Thank you Mahi.

I went through the process. All settings were as you mentioned. Just for kicks, I hit save again. Now it works.

thank you for your prompt reply!

I’m getting the following error:

I tried to uninstall it then reinstall it. Any advice on how to fix this?

Thanks,

Bram,

First, nice to meet you as well. I’ve always longed to visit Indonesia, despite being a world citizen from the opposite side of the globe. Maybe if I give you a call sometime, we can enjoy chicken together someday. I’d enjoy that!

I am sorry to hear that your theme developer has shut off their support. The web is full of fly by night theme developers. I just hope yours is not one of them. Given that, I have run into a few of those crooks myself. I make sure that any new venture I embark upon is matched with a new and fully supported team. I am not saying that you’ve made mistakes. It’s only my preference that I start over fresh in a new project, rather than sacrificing any code I already own.

Given that, I know that if something can be done, the support team behind this plugin can help.

If not, and if you do not have a large membership base, I would seriously look at a complete rebuild. I have had to do this a time or two, which has been hard. In the end, I have come out on top.

If you’d like to connect privately, give me a shout to my email. I’m not sure if this is against any TOS here, but you can reach me at hippfilms (at) gmail (dot) com.

Anyway, best of luck,

Michael

Hi Bram,

I do wish I had answers to your questions, but like you, I am new to all of this. But I can tell you this, I have found the right questions to ask of those who develop our WordPress themes and plugins.

Here is what I would do if I were you. I would contact your theme developer. I would tell them that you have a need for your users to create posts, but only on the front end. I would also tell them that you have a “form creator” that makes this happen, but in order for your users to use this form, you need the meta keys that are used for “Price”, “Price Suffix” and “Listing Type.”

Give your image, you know that the first two use the WPUF Pro “text” custom field. You’d want to choose those for price and price suffix – making sure you input the proper meta key from your theme developer in each. Then the listing type would be a “Radio” custom field. I have to say that I do not know how the radio field works though. I see that it has a meta key, but I’ve not use it.

If you’d like, you can look at what I have done thus far on my site, using the WPUF Pro plugin. If you go to http://spoondish.com/, the register function was created using WPUF Pro. I have also created the ability for users to submit a video (which was only offered as a backend option from my theme creator). If you create an account, then click on the “Recipe Review” option, you will see WPUF Pro at work.

You need to know that at the time of this posting, Spoondish.com is a work in progress and it may or may not reflect this plugin. (This is for those people in the future who may read this post and spoondish.com may relate to digging up sand crabs in a human post apocalyptic Las Vegas).

All I needed was the meta key information from my theme or plugin developers to make this all work for me.

If you have any further questions from me specifically, please post here. Just know that when you post your own thread in this forum, you will get amazing support. Mahi was the one who helped me help myself, so I recommend asking the developers for direct assistance.

Best of luck,

Michael

Hi BRAM,

I’m not going to hijack your new thread, but I wanted to let you know what I have learned since posting this topic.

So you know, I am new to both WordPress and this plugin. Given that, I now know how to properly extend this plugin to make it do what I want it to do.

First, I learned that WPUF Pro allows you to put in general functions, like text fields and text areas. There are several others, but these two functions applied to my needs.

When you create a form, you will see a list of options to the right. If you select text for example, a field becomes available in the main area. Under this new option (text) is an area that requires a meta key. Now, I had no idea what a meta key was. I was however impatient enough to bug my theme developer about the custom theme I purchased. In talking about the custom field he put into my theme, he gave me a few important clues. I didn’t know it at the time, but Mahi picked up on it right away.

My theme developer gave me some meta data. You can find that in this post. In that meta data was a “post_ID.” That ID was the meta key I needed. In my case, it was videoembed_videoembed.

Now, Mahi helped me with my form, he used a “text area” custom field and put “videoembed_videoembed” in the meta key section. After that was saved, I had all of my themes video embed functions available in the form for my users.

Now that I have learned where and how to use these meta keys, I have incorporated other plugins into my form. All I have had to ask the plugin developers is what meta keys they have used for their backend forms. Knowing this, along with the kind of field necessary, I can bring everything to the frontend.

I hope this helps you, or anyone else seeing this. I am coming from a complete noobie perspective. Most of this might be obvious to most, but not to me.

Have a great night,

Michael

Perfect!!

Upon one final check, everything looks wonderful. The only remaining issue is how the author info is displayed. It’s all scrunched up and the background looks bad. Any idea why this would be?

Below is that image again for your reveiw.
