Should be pretty easy to build a backup system. Imgur is just a handy plugin to send images there. Every site that uses a CDN has this problem, potentially. A plugin to upload the images locally or to S3 should be very easy. Very few people want to use locally hosted images, though. But for those that do, the option would be good. Then blocking would be uniform.
I need to replace a SMF forum with a gallery built in. If I get an Imgur Pro account could I allow image posts through the forum? Any plugins to allow browsing of the images?
@BitBass Our imgur plugin right now offers basic imgur support. Images are uploaded anonymously (I believe).
Can you expand on these two points?
- allow image posts through the forum?
- Any plugins to allow browsing of the images?
Well, I'm not sold on imgur, but I currently have an SMF forum with an embedded gallery function that I would need replace in some way. I need my users to be able to upload pics somewhere to be able to embed in the forum, but it would also be nice to be able to browse through the uploaded pics. Is there another way to accomplish this with NodeBB?
