php – Adding image upload in tag section – WordPress plugin development


I’m developing a WordPress plugin, and I’m trying to add an additional file field into the tag section. Check the screenshot:

I have successfully added the field, but I can’t save it. Also, the image is not appearing in the Media.

Here is the code that I tried:

public function __construct() {
    add_action( 'post_tag_add_form_fields', array( $this, 'eg360_add_tags' ) );
    add_action( 'post_tag_edit_form_fields', array( $this, 'eg360_edit_term_tags' ), 10, 2 );
    add_action( 'created_post_tag', array( $this, 'eg360_save_tags' ) );
    add_action( 'edited_post_tag', array( $this, 'eg360_save_tags' ) );

// Adding the input file field to tag section
public function eg360_add_tags( $taxonomy ) {
    <div class="form-field">
        <label for="eg360-featured-image"><?php _e( 'Featured image', EG360_TEXT_DOMAIN ) ?></label>
        <input type="file" name="eg360_featured_image" id="eg360-featured-image"/>
        <p><?php _e( 'Add featured image', EG360_TEXT_DOMAIN ) ?></p>

// Adding the input file field to the edit tag section
public function eg360_edit_term_tags( $term, $taxonomy ) {
    <tr class="form-field">
            <label for="eg360-featured-image"><?php _e( 'Featured image', EG360_TEXT_DOMAIN ) ?></label>
            <input name="eg360_featured_image" id="eg360-featured-image" type="file"/>
            <p class="description"><?php _e( 'Add featured image', EG360_TEXT_DOMAIN ) ?></p>

// Save the field
public function eg360_save_tags( $term_id ) {
        sanitize_text_field( $_POST['eg360_featured_image'] )

Also, this code above works for all other fields except the file input field.

Any help will be appreciated.
