Too much images on FTP

    Hello again, thank you for great plugin,

    i have little idea now,

    this is screenshot from my FTP – it is ONE image, total 13 files of ONE image: https://pasteboard.co/JBfzOWQ.png

    It would like to create fewer files. For example, now the original size of the photo is 153 kB, it’s a total of 637 kB + it takes up a lot of inodes on the hosting. As you can see in the screenshot.

    This is how WordPress works unfortunately, it resizes images to all registered image sizes (HivePress only registers a few, others are registered by WordPress itself and third-party plugins). You can consider using some CDN service instead of keeping media files locally.

    Yet there is no option to link images stored online elsewhere, just the uploader from the local computer. Moreover, you have an “embed” option for videos/images in attributes and it would be logical to integrate it into the listings Gallery to either upload or link images/videos to a listing.

    Thanks, I’ll consider adding this feature. Relying on external image URLs may not be a good idea, if users add links to non-reliable sites you can end up with a site full of broken images.

    That depends. Hosting your own images and videos takes space. Lots of space! You can’t compete with youtube any times soon! Most of the listings life span is too short to care about broken image links, Anyway, if I had an option of either uploading or linking images it would be “upload” for for directory, “link” for temporary ad listing.

    YouTube is a reliable source, WordPress has an official list of supported embeds https://wordpress.org/support/article/embeds/ Allowing third-party image URLs may also be a security issue, e.g. if an image is replaced with some inappropriate one on a third-party server (to avoid moderation).
    I recommend using some storage service like Amazon S3 (if you have thousands of images/videos to host), it’s a dedicated storage service that will not slow down the site itself and will load content via a CDN.

    @ihor Is it possible to make hivepress upload only your photos for listing and not create other versions for wordpress?

    @inzerat Where did I say something off topic? If you want privacy – write to the developers e-mail.

    The developer suggested that you don’t upload images via wordpress and host them somewhere else… I said that right now it is impossible to do via gallery… you can do it only using “oEmbed” option in attributes and suggested that it would be nice to integrate it into the gallery so we can link not only images, but videos also – that would solve your problem of too much space taken by too many images that get uploaded via normal WP routine… if you find that amusing or off topic, than try to RE read what I wrote.

    @inzerat It’s not possible, I recommend using some CDN service if you have at least thousands of images https://kinsta.com/blog/wordpress-cdn/
