Allows a user to submit multiple files from a form on your WordPress site via AJAX to WordPress default uploads folder and adds an attachment to the
Wordpress media gallery. Includes a shortcode
[wp-multi-file-uploader] for use in a form created in the post editor and a function for use in a form in a template file
Plugin Home Page: http://danholloran.me/WPMultiFileUploader/
What this plugin does not do: This plugin does not make sure that the user is allowed to add a file but it does restrict the file type to the WordPress supported file types by default, this has been updated to dynamically get the supported file types for your WordPress install. The file upload size limit is now restricted to either the WordPress or PHP INI limit this can be changed. It also does not play nice at the moment with WordPress form building plugins, if you integrate it with one please let me know and submit a pull request this is a feature I would like to eventually get integrated.
Both the short code and the function accept 2 parameters.
allowed_mime_types accepts a comma separated white space sensitive list, ex: jpg,png,gif
max_file_size accepts the file size in megabytes ex: 4 = 4mb
Thanks to: This project incorporates the excellent file uploader at https://github.com/valums/file-uploader, if your project is included and I do not have you added please let me know, thank you.
