I would like to use photopost (in conjunction with vB) to allow the members of my forum to upload pictures of their products.
For example, if I'm running a candle makers forum, and all my forum members have their own online stores selling custom made candles, I'd like them to be able to upload a picture each of their candles and have each candle photo be able to be linked to their website page that is selling that candle.
They would specify the URL of the page selling the candle (it would be different for each candle) when they upload the image.
That way, when a customer interested in candles comes across the gallery, they can see the candle they click and either click on the picture or a "buy this candle now" link and be taken to the candle merchants website to complete the purchase.
So for example, if this was an example page:
The picture of the computer would be linked to that user's online store selling that computer case. The description area would be a product description, keywords would still be used, and about where the "Download Image" link is, is where a "buy this item" link would go.
Would I be able to do this with photopost 5, right out of the box, or would it need some custom modifications?
I know you can add extra fields, but in past versions of photopost, if I typed a URL in the custom field, it wouldn't be hyperlinked automatically.
Basically I would need a variable like $storeURL that would create a hyperlink whenever called. Then I could add it to make the product picture hyperlinked, I could make the picture title hyperlinked, and I could add a hyperlink in the description area if needed, all using the same "tag".
Sorry for the long post, but I was envisioning how it would work as I was typing
Is this possible out of the box (or with minor modifications to the code)?
