Gravity Forms – Regular URL for File Upload
add_filter( 'gform_secure_file_download_location', '__return_false' );
I do a fair amount of Gravity Forms to posts. Many times those posts have files, mainly images, associated with them that I’d like to have embedded in the post. Gravity Forms did some changes a while back to prevent people from guessing where files are (which is good) but the secure URL change also made my embed patterns break. Throwing the little line above in a plugin makes things work again (although at the risk of people guessing where other files may reside).
This post is going to be a bit like my head- a jumbled mass of things that are interconnected in my head but may not make any sense to anyone else. But what else is a blog for but for getting a better idea of what’s in your own head? Blogging in General The group I’m a part of (ALT Lab) has been struggling with blogging for a while now. We were/are aiming for a post a week for each member of the group. It’s not easy for many of us.I make sure it happens through the weekly bookmarks summary and my weekly photography posts. Workflow + technology is how I try to deal with personal failings around organization and consistency. It’s a pattern I’ve seen with lots of organizations and lots of individuals. You’ll have the usual pattern that varies somewhere between not knowing what to say, not having anything worth saying etc. The end result is that people don’t write. If you talk to them they’ll have a million things that would be interesting to read and that would be “worth” sharing. Maybe not having time gets referenced but given it’s a desired piece of our work, that’s not our issue. It feels mainly like it’s a holdover from time in formal education. Writing ends up becoming something […]
I’m going to hit a few of the things I’ve done with people around open educational resource creation.Looking back at the list, it’s clearly heavy on non-textbook models (which other people deal with better and more deeply than I) and heavier on student creation/participation. Many of these are tier-one data entry elements that would provide additional levels of sophistication as the data is aggregated. In the discussion, I’m going to ignore some complexities around the term ‘open’ in order to avoiding dragging the whole post down. My personal definition of open is very liberalIn certain ways I feel fighting for the use of material under copyright is a must in order to reclaim/maintain rights and prevent things from becoming more restrictive. I can also see how people want to completely avoid any chance of drama or legal fees. although I can see the value of Wiley’s R framework in a variety of conversations. Once again, I’ll try to move from simpler to more complex options. The Judah Will The Judah Will is a will that was transcribed and annotated in the digital history class this semester. Ryan Smith is the history professor behind the idea and has been more than awesome to work with. Right now the work is all in Google Docs but we’re looking at paths/tools/display options that […]
flickr photo shared by The U.S. National Archives with no copyright restriction (Flickr Commons) I believe this is safe but I’m no security expert. Every thing I could find on XSS issues was focused on stealing passwords. WordPress feeds are all public and require no login so I think it’s all good. StackOverflow seems to agree. With that hearty and confidence-inspiring endorsement, I give you this amazingly complicated plugin to allow access to all your WordPress feeds from other stuff (like Kin’s github rss reader)See how my site says success and Jim’s says failed? It’s only partially because he abandoned our country for Italy. It’s also because he doesn’t have this plugin turned on. All simple stuff really, the key piece was getting the right trigger pre_get_posts. Otherwise it was called too late. is_feed is the other little handy piece which Tim Owens mentioned . . . and I subsequently used.
