I’d like to be able to customize some of the functionality of WPFB-Pro, and I’d like to do it correctly–without altering any of the actual source files. But I can’t find any documentation on any actions or filters that I can hook into.
An example: I’d like to customize the file edit form and add a product-chooser that will allow the user to select products (Woocommerce) to associate with a particular file (say, a PDF of a product brochure). Can I hook into the code that renders the form and append stuff to it?
Another example: I’d like to email a staff member whenever a file gets uploaded or updated. Can I hook into the “save” function to add a routine that will send an email?
WPFB-Pro is the only WP plugin that even comes close to meeting my client’s needs, but there are enough things that it doesn’t do that I’m seriously considering coding a custom plugin for them from the ground up. I’d much rather use WPFB-Pro with a few of my own tweaks, though, if I can, and if it’ll save on development time.2015-05-21 at 00:23 #4939gjonesParticipant
I’m already using WPFB-Pro as a mu-plugin so I can safely modify it where needed.
See: https://codex.wordpress.org/Must_Use_Plugins for more details
My issue is that I’m trying to include thumbnails for the WYSIWYG Editor Plugin file attachment tree. I think it would be a better user experience to preview the images before attaching them. Right now users can only see the names of each file.
How could this be achieved?2015-05-21 at 12:24 #4944FabianParticipant
I’m always supporting extensions for WP-Filebase that does not require code altering.
scottnic, just let me know what hooks, filters and actions, you need and I’ll put them into the next update.
gjones, Please open a new topic for this to keep things organized.
