Upload progress bar on contact form 7


Staff member
I have a friend which has this website and has clients uploading big files to his contact form all the time. As the form does not say the percentage of upload, often people just go away cause they think the website is blocked. This is the contact form url

The only way to avoid this would be to build a contact form that has an upload progress bar. As he i programmed the website in Wordpress and i have always used contact form 7 (which is hooked to another plugin for a database so unfortunately we cannot change). I have looked all over the net to make this little hack to the form and I have even found this fix

but unfortunately it does not seem to work on the current contact form 7 plugin (i think the folder structure changed.

Anybody could kindly help me to find a quick solution for it? A small hack or something? I just need a progress bar for the upload.

Thanks a lot
