1. Does the AA dialog box have a search feature? I have TBs of attachments and scrolling looking for an attachment I uploaded a year ago just doesn't work.

2. Is there a way to create a thread or add to a post through the backend of Wordpress? 

3. How do I embed an uploaded PDF so that my members can view the PDF instead of downloading it?

We have added the search feature in our to-do list, that will be update in feature releases.

You can do it with Right Click and press Open Link In New Tab.

@kylew, thanks for the response. I'm looking forward to the search feature, it would be a major help.

 

As for my 2nd question, I'm looking for a way to create a thread then add/post a topic or post in the backend of Wordpress and have it show up on the forum's frontend. Even as the Admin, I'm limited to some of the functionality I would like to use when adding/uploading attachments to the forum. I'll list examples below:

    - For me in particular, some plugins I use are essential but cannot be integrated with the frontend of wpForo. To get around that problem, using either Wordpress's Add New Post or Page, I generate whatever code I need using those other plugins then copy and paste that code into my forum using the TinyMCE source button. Hopefully, that made sense but the process is time-consuming and tedious. I would like to skip the middle step and create/post from the backend straight to the forum.

   - Again this would only apply to me as the Admin, any media I'm going to add to my forum is already on my server (over 8 TB) so it is redundant and extremely time-consuming to need to re-upload all of my content through the frontend of my forum. Most of my time is spent uploading media to my forum when it would literally take me seconds to move files to the proper destination on my server then I could post/add those attachments from the backend directly to the forum.

The PDF downloads when I try to Open Link In New Tab but that is not what I was talking about. I would like to embed the PDF directly into the post and have members view the PDF in forum, any recommendations?

I also have a 4th question. Like I was saying above, I generate the code I need in the backend of Wordpress then copy and paste it into my posts but when I do I need to remove my URL from the code for it to work. I'll give an example below:

Code generated by the plugin: [videopack id="41274"] https://whatevertheurlis.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/whateverthenameofthevideois.mp4 [/videopack]

 

What I need to change the code to for it to work: [videopack id="41274"]/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/whateverthenameofthevideois.mp4[/videopack]

I have to remove the URL from the code by hand for every single video that I post and once again it is extremely tedious and time-consuming. The original code works perfectly on normal Wordpress pages and posts but needs to be changed when added to the forum. Is there any way to get around this?

@gary-yates,

2-From Dashboard, you can create only Categories and Forums, to create a Topic or Post you need to do it from Front-End,

3-You can't view PDF in the website(post), For Chrome browser Go to browser settings and search PDF and Select "Open PDFs in Chrome" Checkbox after that The Right Click will work.

4-I don't have info and don't know how Videopack plugin works, I don't know why it generates URL with the code, try to ask the plugin support team.
