    Multiple File Upload Field does not work when Languages is enabled.

    Asked by avifaunistische_kommission on February 18, 2015 at 07:36 AM

    Hi there,

    I'm using a file upload in my form and need the user to enter a gps location (not the user's location, but a site chosen by the user). The only widget I found that can do so was "GPS Location".

    Unfortunately, when using the form I have to allow widgets.jotform.io to use my exact position (although this is not needed). By this, the file uploader doesn't work anymore. I tried it, and when I don't allow to use my position, the file uploader works.

    Does anyone have a solution for that? I didn't find an alternative location widget where the user can choose a position..

    This is the form: http://form.jotformeu.com/form/50477565450358

    Cheers, Markus

    I just did a quick test on my end, and the upload field is working fine along with the GPS location widget:

    But it would now work in your form, even in the cloned version I have in my account, I will keep doing some further testing, I will get back to you as soon as possible.

    After doing some further testing, I see the problem does not happen when the GPS Location widget is allowed, it happens when Languages is enabled:

    When you remove it:

    It works:

    I will report this to our second level, meanwhile, you can try disabling the Languages if you want to.

    Thanks a lot! Yes, with languages disabled it works. But would be great to have languages working...

    Cheers, Markus

    Hi Markus,

    I see that my colleague had already escalated this to our developers and I see that someone is already working on it for a fix. We will hear from them when there's any news.

    Apologies for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

    Are there any news in this issue?

    I try to use two languages in this form:


    but it disables the GPS Location widget.

    Generally, I don't need to localize people who are filling the form, I just need a way for the user to show a place on google maps. Does anyone know another widget that can do so?

    Cheers, Markus
