I had to switch away from WP Smush.it due to the restrictions in filesize and found this plugin – so far I am very impressed!!
For my use-case though, this isn't working out of the box and I'd like (you) to evaluate the support for bbPress, more specifically the "GD bbPress Attachments"-plugin.
WHAT'S THE PROBLEM
I am using the "GD bbPress Toolbox" (http://www.dev4press.com/plugins/gd-bbpress-toolbox) which incorporates the functionalities of GD bbPress attachments (http://wordpress.org/plugins/gd-bbpress-attachments). This allows users to upload content to the WP media library from within their posts/topics.
Unfortunately, the images are not processed/optimized by EWWW Image Optimizer.
The plugin status indicates, that all necessary criteria are met.
I went ahead and checked if all is running smoothly with a standard WordPress article and yes, all is good there – see the comparison (bbPress upload & WordPress article upload) here:
The user-uploads are (also) stored within the regular WP media library (/uploads/...).
I read up upon the current events in http://wordpress.org/support/topic/feature-request-add-custom-directories and haven't tested the 'dev'-version just yet because I wanted to get some advice first:
- Do I need the dev-version / will it likely support bbpress-uploads?
- Would the desired functionality require you to enhance EWWW Image Optimizer accordingly or rather the plugin developer over at Dev4Press to include a hook of some sort to support EWWW Image Optimizer?
I'll manage communication with Dev4Press (if needed) & support the development / debugging-process as best as I can.
Thanks so much for your efforts and I am looking forward to your statement.
