Simple image upload field instead of Built in Media uploader (2 posts)

    Hello everyone,

    I would jump for joy, if someone would help me figure out how to replace the built in media uploader with just a plain input field. So when someone clicks on the input field it would open a window that would allow them upload images from their computer. Once they have selected the image and type some words in the textbox the image is uploaded automatically and placed into the post after the "submit" button is clicked. Whoever has the answer to this would be an amazing person! Thanks in advance.

    I had this same question. It's actually much harder than it seems because of the javascript and ajax/jQuery. the ajax/jQuery can't handle uploading images for security issues so you have to disable some of that, though the full page will continue to reload after an upload.

    I personally outsourced this to a freelancer.com person named Naouali for $30 USD.

    Sorry I couldn't be of more help, but that's one option.
