    Hey,

    Posts are going to “Manage UGC” page in Posts tab. You’ll need to approve them first before they appear on your sites.

    Keep in mind, that images do not appear in the post automatically, they only get attached to the post, so that you can add them to a gallery or post content with Media manager.

    I am having the same problem. The picture uploads, but the content is missing. No posts show in the Posts / Manage UGC Posts.

    Here is the code I’m using:

    [fu-upload-form class=”your-class” title=”Upload your Selfie!” success_page=”http://www.northamptonchamber.com/thanks”%5D
    [input type=”text” name=”post_title” id=”title” class=”required” description=”Your Name” multiple=””]
    [input type=”text” name=”email” id=”ug_email” class=”required” description=”Your E-mail”]
    [input type=”text” name=”company” id=”company” class=”required” description=”Your Company/Organization” multiple=””]
    [textarea name=”post_content” class=”textarea” class=”required” id=”ug_caption” description=”Description (Please tell us who’s in your selfie and why you chose them for the photo.)”]
    [input type=”file” name=”photo” id=”ug_photo” class=”required” description=”Your Photo” multiple=””]
    [input type=”submit” class=”btn” value=”Submit”]
    [/fu-upload-form]

    mwhite67,

    You’re using default media form layout. In this case content becomes picture description. If you go to Media -> Manage UGC and click ‘edit’, then scroll down, you’ll see the description.

    On a sidenote, you don’t need to add ‘multiple’ to all the inner shortcodes. You’ll need to add multiple='true' to the file field in case you want to allow uploading of multiple files at once.

    Cheers

    Thanks for the response. When I click Edit and scroll down, I see the text in the Description field on the Upload form repeated in the Caption and Description fields with the image, but I also included fields on the form for Name, Email, and Company. I don’t see that data anywhere. Am I missing something?

    Follow-up to previous email: Isn’t the form data supposed to appear on a post in the Manage UGC Posts section? Mine is empty.

    Only if you use “post_media” or “post” form layout.

    This should work:

    [fu-upload-form class="your-class" title="Upload your Selfie!" form_layout="post_media" success_page="http://www.northamptonchamber.com/thanks"]
    [input type="text" name="post_title" id="title" class="required" description="Your Name" ]
    [input type="text" name="email" id="ug_email" class="required" description="Your E-mail"]
    [input type="text" name="company" id="company" class="required" description="Your Company/Organization" ]
    [textarea name="post_content" class="textarea" class="required" id="ug_caption" description="Description (Please tell us who’s in your selfie and why you chose them for the photo.)"]
    [input type="file" name="photo" id="ug_photo" class="required" description="Your Photo" multiple="true"]
    [input type="submit" class="btn" value="Submit"]
    [/fu-upload-form]

    Keep in mind, if you use post_media form layout, you’ll have to approve posts and images separately.

    Name, Email, and Company will be saved as meta fields, They are not shown by WordPress by default, however you can install https://wordpress.org/plugins/post-meta-inspector/ to see them.

    Thanks for your response earlier Rinat. It’s a really great plugin, one of the few that has done what I actually need one to do since I started using WP.

    Thanks so much for your prompt responses and great plug-in. All my problems are now resolved.

    Rinat,

    I’m having a similar issue. When I remove form_layout=”post_media” and just use your default value the form successfully submits an image. But when I add form_layout=”post_media” back in, I get the error: “There was an error with your submission”

    Here’s the code i’m using:

    [fu-upload-form suppress_default_fields="true" form_layout="post_media" title=""]
    [input type="text" name="name" class="required" description="Your Name*"]
    [input type="text" name="contact-phone" description="Phone number"]
    [input type="text" name="contact-email" class="required" description="Email address*"]
    [checkboxes class="checkboxes" name="exhibition-interest" description="Would you like us to contact you about showing this piece in a future exhibition?" values="Yes,No"]
    [input type="text" name="title" class="required" description="What is the title of the artwork?* (Note: Use 'Untitled' if there is no given title.)"]
    [textarea type="text" name="description" description="Are there any special notes you want us to know about the piece? Or the story of how you came to own it?"]
    [input type="text" name="date" description="What date was the artwork created?"]
    [checkboxes name="date-validation" class="checkboxes" description="Is the date approximate or exact?" values="Approximate,Exact"]
    [input type="text" name="medium" description="What medium(s) did Magu use for this piece?"]
    [input type="text" name="width" description="Width"]
    [input type="text" name="height" description="Height"]
    [input type="text" name="depth" description="Depth"]
    [checkboxes name="signed-validation" class="checkboxes" description="Is the artwork signed?" values="Yes,No"]
    [input type="file" name="photo" multiple="true" description="If the work has writing or any markings on the back, please include an image of the back as well."]
    [input type="submit" class="btn" value="Submit"]
    [/fu-upload-form]

    Hey meanderingthemaze,

    Great work with your customization! Title field should always have the name ‘post_title’, otherwise it’ll fail. I tried your shortcode, and changed title to post_title and it seems to work.

    [fu-upload-form suppress_default_fields="true" form_layout="post_media" title=""]
    [input type="text" name="name" class="required" description="Your Name*"]
    [input type="text" name="contact-phone" description="Phone number"]
    [input type="text" name="contact-email" class="required" description="Email address*"]
    [checkboxes class="checkboxes" name="exhibition-interest" description="Would you like us to contact you about showing this piece in a future exhibition?" values="Yes,No"]
    [input type="text" name="post_title" class="required" description="What is the title of the artwork?* (Note: Use 'Untitled' if there is no given title.)"]
    [textarea type="text" name="description" description="Are there any special notes you want us to know about the piece? Or the story of how you came to own it?"]
    [input type="text" name="date" description="What date was the artwork created?"]
    [checkboxes name="date-validation" class="checkboxes" description="Is the date approximate or exact?" values="Approximate,Exact"]
    [input type="text" name="medium" description="What medium(s) did Magu use for this piece?"]
    [input type="text" name="width" description="Width"]
    [input type="text" name="height" description="Height"]
    [input type="text" name="depth" description="Depth"]
    [checkboxes name="signed-validation" class="checkboxes" description="Is the artwork signed?" values="Yes,No"]
    [input type="file" name="photo" multiple="true" description="If the work has writing or any markings on the back, please include an image of the back as well."]
    [input type="submit" class="btn" value="Submit"]
    [/fu-upload-form]

    Cheers!

    Thanks 🙂 And fantastic plugin! It took me some time to hunt through the other support questions to get most of my answers. I must have overlooked that detail about ‘post_title’. Makes sense though if its integrating with WP posts. Thanks for catching that and getting back so quickly – I’m up and running!

    HELP!

    I’m looking for something really simple and trying to use Frontend Uploader…

    I want visitors to be able to upload their blog name and media pack (PDF). That’s it!

    I want to be able to approve it, and then once approved, it appears on the same page as the original form in some sort of grid.

    Is this possible? (Please forgive my ignorance, I’m new to WP and code)

    Thanks,

    What’s the easiest way to export all the data from Frontend Uploader? I understand I might have to convert it, it would be nice if it was all associated by each submission.
