Support » Plugin: PDF Thumbnails » Amazon S3

  • Resolved redfez


    A query which is likely outside the scope of what the plugin is built to handle, but I have a situation where I have 5000+ PDF files, some very large, on Amazon and I am looking to find a way to integrate them to my website.

    I have been using WP FileBase Pro but it is causing my server to crash and the developer is not easy to get hold of. So I am looking for alternatives. I have found a couple that will work with S3 and connect to the buckets etc but I have to leave the files on S3 – its over 6Gb of data, too big for the hosting Im on.

    Anyway I was wondering if there is way to get your plugin to handle the files on S3 or somehow tie in with another document manager plugin to achieve what IM after?

    Any ideas greatly appreciated.

    At the moment, this plugin simply hooks onto WordPress when an attachment is saved and generate a thumbnail if the mediatype is ‘application/pdf’. The core functionality is provided by a call to Imagick, where the PDF is read using readimage().

    I don’t have any experience with S3 or WP FileBase Pro, but it may be possible with some integration. It really depends on what you want to achieve. If you give me a more detailed use case, I can try to give you a better answer.

    Thanks stianlik I’ll take a closer look at how the file manager plugin I want to use is structured. I think it should be possible as long as I can identify when the save attachment call is made, and see if there is a way to hook to that. Thanks again, I’ll post back when I have a clearer picture.
