Upgrade the WordPress Media Manager and add support for Flickr, Instagram, 500px, Facebook etc.
Right on target. Easy to install, easy to use. Base app connects to Flickr, Instagram, 500px and Dribbble out of the box. Premium extension apps are super - they add access to other cloud storage services such as dropbox. Once connected, access to those servers happens through the "new page" or "new post" window. The "installer" extensions enhances the value: with it, you can move files into your blog, which means you can duplicate files, storing one on DropBox and the other in your blog. All this for FREE! With a $5 extension, you get much more value. Thanks for a great app.
I use it to link my flickr images to my blog post. I have found it extremely simple and quick to use and works perfectly.
The developer also responds to questions quickly.
I used the update for 1.4 and it does not work with any of the paid extensions.
"OauthUtil Class fatal error" occurs
I reverted back to 1.3 and it works fine again.
Other than that it is a great plugin.
A few things that should be changed.
Flickr- allow you to login for viewing private images instead of just picking a flickr user
Dropbox - allow for a default folder so users don't have to navigate through all their folders each time for their images
One other feature that would be great is allowing upload to these services straight from the plugin similar to cloudinary wordpress plugin
Pretty cool plugin though. Only one I've found that lets you use dropbox, flickr, etc as just an extension to the crappy media library.
Hoping next version has to connecting facebook and greatest is google search
This plugin most simple and convenient of all.
Nice plugin that does just what it advertises. Some great future improvements might be to allow the selection of multiple photos at once to insert into a page, and/or the ability to add them to a theme's default gallery feature. I could only manage to insert images into the page, which bypasses my theme's gallery feature. I second the suggestion above to import external images.
If you could combine this plugin with "Import External Images", then it would be 5 star perfect.
Works like a charm, does what it says on the tin. Super easy to set up and get going and then while writing a post I can snag an image from whatever other service I already use.
As said above, the icing on the cake would be to also save a copy of the image locally (even a checkbox setting in case someone needs to watch uploads space) so that way if the service or AWS goes down, there is a still a copy of the image.
