This extension allows you and your Clients to update projects via the frontend of your site
The Frontend Edit extension is a very important extension if you want to use UpStream via the frontend of your WordPress site.
The Fronted Edit extension will allow yourself, your users and your clients to interact with projects via the front of your site.
You can add and edit Tasks, Bugs, Files and Discussions directly within any Project.
After installing and activating the Frontend Edit extension, new buttons will appear on the frontend that allow logged in users to easily edit, delete or add new items which then appear directly within the project. The extension also allows users to upload files for the project and also to upload files within each ‘Bug’.
In the image below, these buttons are added by the Frontend Edit extension:
- The blue “Add Task” button
- The grey “Edit” icon
If you click the blue “Add Task” button, or the white edit button, you’ll see a pop-up window where you can update the project:
With the Frontend edit extension, users can also upload files via the frontend of the site:
Simple checkboxes will appear next to each Client User in the admin area to easily select which items they are allowed to publish.
Permissions for users can also be set on a ‘per-field’ basis.
Which means that you can still allow all fields to be visible but only allow adding and editing of certain fields. This allows for great flexibility.
The Frontend Edit extension uses the same template system as the main plugin, which means you can easily overwrite files by copying them and adding them to a folder within your own theme. You can then make any changes you need to that file.
This allows you to change the order of fields, add your own custom fields or any other layout changes you need.
As well as this there are also filters and action hooks to make the extension developer friendly.
- Add, edit and delete Tasks, Bugs, Files & Messages on the frontend
- Give Client Users access to add, edit and delete
- Simple checkboxes to restrict access for individual Client Users
- Developer friendly and easily customizable
