Hi, I am using my form as an entry form for a motorsport event. It works great, but there's one thing I'd like to ask about (for now): We ask for a photo to be uploaded, which all works fine with no problems. But in the confirmation email that is sent to us (the organisers) and the entrant, it comes up with an error message in the text area for the file upload saying "You do not have permission to do that." See uploaded screenshot. I have found the place where I can edit the error message, but I'd prefer to figure out why it's displaying to make sure it's fixed properly. Any help would be appreciated. Justin, New Zealand

My best guess would be that there is a file sharing permission that needs to be opened up a bit more so that the directory where uploads go can be seen by the general public.

Thank you, I'll give that a try.
