    Hi,

    I’m looking into replacing “Frontend uploader” plugin (which is not being maintained) with yours. It looks very promising, especially with ability to hook into filters.

    One main question that holds me back right now is ability to moderate uploaded files. Is this something that could be done? If not in your plans, could I have some leads as to how it could work?

    Very basic principles: visitor uploads photos, they are added to WP Media. Administrator has to approve each photo individually (or by selecting a few). So each image would have some kind of value in database, that would mean “not yet approved”, which could be used for filtering images in other functions when showing them on page.

    Hi, I have done some customizations to enable moderation, but not exactly the way you mention it.

    The current custom implementation allows the admin to moderate the files (approve or reject them) through Uploaded Files menu page in Dashboard, but only one by one. There is no option for the moment to select multiple files and approve/reject them at once. The plugin keeps moderation information in the database record of each uploaded file. This information can be provided to any function using PHP to filter displayed files.

    Thank you for reply.

    Could you elaborate if this approval system is live inside the plugin? Because I installed a free version to check it and did not find it. Or maybe its in paid version (but did not see that in description too)?

    No, it’s not in the plugin. This implementation is custom code, which is added in the plugin as a hook.

    I can share it, however please send me an email at nickboss@iptanus.com
