    Hey team,

    I would like to create a page where logged in users can download files such as PDF’s, Images and Documents. I know there are many plugins out there that can do this, but I would rather set up a page to do this without the use of plugins.

    Is it also possible for me to create a link or button which allows the user to upload files from the front end page?
    Again, I know there there are plugins to do this, but would rather a more lightweight solution.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Is it also possible for me to create a link or button which allows the user to upload files from the front end page?

    It is definitely possible even w/ just the default Contact form 7.

    But it’ll need site customization as it’ll require you to setup a table on the database and custom code that will handle the data received from the upload file form you’ve created.

    Here’s an example code: http://chamankumar.co.uk/blog/uncategorized/contact-form-7-add-uploaded-file-to-media-attach-to-custom-post

    Alternatively, it may be better to just let a plugin do all the work if in case you find code snippets intimidating. πŸ™‚
