Template for Upload Form

Nov 21, 2012 6:42 PM

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?

    All sounds okay, but the bit where you want to upload the files onto box.com. Are you planning to integrate their API to get this done?

    Peter,

     

    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.

    Does something like JotForm together with DropBox achieve what you want?

    John, I thought of that but the OP specifically wants a 'Dreamweaver plug-in' as he says he's not a developer.

    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, he has mentioned in #4.

     

    Nevertheless, I hope he finds jotform useful and is able to achieve what he wants to.

     

    I guess he's the best judge here!

    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.
