By default, the Contact Form module doesn't include a File Upload option. The types of fields that are avaiable by default for the Contact Form module are:

  • Input Field

  • Email Field

  • Textarea Field

  • Checkbox Field

  • Radio Buttons

  • Select field

To be able to have access to a File Upload option, we can install the Divi Contact Form Helper plugin.

Using Divi Contact Form Helper to add a File Upload option

  1. Install and activate the Divi Contact Form Helper plugin.

  2. Open the Contact Form module and add a new field.

  3. Set the field's ID - use only English characters and no spaces.
    - Incorrect field id: This is my field ID
    - Correct field id: this_is_my_field_id
