    I have this wordpress site I'm about to roll out that I'll need people to be able to go to a submit page and upload a picture in a contact form type deal that'll email to me or store on my server. Any ideas? I've tried a bunch of plugins like contact form 7 but it gives me all these permissions errors :)ugh:) I also tried the contact form by yoast but that doesn't have attachment functionality :)ugh:)

    help is much appreciated bros

    Are you new to web development? Besides being a basic function, there's a million code examples out there.

    yeah bro, brand new. I'm not looking for some hacked up attachment script that's going to get hacked easily (eggman, lol) but rather a solution created for wordpress that I can just drop in the plugins folder :coolugh:

    TDO Mini Forms is the only "plugin" way of doing this reliably with WP. I've tried umpteen thousand plugins, ended up just hard-coding it. TDO does the job though, just a bit fiddly.

    If I have a contact form, I generally use Contact 7. Don't know what your issue is. I do not recall it have a attachment function, but it shouldn't be too difficult to hook up. PM me if you are willing to pay. (Not I, but a programmer I use.)



    oh, and please tell me you are not going to have aannootthheerr peopleofwalmart type site? Although the funniest part of that site will be when Wal-Mart takes the domain away.

    Contact 7 is for contact forms where you want info collected and sent to email.

    TDO Mini Forms is for forms where you want info collected and stored inside your WP.. as posts, attachments, etc.

    Between the 2, you can pretty much do whatever you want.. just takes some fiddling. :)

    Pro tip: Web apps are so much easier to develop when you can program things yourself, and you're not a slave to searching google for ready made scripts.

    Pro tip: If you just want something done, and don't really care HOW, pre-made scripts/plugins/CMS's can cut your dev time down by shit-tonnes ;)

    Both the CMS route and the custom app route both have their time and place though.

    pro tip: you'll get hacked with the quickness if you don't know what you're doing and allow image uploads.
