RSForm!Pro 2.2.4 - Multi File Upload feature, improved usability and functionality

We are happy to announce you our new and improved version of RSForm!Pro. Let's take the main features of the component one by one and talk a little more about each one.

Multi File Upload

Since this was a highly demanded feature by our clients, we decided to include this in the latest version of the component. This feature will allow your users to upload multiple files during their form submission, through a single form field.

Until this version, if you wanted to allow your users to upload multiple files, you had to create a File Upload field for each file that had to be uploaded.

Now, you can easily achieve this by editing your File Upload field, switching to the Attributes tab and setting to "Yes" the "Multiple" option. When this option is enabled, more configuration fields will become visible, such as: Minimum Uploads, Maximum Uploads or Separator option which will allow you to configure the fields as per your needs.

Enclosure and Delimiter options for CSV export

One of the most useful functionalities of RSForm!Pro is that allows exporting the form submissions into CSV format file through Submission Directory menu item.

Joomla 3.9.10 Release

Joomla 3.9.10 is now available. This is a bug fix release for the 3.x series of Joomla which addresses one bug introduced into 3.9.9, affecting template styles of multilingual web sites.

What's in 3.9.10?

Joomla 3.9.10 is fixing one bug introduced into Joomla 3.9.9 which affects the template styles of multilingual sites and results in lost data.

Please read this JDocs FAQ page to learn more about this issue and its fix.

IMPORTANT information for users who have already updated to 3.9.9 and faced this issue.
Due to a bad sql update, the template style mapping to content languages has been lost. Unfortunately, this is an unrecoverable error.
You must either:

  • Restore the data manually by upgrading to Joomla 3.9.10 and then manually editing each template style and using the "Default" Field to the language required 
  • Or restore a 3.9.8 backup of your sites to recover the data before updating to Joomla 3.9.10.


We would like to take a moment to apologise to our users. 
Whilst we understand that a release which introduces a major bug is always serious - in this case the bug involved actual data lost from sites. This is a red line for us. We are going to go away and look at how we can improve our release and testing strategies and report back to our users when this is complete, detailing how we aim to improve in the future.

CSV vulnerability explained

Title: CSV vulnerability explained
Article:

How can CSV files be affected?

Well, technically CSV files are text files - the purpose of a CSV is in its name - Comma Separated Values. The issue is actually a combination of spreadsheet software interpreting values as formulas (thus no longer treating values as plain text) and the tendency of users to ignore security prompts - or to agree to terms and conditions without scrolling through :-)
