Hello, I am trying to create a form on my Joomla website. We want to create a form upload photos, create a folder for the photos, create tags for that photo, and finally create an article linking to the Gallery of those photos along with download links and description of the photos in the body of the article.
For the form creator I am trying to use BreezingForms, but if you can create this using another way I am fine with that. The photo gallery software needs to be JoomGallery as I have not found another gallery system that suits my needs. For tags I am using Jtags but again anything that works and has a tag search component I am fine with.
I have an outline of the total Form to be visualized by the user. Please reply and I will send that. I have included all the Joomla components here in case you want to try.
You can download Joomla 1.5 at [url removed, login to view]
Download JoomGallery 188.8.131.52 at [url removed, login to view]
Download JTags 1.4 at [url removed, login to view]
I have attached the BreezingForms zip file. This is a commercial component so please do not share with others.
What I want BreezingForms to do is to allow the user to: 1. Create a new folder in a specific directory, 2. Create an article with a title, section and category selection, and an input area for the article, 3. Enter tags that will describe the images entered, 4. upload the images through JoomGallery, 5. Preview the entire submission.
To do this I was thinking of the following Form.
Title: Enter title of the Photo Gallery to be submitted
## this will create a category folder for JoomGallery
## this will create the title for the Article Content
## this will also be the name of the files starting as JoomGallery asks
Section: Select the section that the article will be classified in
## this will select the section to organize the article
Category: Select the category within the Section previously selected
## this will select the category to organize the article
Tags: Enter the tags that describe the photos. I would prefer the tag system Jtags.
## this will create the tags of the photos uploaded
Description: Enter a description field
## field area for information describing the photos entered
## this should enter for the description of the JoomGallery area and for the main body of the article
Recaptcha: for security
##this will go to the next page which will be a preview of the section to confirm and go to the next page or back if necessary to make changes.
## Preview of the things
##in case there is an error that needs to be corrected
##Once confirmed the form should create the Category folder for JoomGallery to upload the pictures in the next page
Upload files through JoomGallery
##this will upload the file(s) to the user created category made in the first and second pages.
##This will take the user to the next page
Select image to be included in the article as a thumbnail from the JoomGallery upload
##this will go to the final page for confirmation
A thank you message for adding a photo gallery
##The final page should have a preview of the final article created
##the article will contain a thumbnail of the picture the user selected and to the right of the image the description of the Gallery uploaded.
## Below the image there will be links to the actual Gallery the photo is in
Button: Upload again
Button: Return to Main page
