Uploading ACF images from a mobile device

  • Houston… we have a problem…

    So, I’ve been merrily building a site now for a few weeks and have immersed myself in the world of custom fields and custom post types etc. which were all new to me until now. There’s a lot to wrap your head around but I reached the point where I was happy to share my efforts with someone else so they could have a play around with it.

    Now, I’ve been building this site on my PC but methodically ensuring the responsive displays are all working and looking good etc. including the several forms I’ve built using the Front End form plug-in drawing from the ACF fields I’ve created.

    I was a bit confused, as a “newbie”, when I was told that they loved what I was doing but when they tried to finish filling in the form and upload an image in the relevant section the button wouldn’t work on their mobile…

    I was less confused when I Googled it and discovered that you can’t use the WordPress image upload screen on a mobile device…

    I decided there must be a straightforward solution to this as I can’t be the only person in the world who has created a WordPress site where front-end users can upload images from their mobile devices?! But the best I found (without risking money on something that might not work) was WordPress file upload. I haven’t tested if it even works yet but even it does I can’t see how I could integrate it with ACF and therefore include it in my front-end form!

    Please, put me out of my misery and point me in the right direction as to how I should tackle this – and if it’s not something I can resolve within ACF some pointers at least as to where I should be looking would be very gratefully received because if I can’t resolve it then I’ll have to rethink the entire set-up and I really, really don’t want to have to do that!

    Thank you in advance!
