User-Submitted Image Gallery with Search (5 posts)

    I'd like to create a user-submited image gallery where users can add a doctor, or select from one that has already been listed, so that they can upload their surgery photos.

    Users should be able to search the images by doctor or by surgery type. It would be great if each photo could have additional information attached (like date of surgery, comments, etc)

    Is there a plugin for this? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!

    This could be as simple as a posts category with image galleries in the posts. Each category could be the doctors name, and or sub categorie could be surgery type. What would you want or expect a plugin to add? It will probabbly depend on the user posting method you choose. There are so many ways to go with something like that.

    If it was done using the posts categories way, would I have to manually enter new doctors names?

    Thank you for you're help, I'm new to WordPress and am learning the ropes. I definitely want the images to have many fields of required info: date of surgery, revision plans, comments

    Users can create categories too. You could also use tags if you want to.

    if you want required feilds you may want to use a form plugin for submitting the posts. Images can be attached, but I don't know that the [galery] shortcode can work in a form. The gallery shortcode may have to added to the output in single.php for each post to automatcally show a gallery.

    or you could add feilds to the image attachmant settings. I've seen code for that but maybe there's a plugin.
