Starting from the version 1.6.1 (Premium), you can allow your users to submit their videos from your site front-end. Simply follow the steps below to activate this feature.
STEP 1. Enable Site Registration
Only the registered users can submit their videos. So, enable “Anyone can Register” option under the WordPress Admin Panel / Settings page. This is a WordPress core setting and gives permission for your users to register an account on your website.
STEP 2. Configure User Permissions
Go to your WordPress Admin Panel / Video Gallery / Settings / Users page. This is the page that holds all the settings related to the user video submission. All the options on this page are self-explanatory. You can configure what videos the user can add/upload, the default post status, email content, etc.
STEP 3. Configure the site front-end
Then, go to your WordPress Admin Panel / Pages menu. Find the pages with the title “User Dashboard” and “Video Form”. Simply add these pages as your site menus through the WordPress Admin Panel / Appearance / Menus page.
These pages are added by the plugin dynamically when you activate our Premium version. Each page has its own purpose.
- Video Form: The form page that allows your users to submit their videos.
- User Dashboard: The page that lists all the user videos with the option to edit/delete their existing videos, add a new video, etc.
That’s it. Easy Huh?
You can configure the plugin to publish the user submitted videos only after the admin approval. You simply need to set the “Default New Video Status” as “pending” from the settings page for this work. The site admin will be notified through email when a user submitted his video and it’s pending approval. Also, the user is notified through email when his video is approved/published. You can customize the email content sent by the plugin.
