Post Fields - Attachments Other Than Images

  1. I am looking to use a Gravity Form that will create a new media post with a file attached (PDF or DOCX). I have used the Custom Post Type plugin and this works fine when you choose Image in the in the Post Fields section and upload an image. It create a new media item with the image.

    However I don't want the media type to be an image. I want it to be a PDF or DOCX file to allow staff to add Letters to a site, without going into the backend.

    Therefore is there a way to either:

    1. Add additional media types (mine types) to the "Image" fields in Post Fields so it allows PDF's and DOCX file as well as the normal image types; or
    2. Make Gravity forms attach files from the "File Upload" field under advanced fields to the post created by the form?

    Thanks in advance.

    First, the Custom Post Type Add-on wasn't created by rocketgenius, and as such, we can't support it. You'll have to contact the plugin author.

    In Gravity Forms, you can create a custom field and change the type to file upload. It will then let you select the allowed file types. Hopefully that helps.
