following custom css code in form to hide the list of file uploads:

    ul.qq-upload-list {

    display: none;


    The following guide should help you on how to inject custom css code in form:  http://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes 

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    Thank you Ashwin, 


    I know, hiding this will prevent users from knowing what they uploaded. But I think it would be difficult to figure it out anyways since they would be uploading between 80-120 files. I would prefer they upload the same file twice. 

    Thank you for your quick answer.
