Monday, 24-April-2017. New version 3.11.0 of WordPress File Upload plugin has just been released.
This is an important update as it provides some new features and several bug fixes and security improvements.
This version addresses a request of many users, the ability to submit the upload form without a file, just like a contact (or any other type of) form. To do this, a new attribute has been added, allownofile, in the uploader shortcode. When this attribute is activated, then the file is optional and the form can be submitted (by pressing the Upload File button) even if a file has not been selected. When a form is submitted without a file, then the plugin adjusts its behaviour (e.g. progress bars are not shown, the messages change etc.). Features such as captcha, email notifications, redirections continue to work normally.
Another new feature of this version is extended scripting capabilities. They are not visible to normal users, however they are very useful for performing deep troubleshooting and debugging as well as advanced customizations for tailoring the plugin to user’s needs and custom requests.
You can check more details in the Release Notes of the plugin’s support page.
