Shopp Image Tools

Quickly convert all of your database-stored Shopp product images to regular disk files - provides faster performance within many hosting environments

Important! This plugin is not currently maintained and will not receive any further bugfixes. If you are a Shopp-minded developer and are interesting in taking over the reins, though, please feel free to contact me or simply fork the code/start afresh/whatever you prefer (and apply to the good people at wordpress.org for a new repo here in the plugin directory if that is fastest) :-)

  • No limit on the number of images you can convert
  • Optionally remove the old images from the database after migration

Shopp Image Tools is a utility plugin for users of the Shopp e-commerce plugin. By default, Shopp is configured so that product images are stored in the database, this means additional database use every time one of these images is fetched.

While this mode can be turned off there is no built-in mechanism to pull the images back out of the database and store them as regular files - that is what this plugin is designed to help with. It now also includes tools to clean-up the database that you can optionally enable.


This plugin was written by Barry Hughes, a Vancouver Island based cloud-head and core Shopp developer.
