Helping WordPress websites offer a visually striking component to their bbPress forums, the Image Upload for bbPress Pro WordPress Plugin allows forum users to include inline images into their discussions on bbPress forums.
With the Image Upload for bbPress Pro WordPress plugin activated, site visitors can insert images into their topics and replies on bbPress forums using an easy-to-use drag and drop image uploader. Images can be automatically resized to save storage space and bandwidth and enlarged when clicked with a built-in lightbox.

While in the forum post editor, the site visitor can simply tap a button on the screen to bring up the Upload Image box, where tapping the screen a second time will bring up the smartphone operating system’s image selection options.

Storage Options for Image Upload for BBPress Pro
As of version 2.1, Image Upload for BBPress Pro includes support for storage engines which allow you to store your forum’s images in local or remote locations. When first uploaded, images are stored on a temporary directory on your server, and when the user saves his or her post, the images are moved to the location determined by the storage engine. We provide the following image storage options to accommodate the needs of forums of different sizes:

  • Filesystem Storage (included): This storage engine is the default and comes with the Image Upload for BBPress Pro plugin. Images are stored in a user-defined directory on the server.
  • S3 Image Storage for bbPress add-on plugin enables your forum images to be stored in and served from Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3)™.
