    How can I upload an image with a text description

    Asked by mgocglasgow13 on December 05, 2013 at 08:32 AM

    I want to be able to let members of our car club uplaod images of items that they have for sale and combine this witha a text description so that with a grid view potential buyers can see the image and the text all in one viewing. A thumbnail would be good with a link to a larger image.

    Thanks for contacting us.

    You may try using our Submission view app so that you can accomplish what you need. You will only need to create your form that includes a File Upload feature and a Textarea where the form submitter will enter the description. After that you can proceed to conect your form with the suggested app. In that way you will be able to display the uploaded file (image) and at the same time the description of the image. You can find the app and its description at this link: http://apps.jotform.com/app/submission_view

    Please let us know if you need further assistance with this.

    Thanks

    Hello. I could not replicate the issue you mentioned I can copy and paste the code from the Submission View app using a test form.

    You need to copy the iframe embed code at the very end of the step. For best performance, please use Google Chrome browser.

     

    If that does not work, please try clearing your browser's caches and retry again. Please let us know if this issue persists. Thank you

    I am using Firfox that might have some bearing on the matter.

    I'll try it in Chrome, not my favorite though !!

    Thanks for replying back. JotForm works best using Chrome browser so I guess it would be the same for JotForm apps. Please do let us know if you still encounter problems concerning the Submission View App while using the Chrome browser. Thank you
