    Is there a way I can activate the media uploader for contributors?

    I do not want to change everyone over to "author" for these articles must be reveiwed and approved before publication, or is there a way to change the permissions on "authors" to prevent them from publishing?

    It is kid of a pain to have to have the photo's emailed in and then place them in the appropiate locatons within each article.

    Thank you

    If Contributors could upload media, they'd effectively be Authors: anything they upload is immediately on the web. Even if it's not used in a Post or Page, Google will find it. (Which surprised one of our Authors recently, who got a request to re-use an image he didn't realise he'd published.)
