    Upload images and approve them to display on my website

    Asked by lawren  on September 02, 2015 at 10:33 PM


    I am looking for an app to add to my magazine site hosted by SQUARESPACE that would allow visitors to

    upload text & images - without giving them access to my "back of house". to approve them and then if i click yes (or whatever) it would be seen by everyone ideally could be liked or commented on

    Can you do that ?

    Thank you!!!!

    I understand that you want to allow your users to upload an image and add some text so that they can be displayed after you approve them. It is possible to add text and upload images by using a form designed with JotForm and add an approval switch using a radio button or drop down that allows to you to edit the submission from the notification email received. Please refer to the thread below that can help you in creating a form with approval workflow :


    I'm not sure how you want to display the images on your website. We can generate a report from the Reports section to display the submissions in a table. You may use Visual Report that can be having a filter to display only approved submissions. You can also check the HTML report that has an option to display the images instead of links, however it doesn't have an option to filter. If you can provide us with more information on displaying images, we'll see what best we can do.

    Thank you!!
