This is growing and becoming a stylish front end. v0.3.0:
@henrywright that is why I host images on my server. The other reason is that I can put the images through some software to make them smaller in kilobytes.
@prog I use Digital Ocean and storage seems to be 20GB on the plan I have. For 40GB I'd need to quadruple what I currently pay per month. I'd love to host images direct on my server but I can't afford it
@prog also I think Imgur has a setting which allows images to be reduced in file size on upload which speeds up loading times
@henrywright How many images do you host? 20 GB would be enough for some years for a small forum.
@prog currently 3 images in total. 1 of which is my site logo. I take your point hehe
I'm surprised DO doesn't have a feature to pay for more disk space separate from upgrading to the next tier. It's a little crazy actually.
I'm pretty sure if you pay for the next tier. Your storage doesn't change. Thought it was just ram. Guess I've never really looked. A CDN is definitely a better option than self hosting. Keeps the requests to your VPS down.
Would be great if images went through compressor.io before being uploaded to imgur. Wouldn't be so good with high quality images. Guesa you could just do it with the jpgs. Since they're already compressed.

Not in every case. I have an overpowered server with a SSD and my visitors are from smaller country, which keeps the user-server distance small. I also have more control over the images, but imgur is really good and I would take if I hadn't such a server.

That is a very good idea, I like tinypng.com though
Using it, works great, the only problem is, i can't upload GIF files. Is this only me, or are more people having this problem?
Hi guys i follow the instruction to installed the plug in but when i tried to up load I get, How did you guys overcome this? or did I miss any steps?
@linan2332 Did you follow the steps in the plugins setup page in ACP?
Yes, i follow the steps in https://github.com/barisusakli/nodebb-plugin-imgur
register a new user, authorize the application with secret and client id. Everything proceed with no error
@linan2332 after you entered the client id and secret in the plugin ACP page and clicked enter..... it takes you to imgur website to authorize... after you authorize it... did it return back to the same ACP plugin page?
@pichalite Yes it did, and then I tried to upload an image and show the above error. I also tried to restart nodebb but is still the same
@linan2332 well then I have no idea what else to do... works fine for me in two separate installations.
I dig into the logs and find the following error, does this help..?

Anyone know why this error happens? When I try and upload a gif it will produce this error. Though i'm able to upload the gif directly if I upload via Imgur. Also happens when I try and upload a pic from my phone.
@torn2 you need to increase the file size limit in your nginx config file.
@baris Thanks for the help. That fixed it!
Published 1.0.16 with a fix for token refreshing. If you are on 1.0.15 you should update.
