User Submitted Content

Hi All,

Is there a module for user submitted content? My requirements are:

  • a user should be able to submit a file upload with some associated metadata, from a web page
  • user submissions are listed
  • user submissions can be searched
  • user submissions can be tagged
  • user submissions are listed on their profile page
  • each submission has its own page, on this page:
    • other users can comment & vote
    • other users can download the submitted file

Does this functionality already exist in the Orchard ecosystem? Or do I need to do some coding to plug this together.

One thought I did have was that the Nuget Gallery is fairly close to my requirements, apart from the difference that a nuget upload is via the nuget command line client rather than through the web app. Although I've only had a brief look at the nuget gallery source so I may be wrong about this.

The gallery does enable you to upload from either the command line or the web interface.

Thanks Bertrand.

Do you know if it would be possible/easy to separate the gallery's dependency on the nuget server? Would the best thing be to create a clean Orchard instance and pull in modules from the gallery? If so do you know which modules I'd need to pull in? Or, do you think there is another, better approach to this?

Thanks again,
