Image Upload added to Photo Gallery

  1. Hello there,

    I have read many threads regarding image uploads/adding them to a post.

    This is perfect for me because I would like to have a form where users can upload around 5 "Post Images", these images get added to the appropriate pages' gallery, and then on that page just use the wordpress gallery shortcode to display all the images in the gallery.

    So here are my questions:

    1. Can users upload multiple files at once (not sure if this has been added to the features yet)

    2. Can the "Post Image" be added to a Pages gallery?

    3. Is it possible to be able to approve certain images that people upload to be displayed in the gallery? Instead of every image being displayed automatically?

  2. 1) Users can upload multiple images, but not using the same field. You would have to add a Post Image field for each upload you want to allow. Multiple files with a single field is not currently supported.

    2) The Post Image field uploads the image and it is then processed by WordPress where it is added to your Media Library and as an attachment to the post that is created. So yes, it would appear in the gallery for that Post.

    3) There is no built in image moderation. If you want to moderate things then what you would do is configure the form so that the Post that is created is a Draft. When a form is submitted, you could then review the Post that is created and view the gallery images for that post and edit/delete them at that time before choosing to Publish the post.

  3. 1) No problem, they can upload an image 1 at a time.

    2) I would like the attachment images to be added to a Page and not a Post. I assume that is still fine?

    3) I would like all of the images being uploaded to be added to the same Page. So does the form (image uploader) automatically create a new post/page? or can I specify that the images all go to the same page?

  4. Gravity Forms out of the box only creates WordPress Posts. It does not create Pages or Custom Post Types.

    HOWEVER you can customize it to create Pages or Custom Post Types using hooks/filters and some custom code. You can also create Pages or Custom Post Types using a 3rd party Add-On that is available here:

  5. This is really something that should be updated. Multiple image uploads in one field. Preferably drag and drop.

  7. Yes, multiple images would be nice.
    In order to have the visitor upload 4 photo's, I now use 4 upload fields.
    That works, but multiple images in one go would be a bit more convenient.
    Cheers.

    Thanks Eagerbob, probably better to post in our Feature Requests though if you want our developers to see your request.
