Support » Plugin: Folder Slider » Username-specific folders

  • I have the plugin working, and it’s great. Exactly as described. I’m trying to get the shortcode to recognize the logged-in user’s username to determine which folder to pull from. Something like [folderslider folder=”wp-content/uploads/%username%”] where each user is uploading photos and they would only see their own uploaded files rather than a general location. Is this possible or outside of the scope? If it’s not doable, can you point me in a general direction? Thanks!

    You can’t do that right now. I cannot find time to work on my plugin.
    But I have 2 spare days next week. I’ll try to look into it.

    Yes, it should be quite easy, but… i’m not sure of what you exactly want. First, I thought that WP creates itself <username> directores in uploads directory for contributors. But it seems it doesnt.

    Do you mean you create yourself the <username> directories somewhere and just want that I add a shortcode %%username%% in my pluging that expands to the username of the logged user ? What should I do (display) if the user is not connected ?
