Compatibility Options

Within the plugin’s settings, you’ll likely find a dedicated section for Compatibility. Here’s what you might find.

  • Buddyboss (Enable/Disable): This option ensures compatibility with the BuddyBoss plugin, a popular solution for creating community-driven websites on WordPress. By enabling it, the File Renaming on Upload plugin avoids renaming profile upload files within BuddyBoss, preventing potential conflicts.
  • Gravity Forms (Enable/Disable): Activating this option addresses potential issues related to Gravity Forms, a form builder plugin for WordPress. It ensures that file uploads submitted through Gravity Forms function correctly despite filename renaming.
  • WPForms (Enable/Disable): Similar to Gravity Forms, enabling this option addresses compatibility concerns with WPForms, another popular form builder plugin for WordPress. It guarantees that uploaded files managed by WPForms are handled correctly even with file renaming activated.

Benefits of Compatibility Settings

By enabling the relevant compatibility options, you can achieve these benefits.

  • Reduced Conflicts: Compatibility settings minimize the risk of conflicts arising between the File Renaming on Upload plugin and other plugins you use for profile management, forms, and file uploads.
