  4. (Required) Enter the file extensions without periods for the files you want to allow users to upload separated by one space.
  5. (Optional) Enter a message you want displayed after the user uploads a file.
  6. Choose whether or not to display upload form again after the first file has been uploaded to SugarSync.
  7. Choose whether or not to delete the file located on your server after it has been uploaded to SugarSync.
  8. Click Save options.
  9. Create a Page, Post or Widget to insert the shortcode into.
  10. Insert [simple-wp-sugarsync] where you would like the form to display.
  11. Click Save or Publish.
  12. Visit the location to confirm everything is working properly.

Is this your first WordPress plugin

No but I make no promises that it will work for you.

I am getting a message saying “This plugin will not work without CURL enabled”

Ask your hosting provider to enable CURL.

I am on a VPS or Dedicated server and this plugin still won’t play nice

You have a few options:

  1. Check your phpinfo to ensure PHP was compiled with CURL

  2. Check disabled_functions to ensure it doesn’t contain curl_init
