Support » Plugin: Form Manager » [Plugin: WordPress Form Manager] get image into template

  • Resolved mastermillo


    I am searching a way to display an image within the template of Form Manager for displaying within the new generated post.
    With the default template a download link is generated, but I want to display the image of the file-input field.

    I tried to use
    fm_summary_get_item_value($nickname) - get an item's value by nickname

    but this delivers more information, not only the URL.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Unfortunately the way the files work is kindof weird. The value returned by fm_summary_get_item_value() is an unserialized array containing the filename and other stuff. Try this instead:

    $file = fm_summary_get_item_value('whatever');
    $file = unserialize($file);
    $uploads = wp_upload_dir();
    <img src="<?php echo $uploads['url'].'/'.$file['filename'];?>"/>

    This will only work if you are using %wp_uploads_dir% as the upload directory.

    Thank you! This works perfect.

    Guys, I’m newbie in this kind of trics, so I would like to get some help.

    Template Name: Form Manager Default
    Template Description: The default template for e-mail notifications and summaries
    Template Type: email, summary
    Below are the functions that can be used within a summary template:
    fm_summary_the_title() - the title of the form
    fm_summary_have_items() - works like have_posts() for wordpress themes.  Returns 'true' if there are more items left in the form.
    fm_summary_the_item() - works like the_item() for wordpress themes.  Initializes the current form item.
    fm_summary_the_label() - label of the current form item
    fm_summary_the_type() - type of the current form item (text, textarea, checkbox, custom_list, note, separator, recaptcha, file)
    fm_summary_has_data() - returns true if the form element is a data element (as opposed to a separator, note, etc.)
    fm_summary_the_value() - submitted value of the current form item
    fm_summary_the_timestamp() - timestamp for the current submission
    fm_summary_the_user() - the login name for the current user.  If no user is logged in, this returns an empty string.
    fm_summary_the_IP() - the IP address of the user who submitted the form.
    fm_summary_the_nickname() - the current item's nickname
    fm_summary_get_item_label($nickname) - get an item's label by nickname
    fm_summary_get_item_value($nickname) - get an item's value by nickname
    *NOTE: 'Summary' templates can also be used for e-mails.  Notice that under 'Template Type', both 'email' and 'summary' are listed.  If you want to make a template for e-mail notifications only, then you should only put 'email' under 'Template Type'.
    <?php /* The title of the form */ ?>
    <?php /* The user's first and last name, if there is a logged in user */ ?>
    <?php /* The code below displays each form element, in order, along with the submitted data. */ ?>
    <ul id="fm-summary">
    <?php while(fm_summary_have_items()): fm_summary_the_item(); ?>
    	<?php if(fm_summary_the_type() == 'separator'): ?>
    		<hr />
    	<?php elseif(fm_summary_has_data()): ?>
    		<li<?php if(fm_summary_the_nickname() != "") echo " id=\"fm-item-".fm_summary_the_nickname()."\"";?>><?php echo fm_summary_the_label();?>: <strong><?php echo fm_summary_the_value();?></strong></li>
    	<?php endif; ?>
    <?php endwhile; ?>

    This is my fm-summary-default.php
    Where I have to paste this code and what is ‘whatever’?

    Here is the example how I use it:
    – use it before the “loop” will give you only the image
    – using it within the “loop” will generate the image and the link to the file
    Hope that helps you!

    mastermillo, you can upload the files necessary for work? or give the code with an explanation: 1) in which to insert the file 2) in a row insert?

    dear cheefa,
    everything you can do is described above or look in / use the pasted code (link) above your comment.
    should be selfexplaining….

    I made a change in the file upload. The code to grab the file url is:

    $file = fm_summary_get_item_value('whatever');
    $file = unserialize($file);
    <img src="<?php echo $file['upload_url'].'/'.$file['filename'];?>"/>

    Note that the url is stored with the file array, and there is no call to wp_upload_dir().
