I am thinking about buying a membership,
but I first would like to know if the Proz site creator allows an upload option for the contact form, along with customizable fields.
I am asking that because looking at many of the sites listed here http://www.proz.com/?sp=web_create/index&sp_mode=sites I saw no contact forms allowing a potential costumer uploading his/her file for a better evaluated quote.
Moreover, the majority of the sites listed are very poorly realized, some are even unaccessible!
So my question is: are users unable to create a website, or is just the proz editor that doesn't allow many fundamental features and cause too many problems as I can see from the dedicated forum?

Thank you

The ability to upload files has not been disabled Aug 3, 2010

Dear Francesca,

Please note that the ability to upload files has not been disabled; however, support has not been added to the site creator system. Site creator was developed to provide members with a rapid path towards a web presence, similar to a brochure. For many users, that fulfills their needs. For others, a more robust solution is needed.

A site owner using a ProZ.com Hosted Site has the option to create their own website from the ground up, using static HTML or dynamic PHP. Many users utilize third-party frameworks, such as WordPress or Joomla, which allows them to customize a series of templates and modules to deliver the functionality that they need.

In short, any member is free to install a third-party framework that is more robust if they feel that the basic offerings do not best fit their needs.

I hope this explains. Please let me know if you have any doubts.

Best regards,
Alejandro
