Community user access to media library

    Hi team,

    We have started to branch out with community events and so far, feedback has been great. One event input that consistently creates the most problems for us is the event picture. For a nice and standardized look across the website, we really want all users to submit event pictures with all the submissions. We have tried to set them up with image files they can use, but having to select the png or jpg each time seems too cumbersome for people, so they do not consistently use it. Is there any way we can give our users access to (a certain part of) the site’s media library, so they can select standard event pictures directly from there? That would make it a lot more convenient for people and would also solve some of our concerns around possible copyright issues with user-submitted images.

    Keep up the good work!

    Hi Bernhard,

    Thanks so much for reaching out!

    Unfortunately this isn’t currently a possibility with our plugin, however you can vote on this idea in our Feature Requests, as we tend to implement ideas based on customer feedback, so your input is greatly appreciated:

    Also included in this feature request are some snippets that may help to get you started, if you’d like to explore the customization on your own.

    If this functionality is a requirement for your intended project, Iā€™d suggest that a third-party developer would be the best way to make this feature happen on a short timeline. šŸ™‚ We maintain a list of developers who work with our plugins on our Knowledgebase here:

    Let me know if you have any other questions on this topic!

    Hey there! This thread has been pretty quiet for the last three weeks, so we’re going to go ahead and close it to avoid confusion with other topics. If you’re still looking for help with this, please do open a new thread, reference this one and we’d be more than happy to continue the conversation over there.

    Thanks so much!
