EWWW Image Optimizer
[resolved] compatibility with plugin 'User submitted posts' (12 posts)

    I am using Ewww Image Optimizer plugin, which automatically compresses the images as I upload them.
    I am wondering if this is an issue with other plugins like User submitted posts.

    Currently, when User upload images of 1 MB or even lower. Their image does not reach me. User sees no error. However smaller files like 100 kb and slightly above do come through. I will also check with the other plugin support.
    Is there a max image size that can be sent through this processing?

    Nope, no maximum image size. Can you give me a link to the plugin you are using, so I can take a look at it myself?

    I did some testing, and didn't have any trouble. I even tried some larger PNG images to see if there were any issues with timeouts due to longer processing time and they uploaded just fine.

    I did notice that the User Submitted Posts plugin has some default restrictions that could very well block images around the 1 MB area (or larger obviously). You might want to check your settings on that.

    Thank you! Currently, I deactivate the eww image optimizer plugin whenever I am not posting.
    Now the Larger images are coming through. I Activate when I am posting.
    Is this okay?
    I did check the setting for 'user submitted posts' plugin, and size is not restricted.
    I am just wondering if its ok to activate and reacitivate upon need at the moment.

    That should be fine to activate and deactivate the plugin at will. However, I'm still puzzled as to what the issue is, as I've been totally unable to replicate it.

    Do you have any of the conversion options enabled?

    What is the max width and height that you have set for 'user submitted posts'?

    Lastly, do you have an image that you know is causing issues?

    also wanted to ask if you were using the 'cloud' service, or just using the bundled/built-in optimizers?

    Hi. Sorry I was not able to reply earlier. I had 4-5 images sent in my guests that didnt come through directlyy using the plugin. they sent them to my email instead.
    For example: 1 image was sent from ipad . It is 1.3 MB in size.

    However as I stated, when I turned off the plugin they were able to send large images.

    Under Conversion Options the only box checked is

    enable GIF to PNG conversion : is that checked by default. i dont remember if I checked this.

    MAX image height and width is set to 4000 pixels each.
    You may close this topic as resolved as I will work around it like this. Currently the plugin is on again. If I recieve a post again without and image I will probably turn it off at that time and ask user to submit again.

    I would appreciate if youd let me know if there is any update.
    Hope I have answered your questions
    as for your questions
    also wanted to ask if you were using the 'cloud' service, or just using the bundled/built-in optimizers?

    I am not sure.
    I use wp super cache, jetpack and varoious other selected plugins.
    THANK YOU for the plugin

    Can you provide a link to the 1.3 MB image so I can test it on my dev box?
    The GIF to PNG is not enabled by default, but is generally a good idea.

    I really do want to resolve this issue properly, just having trouble replicating the issue on my dev box.

    I was hoping to try and replicate the issue with one of the images you were having trouble with, but I guess I'll just have to close it...

    One thing I did discover is that the plugin does attempt to optimize the user submitted photos in 1.6.x, but fails due to the fact that the plugin generally expects to run in the admin. I've still been unable to get the plugin to actually block an image upload, but this discovery could potentially be the root cause.

    With the upcoming 1.7.0 this has changed, since the inclusion of the wp_image_editor extensions allows all sorts of front-end interaction. Give it another run after 1.7.0 is released and let me know if you have further problems.
