NextGEN Public Uploader
[resolved] Require email with public upload (10 posts)

    This question has been asked before, but I wanted to bring it up now that the plugin has been reactivated (Thank you, so much!)

    Would like to require or at least request email and other form data be submitted (and available only to admin) with visitor's uploaded images.
    Is this being considered for this or perhaps a Pro/paid version? It is an important addition and often requested in various threads I have recently found. Very hopeful as this is the only working upload plugin available in the WP community at this time. LOVE IT!

    Have there been any updates on this? I really need a user photo-upload form that includes multiple information fields.

    Ditto ... also styling would be great.

    I would like to have this functionality too.

    Is this going to be supported anytime soon?

    I'm also interested in a version that includes an email address. Also, is there a way to make the "browse" button appear below the input field? My column in the sidebar is skinning, so the button currently extends outside the website's right border.

    Any update on when the Pro version will be released?

    I too wanted that information. I also wanted to know which gallery was modified. Seeing that the plugin seems to have no one maintaining it, I gamble that any changes I make to it won't be updated and overwritten anytime soon.

    Use the following at your own risk. Find and edit the following file:

    Near the bottom of the file, find the email notification function and replace it with this:

    // Function: Send Email Notice
    		public function sendEmail() {
    			global $wpdb;
    			global $current_user;
    			$gal_id = $_POST['galleryselect'];
    				$to = get_option('npu_notification_email');
    				$subject = "New Image Pending Review - NextGEN Public Uploader";
    				$message = "A new image has been submitted and is waiting to be reviewed.\r\n";
    				$message .="Uploaded by $current_user->user_login, $current_user->display_name, $current_user->user_email.\r\n";
    				$message .="To gallery: $gal_id \r\n";
    				wp_mail( $to, $subject, $message);

    This code adds 2 new lines to the message. The first provides Username, Display Name, and email address of the user making the upload. The second provides the ID number of the gallery.

    Perhaps, if someone actually picks up responsibility for the plugin they can add something similar.
