[resolved] Landing page URL if installed in subdirectory (13 posts)

    The redirect problem pointed out by bob27707 and noted as "resolved" on the support page is actually *not* resolved. It still appears that installation in a subdirectory breaks the redirect action of the plugin.

    (1) I have WP 3.9.1 and Frontend Uploader installed in a subdirectory...it is at


    and I have been testing the plugin using the following page:


    (2) When I use just the default short code of [fu-upload-form], my browser redirects to this URL after submit:


    there's no such subdirectory of "photocontest" so I get a 404 error

    (3) When I try to use a redirect to an entirely different domain, I still get a 404 error. For example, I tried the short code

    [fu-upload-form success_page="http://fieldtripearth.org"]

    but after I submitted I was redirected to the following URL


    which is of course also a 404 error

    (4) finally, trying to be clever, i used the following short code

    [fu-upload-form title="This is an upload form dude" success_page="?page_id=66"]

    thinking that maybe it would land me in the correct subdirectory...however, that really failed, with the following redirect


    (5) is it possible you might be able/willing to fix this? your plugin is exactly what i need for a project i'm working on, but obviously i won't be able to do the project if this remains an issue

    thanks so much...please let me know if i can give you any additional information

    Thank you for this great plugin.

    Am able to see the Post & Media UGC files uploaded, but Post does not have the image, & in Media UGC files, the 'Re-Attach' seems to do nothing but send me back to the same Media UGC files webpage, with the following link: http://www.jacksoncountycreeks.org/wp-admin/upload.php?page=manage_frontend_uploader#the-list

    Working to try and get the media file 'connected' to the Post, and the 'Re-Attach' doesn't seem to work....

    Please advise when time permits.

    Thank you,

    Hey markmacallister,

    I just released 0.7.6 which should handle redirects properly.

    So something like
    [fu-upload-form success_page="http://mysite.dev/redirect-here/"]
    should work.

    I just downloaded this plugin and i love it, but i can't seem to figure out to get the redirect to work properly.

    this is what i have:

    [fu-upload-form success_page="http://www.prolific.online.com/thank-you-for-your-submission/"]

    not sure what i am doing wrong.

    thanks for the help!

    Hey geloquence,

    For security reasons success_page will redirect only to a page on your site. E.g. if you your site is site1.dev success_page that points to site2.dev won't work.

    It keeps redirecting to my wp-admin page, which i obviously do not want members to go. Can you please guide me in the right direction?

    This is expected behavior of wp_safe_redirect (either redirect to allowed domain or redirect to wp-admin if domain is not allowed).

    The easiest way to figure out domain to use would be just removing "/wp-admin/" part.

    E.g. if your admin has URL of

    the URL in success_page should start with

    Probably you're trying to redirect to
    http://www.my.site.dev/subfolder/ which is technically not whitelisted URL.

    Make sense?

    completely understand what you are saying...problem is, there is no subfolder...
