How to add a file upload field (element) to your WordPress form so that users can upload single or multiple images and documents at once.
The File upload element allows users to select an image or document from their device (mobile or desktop) for upload. This can be useful to gather additional information based on the use case of your WordPress form. For instance, if you own a car repair company and you want a customer to upload detailed photo's of the damage, they could do so via the File upload element. An example of how this would look on the front-end can be seen below:
