Chronoforms 6 - Embeeding Signature Widget results as Attachment

cesar , December 20 2017
Hello guys!

I have a question.

How do you exactly make the Chronoform v6 "attach" the obtained signatures both as "result page" (for printing) and as email?

I have been having issues since the last update. The images no longer appear when invoking them using the {data:field} code.
They now appear in the bottom in a huge string of text of base64 PNG format.

Emails are exactly the same, no real content and no attachments.

I tried to follow these suggestions:
But the images appear broken.

Example of results (debugging)

I'm having almost the same issue. The post that cesar links to is for v5. The png file saves to the server, although with a size of zero. Also, in v6, based on the signature FAQ, I'm not sure where to place the {sig_img} "in the email template".


Apologies for the late reply!

I understand from the first post that this used to work before the latest update ?

Here is an example of a working image tag with base64 format:

<img src="data:image/png;base64, iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAAAUA
9TXL0Y4OHwAAAABJRU5ErkJggg==" alt="Red dot" />

So the end HTML code of your email/page should have a similar syntax to the example above, is this the case ?

According to the debug you would need to use this code in the email:
<img src="{data:Signature1}" />

Best regards

Signatures now work properly thanks!

Both appear correctly in the "confirm" page and in the email.
