In this tutorial we are going to learn about how to allow visitors to upload their files on your website. Let me clear you one thing that those uploaded files will be saved in your Dropbox folder. Many times website or blog owners want to allow visitors to upload their files on their website.
The possible solution might be Email. But it becomes very difficult for website owner as well as visitor to upload and download files easily. Another way is to make a shared folder. But it will allow visitor both read and write. So here is one simple method which will embed an uploader form into your site so that there is no need of any registration or other things for the visitors. It will be very easy to upload files to your visitor. (See example form here)
So we are using a popular web form builder called Jotform.com. Using this simple web form builder you can create your customized web form without writing a single line of code.
Allow Visitors to Upload Files on your Website
Following are the steps to embed an upload file button (i.e. file uploader) form into your website.
As we are using our Dropbox account to store the uploaded files from the visitors, you should first sign in to your Dropbox account. (If you do not have account on Dropbox, create it here).
Then go to http://www.jotform.com/dropbox/ and click on “Create a Dropbox Form”
It will ask you to give API access to your Dropbox in order to deliver your files.
In this example I am going to use a blogger platform.
