Re: Proposed method for file attachments and uploads
I agree with not doing the actions in the templates – that was a mistake WordPress did for awhile eh? The hooks can go inside
function edit_form in the core, no?
Just for clarification, because this one is important,
do_action('post_edit_form') should go AFTER the
</form> is closed.
do_action('pre_edit_form') should be before the
do_action('edit_form') should be inside the form.
If all the post_form’s are actions, so should be the edit_forms. I don’t think any are filters, wouldn’t make sense…?
This will help other plugins like my Signatures too.
Less template edits needed, makes it easier for users.
Of course I still have to support some 0.8.3 people so it’s going to be awhile before this solves all problems but at least newer installs can benefit.
