Hello,
I'm sorry but it is not possible for others to add to your site; only someone with access to the site builder can add to the website.

You could have people send you images and enable comments on your blog if you would like though. Please let us know if you would like instructions for this.

I have a question that is like Actressaby's, but I want to know if it is possible for users to add video to your site like webs.com, or do you have to have some one email you the video?

Hi mE,

It is not possible for visitors to add content to your site. This gives you protection from spammers and also gives you control over the content of a site that is in your name.

If you would like people to contribute to your site they would need to email the video to you. You can add an email link to your page.

To add an email link to your website you can either type in your link text or use an image (use the "insert image" icon on the text editing toolbar to add an image inside a text widget).

1. Highlight the text or image and click "insert link" on the text editing toolbar.
2. A link editor will open up and the third option in the link editor dialogue box allows you to create a link to an email address.
3. Simply type in your email address and click "OK". To test that the link is working, save and preview your page. When you click on your email link, an email will open up in your default email program with the address already filled in.

I hope this helps. Please let us know if we can help you with anything else.

You could also use something like www.jotform.com which allows user to upload to certain amount. I forget what the file upload limit is. I have not used jotform for this facility so I am uneducated about this type of stuff. I've used many times for my forms. I really like using them. This may be an option for you to explore.

Hi Actressabby,

I did a bit of searching for you and found this website: CloudOsys. It lets your visitors upload media content directly to your website. Don't take my word for it though, I haven't used it because I think you have to pay for the full version.

Check it out and if you decide to use it, tell us what you think of it!
