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 (available separately): This add-on plugin enables your forum images to be stored in and served from Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3)™.
