Support » Plugin: WordPress File Upload » Possible to hook into NextGen to submit to gallery?

  • Resolved jamminjames


    We are currently using the very outdated “NextGEN Public Uploader” to allow the public to upload images to a NextGEN gallery. (It’s still working, but is not being kept up.)

    We’d like to transition to something like your plugin, however, I was wondering if you could give me any hints as to how we might use your filters or hooks to accomplish the same thing NextGEN Public Uploader does? It submits the images to a particular NextGEN gallery, and pre-checks the “Exclude?” box, making it so the image will not be viewable until we approve it by unchecking that.

    You can see the current public submission section by scrolling down to “Upload your cartoon here” on the page linked.

    Thanks for any help.

  • @matoca,

    You said, “Unfortunately I never made a child theme since this site was built 11 years ago,” but it’s never too late! If you don’t create a child theme first, your changes will be wiped out in the next WP release.

    Of course, Nickolas said he would add this to the plugin at some point, after which you won’t have to worry about it.

    Yes indeed it will be included in the next release.

    @matoca is right about the child theme. Nevertheless, it is not difficult to make a child theme, there are plenty of tutorials.
