This plugin allows your visitors to upload User Generated Content (media and posts/custom-post-types with media).
What is Frontend Uploader?
This plugin is a simple way for users to submit content to your site. The plugin uses a set of shortcodes to let you create highly customizable submission forms to your posts and pages. Once the content is submitted, it is held for moderation until you approve it. It’s that easy!
You can also manage UGC for selected custom post types (Please refer to the plugin's settings page). By default, UGC is enabled for posts and attachments. If you want to be able to get any other post types UGC submissions just select desired post types at the plugin's settings page, and pass post_type='my_post_type' to the [fu-upload-form] shortcode.
Customizing Your Form with Shortcode Parameters
Frontend Uploader uses shortcodes to insert a form into a page or post. The default form shortcode is [fu-upload-form] but you can modify the plugin's behavior with additional parameters.
If you would like to build a custom form, it must begin with [fu-upload-form] and end with [/fu-upload-form].
The [fu-upload-form] shortcode has several parameters important parameters:
This determines whether the form is saved as a post/custom post type (‘post’), as a media file (
media), or as a post with images (
post_media). Default value is
media. Example: [fu-upload-form class="your-class" title="Upload your media" form_layout=”post”]
Add this [fu-upload-form] shortcode, and this will be the Headline that will be displayed before the form. Example: [fu-upload-form class="your-class" title="Upload your media"]
HTML class of the form, defaults to 'validate'. If you want your form being validated - do not remove validate class. If you would like to item to be required before a user can submit, you can set it to ‘required.’ Example: [input type="text" name="post_title" id="title" class="required"]
Any post whitelisted in settings post type. Defaults to 'post'. Example: [fu-upload-form post_type="my-custom-post-type-slug"]
Automatically insert images into uploaded post (true or false)
URL to redirect on successful submission, defaults to the URL where the form is being displayed. For security reasons this should be an URL on your site (no external links). You can use [fu-upload-response] shortcode to display success/error messages on the redirect page.
ID of category the post should be attached (only in post or post+media mode).
ID of the post the image should be attached to. Defaults to the post ID of the post the shortcode is on.
In it's basic form shortcode adds some default fields for you - Title, Description, and file upload. However, you can create a customized shortcode.
Override global setting for supressing default form fields (true or false). Example: [fu-upload-form suppress_default_fields="true"] ... inner shortcodes omitted... [/fu-upload-form]
Within [fu-upload-form], you can add form fields.
[input type="text" ]A text box for one line of text
[textarea]=> A text box for multiple lines of text
[input type="file"]=> A file uploader
[checkboxes values="value:Description,124:Banana,cherry:Cherry"]=> A set of checkboxes

[select name="foo" class="select" description="Pick a fruit" values="apple:Apple,banana:Banana,cherry:Cherry"]=> A select
[input type="submit" class="btn" value="Submit"]=> A submit button
