Uploading by logged-in users of sets of image files and associated data. Administrators design the upload form, and download the images and data.
EntryWizard was developed to cater to the needs of camera club competitions. In these competitions members may submit multiple images with titles and other data attached.
To display the upload form without a horizontal scroll, it may require a theme, or modification of a theme, that allows a fairly wide page.
Administrators use the software to design web forms, asking for information as text inputs and/or drop-down menu items as well as image files.
An example of the sort of rules the form is able to enforce might be something like this:
The administrators may set up any number of different "layouts" ( specifications of what information to ask for and what limits to enforce ), assigning an identifier to each.
The webforms thus designed may be incorporated into any page using a shortcode. Any number of different webforms may be created, and one of the layouts is assigned to each one.
Image upload items on the forms use HTML5 constructs where available to give the user immediate feedback if the image does not meet size or dimension requirements. ( Reportedly available in Firefox 4+, Chrome 7+, InternetExplorer 10+, Opera 12+, Safari 6+ ).
Administrators should use a recent browser to test the forms. Internet Explorer earlier than 9 will not fully support the administration interface.
Each webform is given a unique alphanumeric identifier, and this identifier is used within a shortcode to insert the webform in a page or post. Multiple webforms may appear on one page, although currently they have to be submitted individually.
Each webform separately may be set as "open for upload" or "closed". If it is open, the shortcode is replaced by the upload form. If it is closed, the shortcode is replaced by a message saying that the upload is closed. The webform may also be opened temporarily to specified members only.
When items have been uploaded, the administrator may either view the items online, or download them. A spreadsheet (in comma-separated .csv format) showing the uploaded data together with some optional information about the users, may also be downloaded.
The uploaded images may be attached to pre-existing pages for display in a gallery.
There is a fine-grained permissions system allowing administrators to grant an individual user various levels of control over the webforms and layouts. Only logged-in users may see the webform.
( Users of this plugin may also be interested in using Flexishow (https://sourceforge.net/projects/flexishow/) to run a slideshow of a selection of the downloaded images using the information in the spreadsheet. )
