Store file uploads for Contact Form 7

Description

By default, Contact Form 7 dose not keep data it sends trough it’s contact forms.
While plugins like Flamingo save that data, uploaded files are not added to Media Library.
This plugin will save uploaded files to Media Library before email is sent by CF7.
This plugin will raise an event with the the full file path & name.
Subscribe to nmr_create_attachment_file_name filter to get and/or update data before attachment is added to media library.

// The filter callback function.
function example_callback( $file_name ) {
    // (maybe) modify $file_name.
    return $file_name;
}
add_filter( 'nmr_create_attachment_file_name', 'example_callback', 10, 1 );

Subscribe to nmr_before_insert_attachment filter to be able to change attachment attributes: caption and description are ‘post_excerpt’ and ‘post_content’.
For other attributes, check documentation for wp_insert_attachment.

// The filter callback function.
function before_insert_attachment_callback( $attachment ) {
    // (maybe) modify $attachment array.
    return $attachment;
}
add_filter( 'before_insert_attachment_callback', 'example_callback', 10, 1 );

This plugin will send the final attachment id if you are interested in getting other details, like attachment url.
Listen to nmr_create_attachment_id_generated action.

// The action callback function.
function example_callback_id_generated( $attachment_id ) {
    // (maybe) do something with the args.
    $url = wp_get_attachment_url( $attachment_id );
}
add_action( 'nmr_create_attachment_id_generated', 'example_callback_id_generated', 10, 1 );

Thanks! I spent a day wondering why the temporary file was not longer there then another day finding out that CF7 is moving that file. So this is exactly what I was trying to figure out. It does look like files could be overwritten if they are uploaded with an existing name. You can probably do something like the following to ensure files get unique names and are not overwritten. // Get the path to the upload directory. $wp_upload_dir = wp_upload_dir(); $upload_path = $wp_upload_dir['path']; $unique_filename = wp_unique_filename($upload_path, basename($filename)); $attachFileName = $upload_path . '/' . $unique_filename; copy($filename, $attachFileName); // Prepare an array of post data for the attachment. $attachment = array( 'guid' => $attachFileName, 'post_mime_type' => $filetype['type'], 'post_title' => preg_replace('/\.[^.]+$/', '', $unique_filename), 'post_content' => '', 'post_status' => 'inherit' );
