How to upload file using WordPress

File Upload with Wordpress

WordPress is popular as a blogging application and we can modify WordPress more & more.Recently I wanted to upload an image in In This tutorial, I am going to explain how to upload any file using WordPress.

Here, I am going to share code which you just need to copy and paste.After that just change file_name value with desired one and your file upload code is ready.

Let’s go through the code a little.

First of all, Let’s create or write HTML code which create format like a table.

if ( ! function_exists( 'wp_handle_upload' ) ) 
        require_once( ABSPATH . 'wp-admin/includes/file.php' );
        $uploadedfile = $_FILES['file_name'];
        $upload_overrides = array( 'test_form' => false );
        $movefile = wp_handle_upload( $uploadedfile, $upload_overrides );
        if ( $movefile ) {                       
            echo "File is successfully uploaded.\n";                        
        } else {
            echo "Possible file upload error!\n";

In above code, I have used wp_handle_upload function which is basically used to handle the image uploads to the uploads directory in wp-contents.

Next, is if you want to make upload to specific extensions, you can write below condition before wp_handle_upload called.

$filetype = wp_check_filetype('image.jpg');
   //wp_handle_upload function

That’s all there is to it.Anyway, I hope that helps some of you.If you have any questions please let me know via the comments.

  1. Umm… ok… I can easily max out a download on a 60mbit or 100mbit connection if the remote server can provide the bandwidth, I don’t need “multithreading” to do so, any modern browser can handle that type of data without a problem.
