Edit the "acf-gallery-side-info" content

  • Hi all,

    I want to edit the “acf-gallery-side-info” <div> content of the Gallery Field in order to add a “download” link to the “actions” <p>.

    To explain my wish : We are an association and we use some parts of the backend as working space and some Gallery Fields in Custom Post Type are used to store files. If someone put a file in a Gallery Field I want to be able to download it with no needs to open the WordPress Media Manager.

    I first try to add the link with some Jquery but the “acf-gallery-side-info” <div> is populated on click so my code doesnt works :

    	function acf_gallery_download_link() {
    		if ( !is_admin() ) { return; }
    		<script type='text/javascript'>
    			( function ( $ ) {
    				$( document ).ready( function () {
    					$('.acf-gallery-side-data .actions .acf-gallery-edit').before('<a href="MyURL" target="_blank" class="acf-gallery-download">Download</a>');
    			}( jQuery ) );
    	add_action( 'admin_footer', 'acf_gallery_download_link' );

    I found the “acf-gallery-side-info” <div> content is populated in the plugin by the function render_attachment but it’s “Bad” to edit directly the plugin =D.

    Do you know how I can do it ?

    Thanks all !

  • See the JS API documentation. After ACF inserts the sidebar in the gallery it runs the append action The value $el here is the sidebar data. You could possibly create an action on this hook that could insert the download link. (?)

    Unfortunately, that’s as much as I can give you. I don’t know all the details on exactly what would need to be done to accomplish this, only the place to start looking.

  • Hi John,

    I needed a looooong time to solve the entire issue but the JS API append action is exactly what I was looking for.

    If someone want the complete solution I use in a PHP function file :

    // Add a AJAX action to get attachement URL by ID in JS
    add_action( 'wp_ajax_get_media_url', 'get_media_url' );
    add_action( 'wp_ajax_nopriv_get_media_url', 'get_media_url' );
    function get_media_url() {
    	if ( isset( $_POST['att_id'] )) {
    		$attachement_id = $_POST['att_id'];
    		$attachement_url = wp_get_attachment_url( $attachement_id );
    		echo $attachement_url;
    	} else  {
    		echo '#';
    // JS to add the download link
    function acf_gallery_download_link() {
    	if ( !is_admin() ) { return; }?>
    	<script type='text/javascript'>
    			( function ( $ ) { $( document ).ready( function () {
    				acf.addAction('append', function( $el ){
    					var attachement_id = $el.find(".actions").children(".acf-gallery-edit").attr("data-id");
    					var data = {
    						'action': 'get_media_url',
    						'att_id': attachement_id,
    					$.post(ajaxurl, data, function(response){
    					     var attachement_url = response;
    					     $el.find(".actions").children(".acf-gallery-edit").before('<a href="'+ attachement_url +'" target="_blank" class="acf-gallery-see" data-id="'+attachement_id+'">See</a>');					
    		}( jQuery ) );
    add_action( 'admin_footer', 'acf_gallery_download_link' );
