File Upload - Add to "Media Library"

    I have a form where logged in users upload 10 images for a "sample" gallery on our website. How can I have it so that each of the 10 file uploads are automatically added to the "Media Library" in wordpress so I can easily create the gallery as an admin. Otherwise I have to download the images and then re-upload them into the "Media Library".

    Thanks

  2. If your visitors are uploading files, they are not added to the image gallery by default. Only post images will be moved to the media gallery. You can use the wp_insert_attachment function to take the uploaded images and move them to the media gallery:

    You could use the gform_after_submission hook to run your code which calls wp_insert_attachment. http://www.gravityhelp.com/documentation/page/Gform_after_submission
