Topic: File Upload Plugin not submitting multiple files to server

sharksmedia priority asked 8 months ago


Hello Support Team

Expected behavior
All uploaded files available via $_FILES object server-side.

Actual behavior
When setting data-mdb-multiple="true" no files is submitted to the server when the form containing the file-upload field is submitted.

I have verified that the server is able to recieve multiple files at once using a browser default upload field. (See screenshot)

Running the following code snippet after selecting files, just reveals an empty FileList object.

document.querySelector("#dnd-multiple-files").files

I have also tried setting the 'multiple' attribute manually, but that doesn't help either.

Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.)

I am currently unable to provide a link to the implementation page, as it is not for public viewing, I can provide access to the site if done so privately.

Can you please assist us in finding out what might be the problem, or provide us with a fix so we can upload multiple files.

Kind Regards
- Allan

Hello Grzegorz

Thank you for your response. upgrading the library version worked !

Turns out I had downloaded 'MDB5-Standard-UI-KIT-Pro-Advanced-3.9.0' instead of 'MDB5-Standard-UI-KIT-Pro-Advanced-3.11.0'

Downloading and installing the latter version fixed the issue for me.

Kind Regards

This was fixed a while ago: https://mdbootstrap.com/docs/standard/getting-started/changelog/#v3-10-0

Make sure you are using the latest version of the file upload plugin (2.0.1)
