I am building a site for a charity. Amongst other things, the site lists a number of upcoming events. I have created a custom content type for these events (with fields like title, body, date, location). I want users to be able to upload photographs taken at these events, and am not sure what is the best way to do it.

I was going to create a new content type called something like Event Photographs, and by using a module like Entity Reference I could require the users to select an event.

But our users will probably have many photographs to upload for each event.

Is it possible for my users to follow a single add node / create content flow but upload many photographs at once to create many nodes?

An alternative is to have a single node, with multiple fields, but then I lose the benefits of each photo being its own node (e.g. commenting).

Bulk File Nodes is the solution for you to upload many files/pictures and create a node of it. Rest depends on your Logic how you implement it.

  • Unfortunately I could not get Bulk File Nodes to work on simplytest.me, and I got the same result locally. The Create New pop/layer is empty. Commented Nov 19, 2013 at 20:43
