Hi,

I'm not sure where to post this so I'll put it here for now. Here's is what I need to be able to do:

I need to allow my members who are logged into their backoffice (already have login working fine) to be able to upload a photo and create a story, etc about themselves, and then have both updated into a database table (already got that) and then have a custom page created dynamically out of their photo and story.

1.) What Webassist components do I use to have them upload a photo to the website?

2.) What Webassist components do I use to allow them to type in a story about themselves online. Maybe have text editing capabilities etc.

3.) How do I store both the photo and the story in a database (field types) and then read them back out again and have them properly displayed on their own custom page?

Are there Webassist modules that would make all of this easier?

Thank you!

Don't store the image in the database. Store the path to the image and metadata including your "story" in the database. Storing the image in the db slows your response and doesn't really solve any problem.

Ok great, I have both Digital File Pro and iRite. I've got the user registration and database parts written already so I'm set there.

A follow up question...

If the file being uploaded is an audio or video file, what audio and/or video player should I use on the member page to play it back? So, is there something built into one of the WebAssist modules to help with the playback?

Thank you very much!

Webassist does not provide a video player. You could use any of the available players to get it working, but no webassist tools will be directly applicable in that process.
