Hey, you’re getting married?! – Awesome! And you’re even creating your own wedding homepage to share your story?
One thing that will make your page alive is pictures. If those are pictures of you –celebrating, dancing, laughing – they will surely catch the interest of many friends and family members. Of course your photographer will take pictures beyond the reach of us ordinary people. But sometimes the most touching or funny moments are captured by uncle Roger, your nice or a good childhood friend. But how to get all these photos from everyone?
Let us help you with an easy to integrate file upload service from your own page right into your personal cloud storage. Receive and share pictures and videos from all your wedding guests and your site will be filled with memories every visitor will love.
Photo upload right into your personal cloud storage
Using a pre-generated code snippet or the WordPress plugin, you’ll get a flexible upload service for your own website. Dragging and dropping (or selecting) files into the upload section of your page will submit them directly into a folder of your own cloud storage. No matter if it is Dropbox, Google Drive, Box.com or Amazon S3 – use any of your personal cloud services to receive all your wedding pictures in there.
Besides the upload area you can also show a gallery of already uploaded photos. So you have one place on your page to receive uploads from guests and show available wedding photos and videos in a gallery.
The technical basics
With every CloudWok upload link there comes an easy to use plugin (How to get your started with CloudWok). Just go to https://www.cloudwok.com/developers and configure the widget the way you like it most (visible components, colors, texts). The HTML code or WordPress Plugin code is generated right away for you. Copy the pre-generated code snipped into your webpage or WordPress Blog and you can receive uploads from any visitor right in your personal cloud.
We compiled some useful information on our developers site (developers.cloudwok.com) including a 3-minute guide on how to get it up and running.
