Receiving Images to my website - How?

Hi,

This is the first time I've posted so hello to all.

I have a basic website for a small business I run in the UK and am trying to redesign it but have a problem.

I want people to be able to send me the images for the order easily, and have seen other sites have an upload option where people can upload their images through the website but don't know how to do this.

I am using Xsite Pro for my web design as I'm only just learning html code.

Can anyone help?

Karen

It is possible to create web forms that can upload files to a server, but if you're a complete web design newbie using XSitePro I'm going to hazard a guess that this might be a little out of your league just now. To quote our web programming geek, "it can be done, but she will need to do quite a bit of learning".

Three suggestions:

1) Do a hunt around the net for tutorials on this subject. There are lots of them, but they might get quite technical. You can ask questions here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web_Dev ... dards/PHP/
If you give it a good whack and get really stuck, our programmer might be able to take a look at it.

2) Hire someone to create it for you. Check out elance.com.

3) Stick with email :)

You could also check out this site: http://phpfmg.sourceforge.net/home.php

I'm not sure how much of the process it automates, but it seems to allow attachments. It seems like they'll send like email attachments, but at least it's happening through a web interface and it's not asking your clients to fire up their email program.

Good luck!
Mark
