    Hi, great post there.

    I like to ask a question. I would like my readers to upload image to my website but with moderation. When you say “upload images from their own local machine”, does the own local machine only refers to computers or can it be mobile devices like iphone as well?

    Do you have recommendation for plugins that allow mobile phones readers to upload images to my site? Thank you in advance!

    Kind regards,

  • I’m going to try this plugins at localhost first. Thank’f for this tutorial, very very helpful 🙂
