    Frontend Uploader

    Add to List

    What is Frontend Uploader?

    This plugin is a simple way for users to submit content to your site. The plugin uses a set of shortcodes to let you create highly customizable submission forms to your posts and pages. Once the content is submitted, it is held for moderation until you approve it. It’s that easy!

    Exploring Customizations

    • You can modify the submission form as needed, and have users submit posts. Please visit the FAQ page for more information.
    • This plugin can be applied to Posts, Pages, and Custom Post Types. You can enable this via Settings > Frontend Uploader Settings.
    • Form can be used in 3 modes: upload files, submit posts/custom post types, and mixed – submit a post and attach files to it.
    • Form supports following fields: text, textarea, select, radio buttons, and checkboxes

    Customizing Your Form with Shortcode Parameters

    Frontend Uploader is flexible and powerful, but unfortunately there’s no visual form constructor at the moment – you have to use shortcodes. Please read this documentation carefully in order to leverage the plugin’s features.

    At it’s most basic form, the shortcode would look like this

    This will render a default form for media upload that has title, description and upload fields. (See screenshot 2)

    The same shortcode with some customizations would look like this:

    [fu-upload-form class="html-wrapper-class"
    form_layout="media" title="Upload your media"]
    [input type="text" name="post_title" id="title"
    class="required" description="Title"]
    [textarea name="post_content" class="textarea"
    id="my-textarea" description="Description (optional)"]
    [input type="file" name="photo" id="my-photo-submission"
    class="required" description="Your Photo" multiple="multiple"]
    [input type="submit" class="btn" value="Submit"]

    As you can see, form elements are represented by shortcodes: [input], [textarea], [radio], [checkboxes], [file]. Each of them has a set of attributes, e.g. `id, class, name, value, values, type, description, minlength, maxlength. Please refer to “Form Elements” section of this readme for more details on elements and their attributes.

    Main shortcode: [fu-upload-form]

    The main shortcode, it has many important parameters that modify form behavior.

    In the following example we are creating a form with title “Upload your story and image”. The form will allow to submit a custom post type story with an image which is going to be automatically inserted at the end of the story. The story will have a category with ID 1. On successful submission user will be redirected to

    [fu-upload-form form_layout="post_media" title="Upload your story and image"
    class="my-class validate" post_type="story" append_to_post="true"
    success_page="" category="1" ][/fu-upload-form]

    The list of all parameters for [fu-upload-form]


    This determines whether the form is saved as a post/custom post type (‘post’), as a media file (media), or as a post with images (post_media). Default value is media.
    [fu-upload-form form_layout=”post”]


    Add this [fu-upload-form] shortcode, and this will be the Headline that will be displayed before the form.
    fu-upload-form class=”your-class” title=”Upload your media”]


    HTML class of the form, defaults to ‘validate’. If you want your form being validated – do not remove validate class. If you would like to item to be required before a user can submit, you can set it to ‘required.’
    [input type=”text” name=”post_title” id=”title” class=”required”]


    Any post whitelisted in settings post type. Defaults to ‘post’.
    [fu-upload-form post_type=”my-custom-post-type-slug”]


    Automatically insert images into uploaded post (true or false)


    URL to redirect on successful submission, defaults to the URL where the form is being displayed. For security reasons this should be an URL on your site (no external links). You can use [fu-upload-response] shortcode to display success/error messages on the redirect page.


    ID of category the post should be attached (only in post or post+media mode).


    ID of the post the image should be attached to. Defaults to the post ID of the post the shortcode is on.


    Override global setting for supressing default form fields (true or false).
    [fu-upload-form suppress_default_fields=”true”] … inner shortcodes omitted… [/fu-upload-form]
