Gravity Forms - Upload File Attachement With Title WordPress

  • REFUNDED

Hello

I would like your help with gravity forms and wordpress.

1 - We currently have a form that is creating a new post of a custom post type.
2 - Would like the option to upload multiple files (various formats, image, doc etc) as part of this submission
3 - Files are to be attached to the post and visible in the media manager, NOT into a custom field. Attachments should be accessable to shortcode plugins like https://wordpress.org/plugins/list-attachments-shortcode/
4 - Each file needs to have a title (the media manager field) entered as part of the upload

Inputs
- File selected from explorer
- Title entered in text field

Results
- File attached to post
- Title field populated in media manager

Notes
- Up to 10 files could be uploaded, so ideally a repeater would be used
- I can provide access to a staging environment, please message me

the whole code would be in the functions.php

/**
* Gravity Wiz // Multi-File Merge Tag for Post Content Templates
*
* Enhance the merge tag for multi-file upload fields by adding support for outputting markup that corresponds to the
* uploaded file. Example: image files will be wrapped in an <img> tag. Out of the box, this snippet only supports
* images and is limited to the 'jpg', 'png', and 'gif'.
*
* The default merge tag for the multi-file upload field will output the URL for each of the files.

Hi Romel

Thanks for the link.

Can you please point out which part of that allows me to enter a title for the file? This is a key requirement for me.

Thanks
Nick
