Hi,

I'm strongly considering purchasing your product but I need it to do something specific, even if it takes a minor hack to do.

I am trying to create a VBulletin-integrated system in which a user can upload multiple photos to a single page, each with a caption. This is in order to allow them to post "step by step" how to articles with an image displayed for each step.

So essentially I need to know if your system will allow me to post several images in one "article" or "thread". I need to make everything as user-friendly as possible, so a single UI page for the uploads and captions is also required.

Thanks.

It sounds more like an article management system that you have in mind - PhotoPost doesn't have multiple images on a per page basis and while ReviewPost does, it may or may not be the look you are going for.

This is a link to our demo site with a sample ReviewPost section. Take a look and see if it is close to what you need or suits your needs.

I've checked out ReviewPost too, and am strongly considering purchasing both it and PhotoPost.

But in the meantime I need a system that will allow my VBulletin users a single interface to post pictures with captions in order to produce something that looks roughly like this (which is just a static html page):

I know it can be done, I'm just not sure if anyone has a system with which it would be easy to do. I'm running VBPortal and Vbulletin right now.

Thanks for your help.

Any answer on that, or is it that it just can't be done?

The only way I know of is to allow for longer photo description Titles so that more commentary can be shown when viewing thumbnail sequence.
Thumbnail sequences can be uploaded into a general category, Members Gallery category or to distinct albums.

I don't think PhotoPost is going to do what you want looking at that example and assuming that's the look you want.

Another thing you can do is use the IMG tag and show a series of pics in the description box below show photo, showing a group of pics with commentary as in your example.
