    Can Gravity forms be used to create a form on a homepage that allows any user, regardless of user access level, to submit a post with a photo, video, link, or pdf and then redirect user to their post page.

    Thank you in advance to anyone that knows. We are thinking about purchasing Gravity and would like to know this before doing so.

    Thank you.

  2. Yes, Gravity Forms can be used to create a post without requiring the user to login.

    It does support photos, and links, and file uploads. As for videos, it depends on how you plan on implementing these. It doesn't currently upload videos to the Media Library. It supports file uploads and then having the ability to store the path to that file as a custom field. So if you do your videos based on the video path stored in a custom field, yes it can do videos.

    Gravity Forms does this through the use of Post Fields in the Form Editor. Only Post fields create WordPress post data. There are a variety of post fields: Post Title, Post Body, Post Excerpt, Post Tag, Post Category, Post Image and Post Custom Field.

    For videos, your users can easily embed videos hosted on other sites with the embedly plugin.

    Instruct users to simply copy and paste the link to their videos on youtube, vimeo, ustream, etc. The plugin automatically embeds the videos, and its easy for your users.
