Need Help With Image Gallery

  1. I have a membership site for artists.

    I want to allow them to upload images to a gallery on the site.

    In your sales video on the front page of the site (at the 0:34 mark) you show a visual example of this exact thing.

    So I bought the Plugin and now I can't figure out how to do that.

    I have searched the whole site. I have spent all night reading the support forums and the Documentation and I can't figure it out.

    It's one of the main features you're advertising in your main sales video so it MUST be possible. It shows the gallery with the file upload form underneath it.

    I'm not hooked on this exact solution.

    As long as:

    1.) Member (my student) uploads image.

    2.) It appears in the "Critique Gallery" so all members (students) can see it.
    I'm open to any way of implementing it. (I'm not a coder but I can sort of hack stuff together because I'm running Thesis 1.8.5)

    Also - one possible solution I just thought of was maybe forcing an image tag to be embedded on every upload and then use NextGEN gallery to dynamically generate the gallery from tags.

    Another possible solution I thought of was to change the upload path FROM the Gravity Form to a folder I use only for the Critique Gallery form and then point the NextGEN gallery to pull the images from that folder.

    ...but I'm not actually that crazy about NextGEN gallery so that doesn't HAVE to be the solution. I'm just trying to figure out how I can pull it off without much coding.

    Please help.

    That does not seem like too much work. To change the upload path, you can use the gform_upload_path filter http://www.gravityhelp.com/documentation/page/Gform_upload_path

    Does that work for you without too much programming?

  3. You could also do this with the built in WordPress [gallery] shortcode. The issue there would be updating this existing post by adding the attachment to the media gallery, and linking it to this post. That would be done with the gform_after_submission filter and wp_update_post.

  5. zayyarlwin - please post a link to your site where the form is embedded, so we can see what information you are accepting now. And please show us an example of what you want your posts to look like. We can help you with the specifics but we will need more information from you to be able to help.

  7. You can create a post like that with Gravity Forms. You need to see how the existing posts are storing the images. Once you determine that, accept image uploads in the same way in your form. Do you already have a form online that we can take a look at? We can help you fine tune it.

  9. OK, I submitted a test post with two images. Can you tell me the URL to the post which was created?

  10. Hi Chris,

    When we upload files are store in /mmoff/wp-content/uploads.
    But to display the post files are drawn from /mmoff/wp-content/themes/realtorpress/thumbs.

    Thanks

  11. It sounds like your theme is looking for the images in a specific location then. They must have some function which puts the images in that location, since that is not the normal wp-content/uploads location for the media gallery. You might have to move the images to the correct location after creating the post in Gravity Forms. A customization such as this might require the assistance of a programmer.

  12. As per your above advise, I understand that we can change the upload file location.
    Can you advise abit more detail of upload file change example.
    If my existing theme seem difficult to modified, is is possible to modified for Twenty 11 or 12.

    Thanks

  13. This functionality is tightly coupled to your 'realtorpress' theme and changing to 2011 or 2012 would not accomplish the same thing. I don't have any experience with that theme. But if you want to continue to use that theme, you will need to put the images in the location the theme is expecting. A customization such as this, as I mentioned previously, may require the assistance of a programmer who is familiar with both Gravity Forms and the realtorpress theme. We have a job board available for customization requests such as this http://www.gravityhelp.com/forums/forum/job-board

  14. I mean I am just testing that theme and I don't mind to switch to other theme.
    I would like to use the function of G-Form to direct post, is there any theme can work with G-Form with minimum customization.
    Thanks

  15. Gravity Forms will do its job and collect all the information you need. Specific integration with any theme is not something we can help with. Your application is very specialized but does not appear difficult to accomplish what you need. When you accept data with a Gravity Form rather than using the tools built in to the theme, you need to ensure you put all the data you collected in the right place. It's not difficult, but it might be tedious and take a while. You may need to consider hiring assistance with this application if it's beyond your capabilities. Or dig in, one problem at a time, and figure out how Realtorpress does it, and make your Gravity Form put the information in the same places in the correct format.
