Support » Plugin: WordPress File Upload » Email Notifications

  • Hello,

    I have just installed your plugin and I need assistance in starting email notifications. I want an email to be sent to me whenever someone uploads a file.

    Can you please help me with this? Thanks!

    Hi, please read this article for instructions.

    Hello Nickolas,

    I have looked at the article and I do not have that section. The only tabs I have are Main, Settings, File Browser, View Log and Maintenance Actions. Also, I tried to perform an upload to test the form and that did not work as well.

    Please advice. Thanks!

    I believe it’s under Settings Not Upload File. Scroll down and click on Settings and than click on Upload File.

    The plugin provides a visual editor (shortcode composer) for easily configuring the upload form. The Email options are in there.

    To invoke the visual editor, you can find instructions in this article (it is also mentioned in the email instructions).

    Let me know if you face any problems.

    Hi Nick,

    I have configured the plugin using the shortcode composer and have pasted it into the correct page (please see at https://mathtutorexperts.com/careers/).

    Just as before, I cannot get a file to upload. At the moment, I have it set to only allow PDF uploads (please tell me the correct syntax to specify multiple file types on the shortcode composer). I have tested the form, and it indicates that it has been selected when I highlight over the empty box besides the buttons (please help me configure that box as well) but the Upload File button remains grayed out and is not clickable.

    Do you know what I did wrong setting this up? If you need to go into my dashboard, I can give you temporary access.

    Hi, I opened the page. I see a lot of Javascript errors that make the plugin inoperable.

    What theme do you use? Are you using any page builder also?

    Regards

    Hi Nick,

    The theme is called OceanWP (https://oceanwp.org/) and yes, I am using Elementor to build the pages. Are you aware of any issues with either of these?

    Yes indeed there are some issues with Elementor. There is a fix which might work in your case. Put the following code inside functions.php of your theme:

    if (!function_exists('wfu_after_upload_handler1')) {
    	function wfu_file_upload_output_handler1($cont) {
    		$ch = '&'.'#'.'038;';
    		$cont = str_replace($ch.$ch, '&&', $cont);
    		return $cont;
    	}
    	add_filter('elementor/frontend/the_content', 'wfu_file_upload_output_handler1', 100);
    }

    Try it and let me know.

    Regards

    Nickolas

    Nick,

    I added your code and so far the plugin works up until I try to upload. It recognizes the file, shows the progress bar then I get an error saying the file type is not allowed. I want to only allow PDF, DOC and DOCX; for testing I have it set to only allow PDF files. I attempted to upload a PDF file and this error still occurred. Here is my shortcode:
    [wordpress_file_upload uploadpatterns=”.pdf” createpath=”true” placements=”title/progressbar/filename+selectbutton+uploadbutton/subfolders/userdata/message” notify=”true” notifyrecipients=”mathtutorexp@gmail.com” attachfile=”true”]

    Hi, set Allowed File Extensions like this: *.pdf

    If you want to allow multiple extensions, set it like this: *.pdf, *.doc, *.docx

    Regards

    Nickolas

    Thanks, Nick. That worked, the file uploaded successfully.

    Lastly, is there any way to allow notifications to be sent to more than one email address?

    Plugin Author nickboss

    (@nickboss)

    Hi, yes, you can set a comma-separated list of emails in Email Recipients like this:

    myemail1@domain.com, myemail2@domain.com, myemail3@domain.com

    The notification will be sent to all these emails.

    Regards

    Nickolas
