Support » Plugin: NextGEN Custom Fields » [Plugin: NextGEN Custom Fields] Changing values of custom fields via form sending

  • This plugin is quite good, but the problem is that he just allows to change the value of some fields in WP Dashboard, not via some form on site.

    As an example, I am trying to implement photo publishing feature for users of my site. Form has some custom fields, like title of the pic, it’s description, e-mail of the author, etc.

    Is it possible somehow to change values by sending form or it is not?

    Hi copy ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m not quite sure what your question is?

    Do you want to change custom field values with a form that isn’t in the ‘manage gallery’ page of NGG?

    Yes, I want to change values with form that is located on the site and visible to users. Here is the form.

    Name, Surname, Description โ€”ย these are custom fields in my settings.

    The problem is, I do not know what should be name= value in this string:
    <input type="text" name="nggcf_fields..."

    Once that form is submitted, how is the image being saved in NGG? Is it using NGG Public Uploader?

    Yes, I’ve modified this plugin (NGG Public Uploader) for my needs.

    There isn’t an easy answer then. You would need to write the functionality yourself (actual sql inserts into the right tables).

    I have had a number of requests on integrating with NGG Public Uploader, but the author of that plugin hasn’t got back to me with my suggestion about working together on it.

    I am considering writing a competing plugin, but not sure if there is enough interest.

    Thank you very much for answers and for making Custom Fields plugin. I will read some PHP/MySQL manuals and improve plugin for myself.

    Hope that you will write such plugin in future, good luck!

    Copy, please share us if you came with a solution! ๐Ÿ˜€
