Is it possible for me to allow people to upload pictures/small files to my website?
An example of what i'd like is the comment box here which allows you to 'Add' files from either your own computer or another website. Is this possible? Thanks.

that would be yes and no.
There is one way i know of. go to www.jotform.com and you will be able to create a form where you can put in something where a user can upload something. The only downfall about that is that only 50kb is accepted

Hi skinnyeddy,

Right now it is not possible for visitors to upload files directly to your site. All content on your site needs to be posted by you. An alternative option is to have an email link where visitors can mail you content to upload.

Hi Minnie,

Are you looking for more info on using Jotform? If you would like to use their services, you would need to visit their site and create an account, customise and copy the HTML embed code provided.

Back on your SynthaSite, add an HTML widget to your page and paste the code in the HTML editor that opens on the page. Update your site so that the changes are effective on your website.

Please let me know if you were looking for other information.

Hello Kevin

You need to sign up for a form account such as Jotform, Form Assembly or Wufoo. Form Assembly and Wufoo are both integrated into your Sitebuilder. By adding a form, they have incorporated a file uploading system.

Here is a link to a post that will tell you how to add a form: Adding a form.

2. Another option is to put an email link on your site: Link to an email address.

I hope this information is helpful to you. If you have any further questions, please let me know.
