Support » Plugin: Frontend Uploader » 3 Questions

  • 1) I’ve added the [gallery] shortcode to the page that I want images to appear on, everything works fine. But if I click on the thumbnail, it takes me to a separate page to view it. Any other image on the site opens (not added via this plugin) in a lightbox (using the Easy FancyBox plugin), on the same page. How can I get user uploaded photos to behave in the same manner? (The lightbox works on them, just to clarify – I just don’t want to be taken to a different page). Is there something I can change somewhere to make them do this?

    2) When I view the website on a mobile device, the link where the shortcode for the upload form doesn’t even appear. Any advice on how to correct this?

    3) I’d love to use this in a widget, but the “Browse” button makes it too long…what CSS code do I edit to make that button go under the white area under “Your Photo”?

    1) It’s a per image setting in gallery. When you edit your gallery you have two options: either to link it to attachment page or to media file itself. Try it, and let me know if it worked or not. Although you’re right, for some reason it doesn’t respect the setting. Seems like a bug, at least in WP 3.5. I’ll look into it, but I can’t give you into any tentative date, cause I’m swamped with my job right now.

    2) Are you talking about Android or iOS? I know that upload functionality doesn’t work in iOS < 6, not sure about Android.

    3) The form has an id ugc-media-form, so you can probably target it with #ugc-media-form input[type=”file”] in your CSS file. Although it looks like your problem comes from your theme, Frontend Uploader has minimal CSS (trying not to interfere with any theme styles), and the button doesn’t look wide in twentytwelve or any other themes that I tried it on.

    So it’s like
    #ugc-media-form input[type=”file”] {
    width: {width of your sidebar} px

    1) No, didn’t work. I reattached it to the gallery page, then linked it to the media file, but it still goes to a different page.

    2) I’ve tried viewing it both in my android smartphone (Samsung Galaxy III) and my Kindle Fire – it doesn’t appear in either, it’s like the page isn’t even there :/

    …Although, as I’ve just discovered, it shows up fine when it’s added to a top-level page. Go figure. Not sure what causes this, but it’s good to know this much, at least.

    3) Hmmm, that code doesn’t seem to change it at all. I guess I’ll keep looking. And you’re right, my side bar on this particular theme is pretty narrow.

    Overall, I’m not giving up on this plugin, I really love it, aside from a few little idiosyncrasies. I very much appreciate the time you take to respond to questions here.
