Can wordpress do this? (5 posts)

    Hi gurus, I'm a newbie in wordpress but installing this on my hosting really gets my interest. My question is...
    I know wordpress can do a website with a user login but can it make a user filed its own photo gallery? Up to unlimited users filing their own photo gallery? sample website... http://www.deviantart.com/

    please if you know how, tell me what I need to know. thank you!

    I'm not sure offhand of an actual plugin for this, but I know that you can set wordpress up to allow users to upload files (there are security risks with this, so be careful). There is probably a plugin for that.

    But a simpler solution you might consider is using a feed from Flickr. There is a plugin somewhere for that, look around.

    I think you need to know the basic golden rule: the right tool for the right job.
    WP is not a gallery/image upload application. Despite its extreme flexibility, probably, it is not the best tool for what you want.

    There are plugins for photo galleries in WordPress.

    But something like "Gallery" is what you would be better off with in this case:

    you can also bridge gallery to wordpress, if you need or want wordpress for a blog. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wpg2/
    it works great. you can set gallery up so users can have their own gallery.
