Support » Plugin: External Media » Works well

  • This plugin (at least import from Google Drive) works with current WordPress. I haven’t tested the other imports.

    While every(?) other Google Drive plugin embeds media saving space and making backups complicated, this plugin does not embed. It physically imports the media storing it on the WordPress site. This comes with one drawback, lost space, and with one huge bonus, easy backups. A full WP backup (DB+local files) is enough. One does not need to backup Google Drive files and keep track of used/embedded media there.

    This is especially beneficial if the photographer(s) and editor(s) are not the same person. Many people can contribute to a pool of media on Google Drive, from which editors import what they need. And WordPress backups and media backups remain independent and no links get broken.

    ps. Someone told about an empty white window and inoperable plugin. Well, I experienced the same problem at first (maybe I did something wrong while creating a project?) but then I deleted my project and created a new one and now this plugin works. Check the one star review for a description + solution by someone else. A white screen and nothing happening is not the end of the world. It apparently can be fixed 🙂
