Set Up File Repository?

  1. I want to make absolutely sure that GF is exactly what I am looking for before I purchase the software. I think my request is reasonable, but cannot find the answer on your site.

    I want to setup a repository of midi files for user's to submit and download from.

    There would be a disclaimer on the page declaring that they are the author of the midi file (user created content) and that they are donating the midi file without an expectation of compensation.

    Once the person clicks Agree on the checkbox they would then see a screen where they would fill in their name, e-mail address, the song's group name (e.g. KISS, Judas Priest, Metallica, so on) the name of the song and the type of file. e.g. gp3, gp4, gp5, midi etc.

    Then they would select the file, click upload and the song would go to a PREDETERMINED place that I have set aside. e.g. wp-content/uploaded songs for example.

    Immediately, it would be available to others around the world to then download the song, sortable by artists name, name of song, type of song.

    Is this something your program can do or not?

    Thanks, Mike

  2. Gravity Forms could do this, but it would be all in how you set it up. It's not going to do everything for you. You would have to be creative in how you use Gravity Forms and how you setup your WordPress theme to display the information. You may also have to do some minor customizations using available hooks and filters.

    So i'd say if you are a developer with experience working with WordPress then it would be doable. If you aren't, then you may want to find another solution.

    Gravity Forms can do practically anything, but ultimately it's just a powerful tool and it's all in how you utilize it and customize it.
