I am developing a theme which needs uploading from front-end. I want to integrate plupload in my theme while keeping in mind that:

  • Uploading will be handled upon form submission, and not from the plupload regular method. This means that I just need the design of plupload, and not the uploading functionality. After selecting the files, when I submit the form (containing selected files and other information), I should be able to grab all the form info (including files info) in the target page. E.g. In user profile page, I want to update my avatar along with my other information.

Any help would be appreciated.

Plupload can fall back to HTML4 (form submission) file uploads. Just define the runtime to be HTML4 in the js runtime parameters.

I know the following plugin is using Plupload so I would probably just look at their source. Do not copy but I would use it to help get yourself going. http://www.tn3gallery.com/
