Allow frontend user to upload images/pdfs?

Post by dekcolnu » Thu Oct 10, 2019 12:29 am

I might be missing documentation or configuration but I can't figure it out.

Why can't I upload attachments being a user on front-end, but I can as admin?

Is there a way to allow frontend user to upload? To be clear, I see the "Insert" area, I also see image, but it asks for a source without browse button. In admin there is a browse button so I can search on computer.

Thanks.

Hi,

a user can upload an image if you select to use the WYSIWYG editor in the frontend.

Hello Thorsten,

Thanks for responding.

I'm pretty sure I have that configuration set. I've attached a combined screenshot of settings to this comment.

Can you tell me if these are the correct settings, or if I'm missing something? nomediaupload.png shows the media upload but all I see is source where I can put a URL, no actual upload option

Thanks again.

Edit: I blurred out the template part, because it contained company information.

Hi,

I checked the code, the image upload is missing in the frontend. Sorry.

Pasting images should work, if that's enough.

Hi Thorsten,

Sadly that's not enough, we need front-end users to be able to upload.

Any way we can fix this on our environment?

Thanks again for looking.

Hi,

this will be a bigger task as this includes patches for the upload backend...

Hi,

phpMyFAQ 2.9 won't get any feature updates anymore, so please upgrade to 3.0 (and later 3.1)
