General information for the website: A community website for time-lapse video lovers Kind of development: Customization of existing website Description of requirements/features: Hi guys, this is Marco and I'm the owner of a community website called Time Lapse Network (TLN). At TLN, photographers and video makers have the chance to basically get their video creations showcased on the website, for free. The submission process is as easy as they fill this form created using Contact Form 7 plugin: https://timelapsenetwork.com/contact-us/submit-your-timelapse-video/ The CF7 form submission currently generates a plain-text email message that I receive "designed" so that I can basically copy/paste it into a new blog post text field. I'm attaching one example of that, so that you can see already where I'm up to (and how this was designed in order to definitely minimize the work behind it). Plus, I need to copy / paste: - the post headline (the title) - the video embed code (submitted by users) - upload the attached image they send at the bottom of the above URL and voila! The blog post is created. I then only have to schedule these posts, in order to have a constantly fresh and updated website. Now I'm looking for someone to help me optimise and improve this workflow by almost fully automating the process. What I want to achieve is basically "adding an extra layer" of automation, in order to get the blog post auto-created using the data submitted by every user asking for their work to be showcased. PROJECT REQUESTED TASKS I want to add several extra fields to my CF7 form in order to have post tags pre-filled. I was thinking of the following: - 1 dropdown type field, for the Country (easy, and I will do that myself). The question is: I need the Country selected by the user to be a Post tag upon post save - 1 checkbox type field, to understand if the video is also a hyper-lapse (easy, and I will do that myself). The question is: I need the Post Category to automatically be assigned to "Video > Hyperlapse" subcategory if checked. - 1 "Wordpress tags-like" with auto suggest possibility, multi option, so that artists can input the camera they used for the video creation. I imagine them start typing "5D Mar" and the system proposes already "Canon 5D Mark II" or "Canon 5D Mark III" which are already existing camera tags in my Wordpress instance This would be a tag to be addded to the new posts tags. - 1 "Wordpress tags-like" with auto suggest possibility, multi option, so that artists can input the lenses they used for the video creation. I imagine them start typing "14mm" and the system proposes already "Canon 14mm f/2 L USM" which is already existing lens tags in my Wordpress instance. This would be a tag to be addded to the new posts tags. - 1 Extra control on the Attached Image, forcing users to upload images at a required resolution which I could possibly set/customise if needed somewhere. At the moment, CF7 fields only checks the size under 200K. I need to have them also 1100x600px. - 1 Extra action, which is taking the input data, and actually create a new post itself by filling the posts fields like the Title, Body Text, the Post Type, Category, the featured image with the one just submitted by the user, the tags, and saves it to the draft - When all this is done and the post is created, have an email message sent to me saying "A new post is available to be scheduled and published, check it at this URL:" so that I can in the end login, click PREVIEW, and if I'm happy, schedule it. I'm sure I missed many details and you have lot of questions before quoting the project probably, and I'm happy to answer to all of them in the comments. I know there are already open source CF7 plugins alternatives like https://wordpress.org/plugins/contact-form-7-to-post/ that do something similar, but as you can see I would like to have a bit more control and extra features. I know it's not that huge work but I do not have the time to do this myself, and need some experienced help - possibly without spending too much money, as I'm not making that much out of the site :) Thanks for your time in evaluating the project, and take care Marco Specific technologies required: Wordpress, CF7 Extra notes:
