I am new here.  I manage the web site and photo archive of a car club and to cut costs I am migrating all our photos from a paid for system to an instance of Piwigo hosted on our ISP's servers.

One feature I need is the ability for users (its anonymous on our current site) to upload photos themselves to a shared area which I monitor and move genuine ones to designated folders.   Many of our users are retired and not too computer savvy.  A drag and drop interface is about as technical as some of them can manage it seems - no chance I could ask them to use an ftp client or similar.

So, any suggestions please on how to achieve this here ?   I assume as a minimum I need to make a single generic account and pass the details around the members or can it be done anonymously.

I saw a plugin called 'Community' and wondered if that was suitable?


Piwigo 13.4.0
Operating system: Linux
PHP: 7.4.33
MySQL: 5.5.5-10.5.18-MariaDB-cll-lve
Graphics Library: ImageMagick 6.9.10-68

Yes, the Community plugin will let user accounts upload photos. You could create accounts and pass credentials on, otherwise you'd have to open up user account registration.
