Upload formatted articles/stories question





DoctorBeaver
I want my members to be able to upload their articles/stories etc to my site. I was considering a wiki but that means that other people will be able to edit them & I don't want that. I want only the author to be able to do that.

I also don't want to (maybe can't?) upload word processing docs as not everyone has the same WP packages.

It's easy enough for me to upload files and store them in a database then restrict access to them, but how can I preserve the formatting when displaying them without complex parsing?

I was thinking of using a form for the member to type directly into & then using PRE, but that is very restrictive. They wouldn't be able to include diagrams etc plus having to write a complete article in a browser form is a pain in the butt.

Another option would be for them to upload an HTML page, but not all my members could make 1.

Does anyone have any ideas how I can do it?

I think you're requirement matches with blogging software

where you can add multiple contributors.. and assign priveleges for each of them.. so that.. one wont edit others page...
