File uploads with Form Generator
I am building a front-end control panel for users, which has an Add Listing form. I've used the Form Generator plugin to create the Add Listing form code and I need to now add the ability for photo uploads.
I'd like to just use the same upload script as is used in the "cmsb" admin area.
Can someone please point me in the right direction for doing this (e.g. what script(s) would I need to include? Which pages can I look at for existing code? Anything else to consider?)
The upload system used by CMSB can't be easily integrated to the front-end. However, you can create a front-end uploader by submitting information fitting the "uploads" section. The section can be accessed by going to cmsb/admin.php?menu=uploads and it contains all the uploaded files information. By saving a new record in the section with required information, the CMSB will recognize the uploaded file.
Let me know if you have any questions!
Thank you very much for this information. I didn't know this page existed. Very useful!
For the time being, we've set it up by displaying the cmsb upload form in an iframe, which seems to be working well. It's just a shame I can't seem to drag the sort order on touch devices...
Are there any security issues we should consider when using an iframe to display the uploads forms?
