Hello Odoo Community,

I modified contact us form by adding upload image and website field.

If i upload image in the back end everything is fine. But if i want to upload image on website (contact us form) and send the form all the custom field details goes through like website, but image don’t. Any suggestion why?

Any suggestion and help would be appreciated

Code example xml view image:

 <field name="image" widget="image" class="oe_left oe_avatar"/>  



Contact us form:

<div t-attf-class="form-group #{error and 'image' in error and 'has-error' or ''}">

<label class="col-md-3 col-sm-4 control-label" for="image">Image Upload</label>

<div class="col-md-7 col-sm-8">

<input type="file" class="form-control" name="image" t-attf-value="#{image or ''}"/>

Hello Darius,

Your problems seems very simple, 

Did you included "enctype" attribute in your form ? Just like as below, ( See the enctype attribute only )

<form class="form-horizontal mt32" id="form_job_apply" action="/jobs/thankyou" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">

Tips : When you want to submit any binary data from web form, you must need to select "multipart/form-data" value for enctype attribute in your form. 

I am confident that your problem will be solved.

Is was already, but same issue.
