Inline Image Upload for BBPress


This plugin enables the TinyMCE WYSIWYG editor for BBPress forum topics and replies and adds a button to the editor’s “Insert/edit image” dialog that allows forum users to upload images from their computer and insert them inline into their posts.

A pro version with the following additional features is also available:

  • Change the directory where uploaded images are stored.
  • Limit which user roles are permitted to upload images.
  • Limit the number of uploaded images allowed per post.
  • Automatically downsize images to fit specified maximum dimensions.
  • Convert all uploaded images to the same image format, if desired.
  • Set PNG and JPEG compression levels so images take up less disk space.
  • Allow users to view enlarged images in a lightbox by clicking on them within the post.
  • View total image count and file size statistics.
  • Use Amazon S3™ to store and serve uploaded images in submitted forum posts (optional; requires add-on plugin purchase).

Does not works for mobile devices. Works only on desktop or laptop devices. It's their way so that you can buy their pro version. If you can spend money then only download this else it's of no use.
