    Cool Can customers upload pictures?

    We want to allow our customers to upload pictures of their painted models, or battle scenes, to our website into some sort of gallery page (I guess they would upload the file, and we would manually add to a gallery page?).

    What would be the best way to achieve this, and would there be any security issues (ie. someone uploading code instead of a picture?)

    Thanks,

    John

    You can create a Form and use an "upload file" Field to upload your pictures.

    Unfortunately, Bluepark doesn't have a gallery feature as such but you can make your own.

    Yes, I managed to bang this together using a page with a form for the upload, that then emails the images to me for a manual upload to the blog...

    That will do for now. Just need customers to upload some decent images now...

    I'd consider using instagram or similar and embed it into the site

    Ho would I embed instagram, and would that have any SEO benefits for the site?

    Here you go https://www.instagram.com/developer/embedding/

    I don't see there would be SEO benefits, but it's an easy way to create a gallery on your site based on a photo sharing site people are already using.
