Update 2:

Okay, I'm calling this a BUG.  I see the problem on two completely separate and independent websites that I own.  I think the last Formidable Forms update has a bug.


Update 1:

There's something weird going on here.  I created a completely NEW form...unrelated to the other form (below).  The upload field also shows "Required upload size: 134.22MB" (server size limit).

Is this a bug with Formidable Forms??


Original Post:

See screenshot below. Originally, my form simply defaulted to saying the "Maximum Upload Size = 134MB" (server limit).  Now that has changed and says the "Required Upload Size = 134MB".  Where did that change come form?  What could I have done to make it do that?

For testing purposes, I went back and specified a Max Limit in the upload field's parameters to 25MB...now it says that.

Why has it flipped from stating maximum to a required minimum?   There is no minimum specified.   I'm going bald scratching my head over this.

I have worked for hours researching this.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thank you.

I don't see what you're seeing, but I do find it odd that the FF knowledgebase has text and a screenshot showing a Field Option for "Min file size" and I can't get that option to appear. See https://formidableforms.com/knowledgebase/file-upload/#kb-file-size-limits

Anyway, if you have a reproducible case, file a bug via your support account. They make it easy to do.

I just updated all my Formidable plugins and now I see the Minimum File Setting. I also see "required" now as well. I agree that it's a bug because I can see how it could say "required" if both the min and max were filled in, however, if only one is filled in, it should read "minimum required" or "maximum required".
