For the discount, use our code: WPBVIP

For this tutorial, we will be using WPForms Pro which you can purchase using the link above. Install and activate the plugin, and in the settings add the license key to verify your product. Finally, for this tutorial you will go under WPForms and into the Addons area to activate the Form Templates Pack Addon.

We will go into WPForms, Add New and name our new form what we want, and we will scroll down to select the file upload template. Select it and WPForms will create a form for you with pre-populated fields that you can decide to use or not. These will include an upload field, comments, and other fields that are normally included in this type of form.

You can delete any fields you don't want to use or if you select a field, on the left-hand side you will have options available for editing the field to display how you want. For the upload section, you can limit to certain file types and allow multiple files if you wanted.

For this guide, we will check the box to store files in the WordPress Media Library so the files are saved on your site itself. In the general settings for the form, we'll set the admin email address, the subject, and decide if we send them to a thank you page or send a thank you message.

    Great video!! I’m badly stuck on one thing … I create short one minute after effects templates which I have in my site were a person chooses one for me to edit.. as this takes a couple of days to edit, I need to put this one minute video up on my site so my client can view to download… but how can I do this? I see on fiverr they have a page for people to download the finished product by clicking a link
