Plugin for images on different server
« on: July 24, 2014, 03:48:41 pm »

I am interested in a plugin that allows you to store the images on a different server. In my case it would be enough just to specify another url (on a different domain) for the albums directory. But I am sure others would like to store images on a cdn.
I can chip in say 50 $ for a plugin made public. Maybe someone else can contribute aswell?

Thanks, that might work. But the

It is safe to use and should do exactly what you want. What Andre really is saying here is that given time a more evolved solution could be made probably with a better back end allowing you to select and configure various CDNs etc.

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

Please consider my quote in its context. It was a reply to
I decided to delete the /albums content from the main server so as to rely solely on the content delivery server. The problem I experienced is that after relying on the content-delivery-only server, coppermine wouldn't load a picture and instead all I could see is the nopic file (trash can) for every single file of the gallery, although the plugin was enabled and the files were accessible at the content delivery server.

The plugin as-is works as expected if you want to deliver the pictures from a different server, which has an exact copy of your albums directory.
