Snax - Frontend Uploader

About

Snax is the first viral content uploader for WordPress.

It's a stand alone plugin (sold on CodeCanyon) delivered as a part of the Bimber theme so you don't need to pay for it.
In this section, we will cover only topics related to the theme's integration. For more information about Snax (installation, configuration etc), please refer to its online documentation.

How to separate Snax posts from regular posts?

Sometimes you want to handle the user-submitted posts separately. Snax allows you to do this by auto-assigning a category to all Snax posts. Then, you can exclude this category from displaying on the home page.

To auto assign the Snax posts to a category, please take the following easy steps:

  • Go to the WP admin › Settings › General
  • Find the Auto assign to category option.
  • Choose a category and save the settings.

To exclude the Snax posts from home page, please take the following easy steps:

  • Go to the WP admin › Appearance › Customize.
  • Go to the Home › Main Collection section.
  • Mark the Snax's category under the Exclude categories option.
