General question

  1. I just bought Gravity Forms and I want to use it to enable site visitors to login and upload photos. Can anyone direct me to the correct instructions for doing this? Thank you SO MUCH!

  2. Are you looking for people to create posts with form submissions, or simply allow users to have access to your WordPress site to upload files via the admin?

  3. Hi! I'm looking for the ability for any visitor to our site to create a login and upload photos for submissions to say, a contest or somesuch. I do NOT want them logging into WordPress with any rights.. esp. admin. This is for the random visitor, not people running the site. I hope that make sense! I was led to believe from reading about Gravity forms that this was possible.

  4. Sure, but I'm confused that you want people to "login" but not have any rights. If you use the user registration add-on, it creates users on your WordPress site, which means you will have to choose a role for them to have. The available roles are: http://codex.wordpress.org/Roles_and_Capabilities

    Once you have decided on a role, you can set up your user registration form that is tied to the user registration feed/add-on. Here is the documentation for that:
    http://www.gravityhelp.com/documentation/page/User_Registration_Add-On

    Once that is setup you can create your submission form, using post fields (if you want these images to go to a post), which can be found here under "post fields":
    http://www.gravityhelp.com/documentation/page/Form_Fields

    If you don't want these submissions to become posts, you can simply use the file upload field on your form.
