With version 1.0.0 the Filr Uploader was introduced in Filr. You can now let other users add files directly from the frontend of your website.
The frontend uploader is a new shortcode called [filr-uploader]
You can also use a couple of parameters to further customise the usage of the frontend uploader
Using the library parameter to specify a specific library users can upload their files to:
Using the status parameter to specify a specific status that will be added to the uploaded file. This can be useful if you need some kind of manual review before publishing files to a library:
User role parameter
Using the user-role parameter to specify a user role that should be able to upload files. You can restrict that to any user role you like and block the upload for unauthorized users:
User email parameter
Using the user-email parameter to specify a specific user by e-mail that should be able to upload files. You can restrict that to any user e-mail you like and block the upload for unauthorized users. Also, you can add multiple e-mails by separating them by a comma.
[filr-uploader user-email="[email protected]"]
Styles and Settings
Go to Filr->Settings->Frontend Uploader to customise the look and feel of the uploader and configure some additional settings.
You can modify the headline, limiter, and button labels, add a custom icon (Unicode) for the uploader and modify the branding colors to match it with your design.
You can also activate a reload after a successful file upload. This is useful when using the uploader on the same page as the library shortcode to make the file immediately visible to the user.
