    Is it possible to require a user name and password for file upload?

    thanks.

    As in for logged in users, or were you just thinking a single user name and password before the upload field is shown? The second is very easy, but the first one is possible as well. If you want to have a form where it requires a password before the upload field shows, you can use conditional logic, where the upload field is hidden until an input field has the correct value. I highly recommend this as it is easy.

    Can Gravity forms produce in effect a private FTP site for multiple unique users ? And we can assign specific directories/ files to users to download ? Is there an upload size limit?

    thanks.

  4. Can Gravity forms produce in effect a private FTP site for multiple unique users ?

    Possibly. See below

    And we can assign specific directories/ files to users to download ?

    Because uploads are stored per form, one way to do this would be to create one form per customer (just duplicate the form, and embed the form in a page which requires a specific user log in to access.) That way, all uploads for one user (form) would be stored in the same directory.

    Gravity Forms will not help you with the downloads at all. There is no protection on the directory. You'd have to consider another way to control access to the uploads directory.

    Is there an upload size limit?

    There is no limit built into Gravity Forms. The file upload size is limited by your server configuration.

    Gravity Forms is not an exact fit for creating a private FTP site. It won't help you with downloads at all. You will have to do some work to create user-specific directories for storing the uploads. It can be done but it does not feel like a perfect fit to me. It depends on how much work you are willing to do and what compromises you can live with.
