    Gallery / image / Movie upload

    Hi, We are looking to implement a Members area in the front end of a 7.5 Umbraco site. In which a user can add multiple images and movies to their account.

    We also need an administrator who can view and administer other user's movies and images but we cannot use the CMS as Administrators and users cannot have access to the CMS.

    Can this be done in Umbraco 7.5? Or can anyone recommend a third party api that we could use like ImageVault (but cheaper).

    Thanks

    Jon

    Hi Jonathan

    It sounds like you might want to create a media folder in the Media section for each Member within which you can store any files they upload. You could use a Relation to relate the id of the Media Folder to the particular Member, or a picker.

    So the once a Member is logged in, you could find the Id of the Media folder, then write out any files contained in the Media section.

    An upload form for the Member, would take any uploaded files, create the Member's Media folder if it didn't exist, and then create the uploaded files as Media Items.

    Media by default in Umbraco is not protected, eg if you know the url of the uploaded file / image, anyone can access it; however their is a paid for package called MediaProtect, that enables you to set permissions on access to elements with the Media section:

    regards
