Properties of Embeddable Forms
Form Tag: this is just an indetifier or Name of the form. It should only contain alphanumeric and underscore characters.
Upload to Category: “Selectable by Uploader” means, that the Upload Form includes a Select element where the uploading user can choose the Category where the file will be uploaded to. If set to “Upload to Root” or a Category, this is fixed and cannot be changed by Uploader.
Overwrite existing files: If a File with the Same name and Category exists, it will be overwritten when this checkbox is enabled
Attach uploaded files to post or page the form is embedded in: Uploaded Files will be attached to the current post or page, so they usually appear below the content, using the default File Template.
Use advanced Drag & Drop Uploader: This enables the modern HTML5 Uploader with Progress Bar and Drag & Drop function.
Notify Admins whenever a file is uploaded: when enabled, all Site Admins are notified by email when a file is uploaded using the form
More email notifications: Here you can enter additional E-Mail Addresses that will be notified as well
Permission: Define who is allowed to use the form. The form will be hidden for not permitted users
Uploaded files must been approved: Uploaded files are set “offline” after upload, and have to be approved by an admin to be publicly available.
