No Document description box on frontend upload

Hello,

I just updated to the latest 3.1 release. Now when my logged in clients try and upload a document, they can add the title but the docuemnt description box is no longer visible?

I cannot see anywhere in the config to activate this.

Has the ability to add a document description been removed? How can I enable logged in frontend user the ability to add a description to the documents they upload?

Thanks

Hello Burt, we have removed the description field from the submit a document form, we are working on removing documents descriptions for DOCman 4 as they are not much used.

You can still re-add the description field using a template override. More info can be found in the upgrade instructions: http://help.joomlatools.com/article/265-docman-3-0-to-docman-3-1#submit-a-document-menu-item
