[Help] Upload file and create post

Thu, 01/25/2018 - 21:03

Our church secretary uploads pdf to media. I am trying to build a form with an upload field for the pdf, a title, and a date field. Using this form, I want to create a post that shows the title, date, and a link to the uploaded file. Any suggestions?

[Help] Is there a plugin that can turn a WordPress site into a oEmbed provider?

Thu, 01/25/2018 - 20:41

I'm not asking to insert oEmbed content. Rather, I want to deliver oEmbed content that can be embedded on other sites.

[help] Is there a good plugin to record and display Contact Form 7 data?

Thu, 01/25/2018 - 02:09

Hi Reddit,

I am what you would call an enthusiastic hobbyist with Wordpress. I help some local community projects (nonprofit websites, golf tournaments, etc) and I have traditionally used CF7 as my 'lead capture' tool.

A few years ago I found the Contact Form DB (CFDB) plugin and loved the functionality. With it, I could set up a back end page for my clients that presented a table of all leads generated. The best part was that it had a great set of short codes that made it all very easy.

Well, now I am setting up a new site, and it looks like CFDB has disappeared from the official Wordpress listing. I can find it on Github, but there is some information that the code may not be up to Wordpress standards.

Can anyone recommend a good alternate to CFDB, or provide me a suggestion for a plugin that does the same thing as the CF7+CFDB combination?

[HELP] bbPress / Gravity Forms Custom Code Review

Tue, 01/23/2018 - 19:42

Any chance someone can build on and/or tell me what might be wrong with the below code?

In an attempt to force all bbPress forum-less topics into the specified forum on form submission (Gravity Forms), this is what I've come up with so far:

add_action( 'gform_after_submission', 'set_post_content', 10, 2 ); function set_post_content( $entry, $form ) { //getting post $post_id = get_post( $entry['post_id'] ); //get post type and post parent id $post_type = get_post_type($post_id) ; $post_parent = wp_get_post_parent_id ($post_id) ; //if it's a forum and has no post parent (allows for normal topic creation, and other posts type creation etc.) if ($post_type == bbp_get_forum_post_type() && (empty ($post_parent))) { // Update topic (post) 1234 forum (post) 321 $my_post = array( 'ID' => $post_id, 'post_parent' => 31086, ); //updating post wp_update_post( $post_id ); } }

The Gravity Forms documentation "pre" and "after" submission hooks are:

add_action( 'gform_pre_submission', 'pre_submission' );


add_action( 'gform_after_submission', 'after_submission', 10, 2 );

Full related Gravity Forms documentation here and here.

[HELP] Can't find custom Visual Composer element

Tue, 01/23/2018 - 09:39

Hey, I'm having issues with a theme and their support is absymal. That's going to reflect in their review, but that's another story.

So, I have a theme that uses several custom Visual Composer elements. However, I can't seem to find where the code for those elements is. As far as I know, there should be some files somewhere on the server which handle the display of those elements.

Am I looking at the wrong place? I've searched for everything I could think of, but I can't get any usable results.

Thanks in advance.
