This question already has an answer here:
I have a register form with upload field and when the user registers i create a new post. I need to have the uploaded picture on the featured image of the post.
I have see something like this but i don't understand all :s
$upload_dir = wp_upload_dir(); $image_data = file_get_contents($image_url); $filename = basename($image_url); if(wp_mkdir_p($upload_dir['path'])) $file = $upload_dir['path'] . '/' . $filename; else $file = $upload_dir['basedir'] . '/' . $filename; file_put_contents($file, $image_data); $wp_filetype = wp_check_filetype($filename, null ); $attachment = array( 'post_mime_type' => $wp_filetype['type'], 'post_title' => sanitize_file_name($filename), 'post_content' => '', 'post_status' => 'inherit' ); $attach_id = wp_insert_attachment( $attachment, $file, $post_id ); require_once(ABSPATH . 'wp-admin/includes/image.php'); $attach_data = wp_generate_attachment_metadata( $attach_id, $file ); wp_update_attachment_metadata( $attach_id, $attach_data ); set_post_thumbnail( $post_id, $attach_id );
But how to get the image url because the image is not yet sent ...
