[nodebb-plugin-expiring-uploads] Hide and expire users uploads

  • GNU/Linux

    (Hopefully) As requested by @chrismccoy
    Thanks for the idea!😋


    Hide and expire users uploads.

    The name actually only tells half the story. This plugin lets you:

    1. Hide uploads of definable filetypes behind a hash/timestamp/filename combination. Uploads are not stored in the standard path (public/uploads). This ensures, that even when the filename is known, it's pretty hard to guess its location.

    2. Set an expiration time(range) for those hash/timestamp/filename urls. Every setting > 0 will have uploads handled by this plugin expire.

    PLEASE NOTE: Expiration is calculated at request time. If you uploaded a file 7 days ago and now decide to lower the expiration time from 10 to 5 days, this file will be treated as expired.


    1. npm install nodebb-plugin-expiring-uploads

    2. Activate the plugin in the ACP.

    3. Adjust the settings! Standard expiration time is 0 = uploads never expire.
