I'm using Wordpress Form Manager to allow users to post from the front end and I need to place values for the post in different spots in a single post template. The code they offered doesn't return anything in or outside the loop. For instance I need to put the url of the file upload into a script to play a song. The tutorial says use this function but it doesnt return anything. Anyone have any experience with it?

<?php fm_summary_get_item_value('song-mp3'); ?>

Update: Still stressing over this. I tried something I found in a thread that somebody said allowed them to turn a value into a custom field but it doesn't seem to work the way I have it.

 function my_custom_field($postID) {
$my_custom_field_value_var = fm_summary_get_item_value('song-mp3');
$my_get_lastID = wp_get_recent_posts('1');
$my_thePostID = $my_get_lastID['0']['ID'];
add_post_meta($my_thePostID, 'song_mp3', $my_custom_field_value_var, true);
add_action('fm_form_submission', 'my_custom_field');

Look at this..


  • Yeah I saw that but it actually returns a list of all submitted date for that form which I dont understand the point of. So if you call a value for say the title...then you get a list of all the titles submitted with that form. Commented Apr 7, 2012 at 6:40
