This is an easy to use lost and found system for your community theater, church group,
community group, etc.
You submit a picture and a description of your items then people can enter their information
to claim the items.
- Upload “the-lost-and-found.zip” to the “/wp-content/plugins/” directory and unzip – or use the internal plugin install
- Activate the plugin through the “Plugins” menu in WordPress
- Enter the short code “[lost_found]” on a blank page.
From the wordpress dashboard there will be a menu Settings – lost-and-found with configuration options.
- Who is this for?
This is for any group with a wordpress site that one way or another gets items in their lost and found.
- Who can add items?
By default the wordpress admins can add items. Within the configuration page you can add other individuals or add that ability to additional users. Note: in order for a user to be able to add items they must have the “upload_files” capability in wordpress. By default these are authors, editors, and admins.
