Support » Plugin: PDF Forms Filler for Contact Form 7 » Create post using PDF

    Hello there

    Is it possible to set this up not only to send a PDF, but also create a post using the PDF that was created when the form was filled?

    I’m trying to set my site up so once a form has been filled, the PDF can then be viewed by anyone accessing the site, without having to manually create a post to display the PDF.

    Cheers
    Andrew

    Hi,

    I am about to launch a couple of features that you may be interested in.

    1. Allow users to download filled PDF after submitting the form
    2. Allow CF7 form editor to set path where filled PDFs will be saved.

    I think you can use #2 to save PDF in a directory (in your public_html folder) that has directory listing turned on. Then, you can direct your users to that directory and allow them to download the filled PDF files.

    Let me know if that is going to be helpful.

    Both of those features will be extremely useful to me. Let me know when you have this up and running and I’ll get it implemented pretty quickly.

    I have the first working version of the download/save features committed on GitHub. I would appreciate someone testing and giving me feedback. You can download the work in progress version of the plugin at the following URL,

    Thanks for that. I have used it on a couple of forms. I like that The name of the PDF can now be specified, that is really handy. Implementing it is nice and easy too. With the uploaded PDF, is there anyway it could be placed in the media library, or even posted in a certain category

    The file name feature was introduced in a previous version. Adding filled PDFs into the media library is an interesting idea, I will have to think about that. I don’t know about posting them in categories, I don’t think that is a native feature of WordPress.

    By the way, I’ve released the new version recently, however, there is a small bug which I’ve fixed but haven’t released yet.
