This plugin will help you add file upload feature to your site, set maximum upload size, allowed file extensions, and much more through a simple shortcode or a custom function.
Totally AJAX, your uploads will be processed faster and an elegant way. All you need to do is to add the shortcode to your content, or call the plugin’s custom function whithin your code and that’s it.
You can either use
[ajax-file-upload /*settings as attributes*/] shortcode to display the quick media upload buttons in the front-end, or use
do_shortcode('[ajax-file-upload ..]') in your PHP templates, or the built-in function
ajax_file_upload( $args ) for which you should set the settings as an array in the 1 function parameter (those act like shortcode attributes, in case of confusion).
Upload any type of media as long as your settings allow, nice and easy
Set file extensions to let limit the uploads to only custom extensions, like for instance images (jpg,png,gif,bmp..)
Set maximum upload size and when a user tries to upload a larger file, they will get a notice (which you can totally customize)
Custom permission to upload, you can choose to allow uploads to certain user role, or logged-in users only, or everyone!
You can always switch between settings from a shortcode to another, you are not obliged to use the same settings, but when a shortcode’s settings are empty or the unique identifier attribute is not set then in this case, the default settings (you can change them in the admin) will be used.
This is totally free and open source plugin. You can contribute to it, fork it on Github, include it in your project and much more and always feel free to do so. Licensed under GNU GPL, just like major WordPress plugins and WordPress itself.
