Inline Image Upload for BBPress


This plugin enables the TinyMCE WYSIWYG editor for BBPress forum topics and replies and adds a button to the editor’s “Insert/edit image” dialog that allows forum users to upload images from their computer and insert them inline into their posts.

A pro version with the following additional features is also available:

  • Change the directory where uploaded images are stored.
  • Limit which user roles are permitted to upload images.
  • Limit the number of uploaded images allowed per post.
  • Automatically downsize images to fit specified maximum dimensions.
  • Convert all uploaded images to the same image format, if desired.
  • Set PNG and JPEG compression levels so images take up less disk space.
  • Allow users to view enlarged images in a lightbox by clicking on them within the post.
  • View total image count and file size statistics.
  • Use Amazon S3โ„ข to store and serve uploaded images in submitted forum posts (optional; requires add-on plugin purchase).

  • The Image toolbar icon in the TinyMCE editor for forum topics and replies.
  • The Browse button in the Image dialog, which allows the user to select and upload an image from their computer for inline insertion into their forum topic or reply.

Be advised this company will hang on to your money even if you email them as soon as your subscription renews. We decided not to use bbPress and thus did not have a need for their plugin. We forgot to cancel the subscription, received no notice of the upcoming renewal, and despite emailing them as soon as the renewal went through, they refused to issue a refund. Most honest businesses I know would extend this courtesy, but not Aspen Grove. Worse, instead of giving an honest answer as to why (even "we choose not to make any exceptions" would have been acceptable), they gave a B.S. line about it being due to the digital nature of their product. Let's be serious - no money apart from a credit card fee was spent by Aspen Grove because my subscription renewed, and I would have happily taken a partial refund if this was a concern. I have no idea how well their plugin works, but I can tell how their customer service works!

This is a useful tool to upload images. However, all images go into bbpress database and I would not find them in the main image gallery in WP. It would be nice if we have them accessible in the main image gallery and control the image upload limits (I got to know that this has to be set up somewhere in WP PHP file for upload limit).

Its really easy and does the job for the Wordpress admin to allow image upload. And the image upload in the bbpress form is easy and familiar, if you're a Wordpress admin. But if you're a regular user just trying to comment on a bbpress forum, its not at all user friendly. My user base simply haven't worked it out how to upload an image, i don't know how i can fix this.

Very happy with adding the upload image button to tiny MCE. At first I had an issue with the add image button not showing on a mobile phone but rotating the phone to horizontal view was a temporary fix. The real fix was changing to a more bbpress compatible template though.. Well done. ๐Ÿ™‚
