Enable Basic Uploader for frontend comments

  • Hi guys,

    I was wondering if you knew how to enable the basic uploader on the front end when the fields are within the comments form?

    I am using the Gallery field (among others) but i cant seem to see anything about it.

    Any help would be appreciated.


  • Hi @daz

    Please keep in mind that you can’t use the basic uploader for the gallery field. But if you use the image or file field, you can try this code:

    // force basic uploader for a certain field
    function my_acf_force_basic_uploader( $field ) {
        // don't do this on the backend
        if(is_admin()) return $field;
        // set the uploader setting before rendering the field
        acf_update_setting('uploader', 'basic');
        // return the field data
        return $field;
    // target the field using its name
    add_filter('acf/prepare_field/name=file_field_name', 'my_acf_force_basic_uploader');

    I hope this helps 🙂

  • How can a ‘Featured Image’ field be targeted with this? When adding a ‘Featured Image’ field in ACF it doesn’t get a ‘name’?
