Squarespace Websites Uploader
Adding plugin on site
So first of all you need to add our plugin to page. The best option is Header Injection (if you want to use script globally on site) or Page Header Code Injection (if you want to use it on specific pages). Let's add the script globally:
Our plugin uses Simple-Ajax-Uploader, to overlap default Squarespace Forms text-fields, so show your love his author.
Now we need to create usual Squarespace Form and add text field which will become our upload button. We need to use custom parameters in this field:
Description Section parameters, ";" delimiter
add FileField parameter to enable this field as File upload field - required;
set MaxSize of file in KB, otherwise default value is 1024KB(1MB). The max file size we support at the time is 10MB per file;
add Multiple parameter for multiple files uploading;
set addText parameter to change button text, use underscore for spaces ex. addText=Add_your_Files;
set UploadUrl parameter to use your own server (ex. UploadUrl=http://my-own-server.com;) or add nothing to use our own service.
Placeholder Section parameters, "," delimiter
- set the list of allowed extensions here to prevent users upload some files you don't need. Otherwise next list will be used: ".jpg, .jpeg, .png, .gif, .txt". Our service supports many of document, archives and graphic extensions, but you may request of some custom if you need.
So with all parameters you will get something like this:
Now refresh page and you will see the button Add Files instead of text field - you may click and choose or drag-and-drop files here.
Registering your domain
But if you gonna to use our service for uploads - you need to go on SQS Form Uploader site and register your site domain. Otherwise you will see such error when trying to upload:
Just register with email and password or use Facebook or Google account to sign up.
Once you log in, you may add Sites to your account. Name it and add at least Site Url in http://example.com format to save it. You may also add Squarespace Site Url if you want to handle uploads from Squarespace built-in domains (like https://mysite.squarespace.com) also.
Attention! You are free to change Squarespace Site Url further, unless you want to change the main Site Url - then you need to remove current site clicking red close icon and add Site with new Site Url.
Now your site added and user may upload files. You will get Squarespace Form Submission email as usual, but now you will have the unique urls of uploaded files. Note, that these urls are secure and only you will be able to download files while you are logined on site.
You may also see uploads in Admin Uploads tab on SQS Form Uploader site:
If you want, you may use your own Google Drive to store all uploads. First you need to click Connect GDrive button and allow SQS Form Uploader-app offline access. After you may see Connect GDrive button on each of your sites. Clicking this your site will be connected and gdrive icons appear.
While your site is connected to Google Drive, user uploads will be stored to SQS Form Uploader/your-site-address/ folder. And you will get direct Google Drive links to files now.
