    The wizard of this widget requires a PUBLIC KEY. 

    I have set Encrypt Form Data  to NO in Jotform.

    I have tried in my WP page to set a <head> containg this ( as advised on https://uploadcare.com/documentation/widget/) to include as follow:

    <head>

    <script src="https://ucarecdn.com/widget/2.9.0/uploadcare/uploadcare.full.min.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

     

    <script>

        UPLOADCARE_PUBLIC_KEY = 'demopublickey';

    </script>

    </head>

     

     

    <script src="https://form.myjotform.com/jsform/61702402529550" type="text/javascript"></script>

     

    I am now STUCK -- LOL, total newby but would love to know what to do ! -- I suspect I need a PUBLIC KEY and then go for treatment for a nervous breakdown !

    Kindly advise  ( WP.org site -- www.153.co.za )

    Regards

    You will need an account in Uploadcare.com to be able to have a Public key that you will use to activate the uploadcare widget.

     

    You need to open your form https://www.myjotform.com/form/61702402529550, add the public key, and the save the form.

    This should activate the widget then. 

    Let us know if still not resolve.

    Thanks.

    Perfect -- got it and it works BUT -- after testing I found the following

    (1)   Free version allows ONLY pictures to be uploaded

    (2)   Uploaded files is NOT part of the DRIVE integration ( links are supplied but actual uploaded are NOT in my DRIVE and apparently are deleted after one month) -- (not sure but Not what I wanted - it creates extra work to download subscribers' uploaded docs and then save them to Client's file/folder in DRIVE)

    So.. using JotForm's own upload facilities and eventually found it is PERFECT !

    I have one more question but will open a new request for that thanks

    Thank you for your kind assistance!
