    Hey everyone!
    So basically i've created a funny picture site where users upload photos and comment on them. The problem is they can only upload photos from their PC, I was wondering if there is any way that I allow them to upload from their mobiles. (Upload > Iphone library > Chose )

    How can I go about this? Plugin? PHP Code?

    All help is apperciated! :)

    We had this problem w one of our dating sites. Cant upload photos from iPhone unless its through an app (can't access photo library through web browser). BS, but it is what it is

    Kaplam, do the pictures need to go live immediately, or do they need to be sent to the backend? I only ask because I know some form applications allow users to upload files via smartphone, however the file would be sent to an email address and you'd have to manually upload them to the site afterwards.
