Default How can visitors to site upload photos and personal details

I'd like visitors to my site to be able to upload photos and personal details. Could this be handled automatically with WebPlus using a form-filling process where the details and photos would be transferred to a gallery on the site?
Thanks in advance.

Im not sure if this is possible, Im thinking about doing the same thing.

It would be nice to have a user uploaded gallery automatically. Im trying to do a wacky red nose day photo comp and im having to resort to people emailing me the images...

What a great fun(d)raiser

Short of using an add-on app, have you considered using the SWR smart object ' blog' and have folks include their images via a hyperlink?

This is also a great way to attract lots of spammers and their junk postings.

No.

It wouldl require either:

1. Server-side scripting to receive the details and photos from your form then add them to a gallery on the server.

2. Using a ready-made (and free) photo gallery like Gallery or Coppermine or similar. Some web hosts include one or both of these with their hosting packages. If not, these are easy to install.

Picture taking. It's a snap!

Good photography. It's complicated.

Many thanks for your prompt and helpful replies.
Yes, I was thinking about the smart object or also a form and e.g. instead of uploading a CV, uploading a photo plus details. I'll give it a try.
Thanks again,
Brian

With the form method, you would still need to add the form contents to a page on your site.

With the blog method, others add their own infor and a hyperlink to their image.
