I just bought the Pro version 30 minutes ago and am already having a problem. I bought the Pro version because I needed the “File Upload” custom field for my website. When the user clicks the button “Select Files” it does nothing but return the user to the top of the page. The URL gives a “#” at the end of the URL meaning it's not doing anything. Is there anything that can be done? My progress is halted unless I get some feedback.August 12, 2015 at 10:22 am #66617
I got it to work with a weird fix after HOURS of testing. The “File Upload” custom field only works if its at the top of the form, meaning no other custom fields can be above it. I wanted the File Upload field to be at the bottom of the form but it just won't open the files.
I've already tried deactivating my plugins one by one and none of them are the issue. All settings are correct as far as I know. Is there anyone that can help me with this? I just bought this and I'm a little frustrated and disappointed.August 12, 2015 at 11:01 am #66627
You can place the file upload field on the bottom of the form. It should not create any issue. Did you check with default WP theme like twentythirteen or twentytwelve?. Please if the problem remain with the default theme then let me know.

I don't mind this issue as long as it works now. I do have another problem that came up under the same topic. When the user uploads a file to a post and its under a pending review, I check that post in the backend but the file they upload is not there.
So this is the user's front end publisher file upload custom field. They uploaded a file which I can see goes into my ftp directory: http://i.imgur.com/Ac71SRB.png
But when I check this same post in the WordPress backend publisher for pending review, it returns this information instead of the actual file they uploaded: http://i.imgur.com/SDQVlSu.png
Is it possible for the WordPress backend publisher to show the actual file or download link instead of the second picture provided?
In this particular case, all my plugins are deactivated (except Frontend Pro) and my theme is currently on twentyfifteen.August 12, 2015 at 1:10 pm #66667
Please navigate to Wp user frontend pro->Settings->General and enable this option- “Allow custom filed in post content area”. After doing this please check and let me know.

I have created a post with file attachment but it is showing fine. Please check and let me know.

Yes, it does show on the frontend post, but not in the backend post where we edit the actual post itself. The custom field does not show the link that was uploaded. It just shows custom field name “fileupload” and value “675” which should show the actual file itself where I am able to edit it.
In other words, it is only possible to upload a file through the frontend publisher but not the backend publisher for admins. Is that possible?August 12, 2015 at 4:56 pm #66730
I think we have a bit of a miscommunication! There's nothing wrong with the frontend post that is published for public viewing. I actually do not want people to see custom fields on post content area.
The File Upload custom field shows ONLY in the form when someone wants to add a post. As an admin, I am not able to see that uploaded file in the backend post editor before I approve that post for public viewing.
How am I able to edit their uploaded file as an admin if I can't see what they uploaded? All I see is a numerical value.August 12, 2015 at 6:26 pm #66753
Sorry, I hope you don't mind but that isn't what I'm actually asking. I think you're missing the point of my original post.
1. User uploads file in post
2. Post awaits for admin approval
3. I check said post in “Posts” in WP admin
4. Uploaded file is not seen in WP admin
I do NOT want to have to publish the post to see the uploaded file link in post content area. That is not my purpose. I want to be able to SEE the file uploaded with its link in WP admin. Like this: http://i.imgur.com/9iYUSGn.jpg
If that is not possible then I do not believe this plugin is what I had hoped it would do.August 13, 2015 at 4:21 pm #66902
You've been open for hours and have not replied.August 13, 2015 at 4:47 pm #66911
But I can see that the file is available in the backend post content area –August 13, 2015 at 4:53 pm #66914
Can you provide me a screenshot of what you see?August 13, 2015 at 4:56 pm #66916
Wow. It's in the screen options. WPUF Custom Fields was not checked. You could have told me that lol! This whole time…
