I just updated Silverstripe from 3.0.5 to 3.2.1. Everything works allright, but the userforms plugin. It has two (or maybe 3) errors:

* The frontend shows the error "Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'settings' of undefined" on jquery.validate.min.js in my element inspector
* The datepicker doesn't get showed, i think because of this javascript error

* The File upload field is missing in the backend. I can not select this option when i'm adding a field.

* I tried the most recent master built, and also the stable releases 3.1.0 and 3.0

Thanks in advance!

Hi quanto,

Are you familiar with composer? If so have you installed this module using composer or checked it's json content?

Hi swaiba,

Thanks for your answer. I updated the userform just by downloading the code from git and uploaded it to my server using FTP (and flushed the db after that several times).

So I would advise you learn composer and only install modules using that. If you cannot on the server then at least you can on your local host.

Will that be the solution to my problem?

I'm guessing this issue for you quanto has either been resolved or you have moved on?

Nevertheless, for anyone landing on this question with the same issue, you will need to install the 'secureassets' module for the UploadField to become available within the CMS Form Builder. This is security precaution for all versions of Userforms from version 3.0.0 Final.

See below for reference:
