I need a simple upload form for visitors to my website, for uploading files to box.com (or dropbox.com) The visitor enters name, email address, browse for files, and uploads. box.com (or dropbox.com) merely serves as a secure temporary storage, the files will not be shared.
I am not a programmer, so I need a template to work from. I use Dreamweaver CS6.
Anyone has a template?
I don’t know how to answer your question, as I said I am not a programmer.
I need the functionality for my Dreamweaver site, googled, found out that some WordPress plug-ins have the functionality, and ask for the functionality in this Dreamweaver forum.
What I meant was Box.com doesn't support direct uploads to their storage from webforms, unless otherwise you use their API - which is a piece of linkage code you have to get from their site in order to integrate your site to theirs, thereby being able to view/ download/ upload files to your account with them.
Take a look at this link: http://developers.blog.box.com/2011/09/28/using-the-box-api-with-javas cript/
It explains how you can use Box.com API to be able to achieve what you want to achieve. It's pretty simple - but you need to have a fair bit of understanding of some code. Use the URL I've posted above and I'm sure it'll help you.
I got the impression that the OP just wants a point-and-click solution that works without any coding.
Don't think it's mandatory that it's a DW extension but I guess the OP can decide for him/herself.

Yes, I see that in #4 and a DW extension is one option, of course. But I don't know of any specifically for this application.
I just didn't restrict the possible solutions to only DW Extensions.
There are others such as Jotform.
I am grateful to both of you. I tried jotform.com and it works, hooray! I can put a form on a page of my Dreamweaver site, a visitor can upload a file, and the file appears in my dropbox.com folder.
That’s not the end of it, though. The file gets routed via a third party that jotform.com is, and I would prefer to have the file go directly to dropbox.com
In other words, I would prefer a ‘Dreamweaver plug-in’ that has yet to be developed.
But for now I do have a workable solution, albeit not a perfect one, and once again, I am grateful to both of you!
