Support » Plugin: Featured Image from URL » use on the frontend

  • I need users to be able to complete a form (eg gravity forms) to create a post.
    I would like to use this as one of the fields.
    Is it possible to add to a form on the frontend (ie not through the dashboard)?

    Some plugins already do that, @lucytech.

    For example, Frontend Publishing.

    Many users use that with the “Auto Set First Image” feature from FIFU.

    I don’t see field for FIFU when I add use the Frontend Publishing plugin. Where do I put the image URL? Can I add this field to a frontend post?
    I don’t want users to be able to access the Media gallery.
    Would it also work with https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-user-frontend/?

    Hi, @lucytech.

    You can put the image in post content. Then activate “Auto Set First Image” in FIFU settings.

    Well, I don’t know WP User Front, @lucytech. But it may work. As I have said, just put the image in content. Make sure your are using the “img” tag.

    Hi, this plugin can do what you need:
    https://wclovers.com/knowledgebase/wcfm-custom-fields/

    For now it will only work fine with FIFU Premium. However, I’ve contacted the WCFM developer to do a change to make that compatible with the this free version too.

    I inform you if I have news.

    I set the form up using gravity forms and acf fields. Can the plugin integrate with that?

    WCFM is for store product? It looks much too complex for my needs.

    I just want to create blog post and for the featured image, take the image from the url (the client really want to use the product url, not the image url).

    Is a way to make your plugin work just for aliexpress and the easier online store, if not for amazon?
    Thank you so much for your help with this, it is really appreciated.

    I don’t know Gravity Forms, but I will take a look. Then I inform you.

    Just Aliexpress? Doesn’t seem to be a good idea. But I would like to implement a generic solution for that, when I have free time (FIFU is not my real job). Unfortunately I’m very busy developing some features asked for a huge amount of users now. So it will take months to come true.

    If I build the form in a template file using just ACF field and not gravity form – how do I add your field?
    What is the coding I need to call to display your field?
    Thanks

    The custom field used by FIFU is “fifu_image_url”. But the URL input should be provided by the form plugin, exactly as WCFM does. Please check the ACF documentation and let me know if that’s possible. Then I can check if an integration is possible.

    If I’m custom coding the form in a template file can’t I have a url input using HTML and your custom field?
    <input type=”url” name=”test”>?
    Can you send me the line of code I would need for that ?

    Otherwise if I use acf and gravity forms I can create an input field type for URLs using either of them but I don’t know how to connect it to your field. ACF fields have their own field keys and values.

    Try this one:
    <input id="fifu_input_url" type="text" name="fifu_input_url"/>

    I’m using gravity forms in the end.
    Can I use this plugin to allow users to upload an image from the url from within a gravity form?

    Plugin Author Marcel

    (@marceljm)

    No, @lucytech.

    FIFU doesn’t upload images. It only store URLs.

    Sorry, I didn’t mean to upload an image, I meant can I use FIFU as an input field within a gravity form or connect with ACF fields)?

    Plugin Author Marcel

    (@marceljm)

    No, @lucytech. FIFU doesn’t provide external input fields. But you could add an input field using your favorite form plugin. Then all you have to do is to associate the input field with the custom field “fifu_image_url”.

    Please let me know your results. And inform if something goes wrong. Then I can check if something else should be developed to do the integration.
