Hi, I would like to know if this plugin is fully compatible with the WP Offload S3 plugin, in order to manage a media library stored in the S3 cloud.

Thanks in advance,

Hi,

Thanks for contacting us here about this extension.
From what I've seen in this plugin description it should work.
If not, drop us a billing ticket we'll refund you.

Hi, Thanks for your answer! Looking at one of your videos (https://vimeo.com/112322214), in minute 2:35, does that means that an existing hierarchical structure in the server will be preserved? The files will be maintained in their actual locations AND taxonomy folders created? Or the files will just be imported into the main upload folder (i.e. /myFiles) and the original folder will be preserved as a taxonomy folder?

Sorry for re-asking, but I prefer to better explain my needs, because looking at your other add-ons (Google Drive, DropBox) I think I would be able to handle everything with your WP Media Folder plugin. This is my scenario and requirements:

1. I've several sites using some GB of files (images, pdf, zip files) distributed in several custom created folders via FTP and few items added "normally" into their respective WP media gallery. The files and images "outside" the media gallery was used in posts contents manually, adding the full path (i.e. http://domainname.com/myFiles/MyFolder/OtherOne/filename.jpg";, etc.).
2. I need to preserve (due to customer's requirement) their custom folders hierarchy.
3. I need, due to restrictions of space in my new hosting provider, to move the actual files outside the ISP to a cloud service (AWS was my first thougth, that's why I've asked about the AWS Offload S3 support but it doesn't honor the existing hierarchy into S3, flattening everything into a single folder. So I can use Google Drive, DropBox, etc. if the previous point's folder structure can be maintained). I've no problems to re-upload the original existing data to GDrive if needed.
4. There is no problem to manually update (or searching and replacing) each file reference (if needed) into the existing posts and pages to the "new file location" if needed, is a one time operation and we're not talking about thousands of posts.
5. The final objective is to have only the WP instalation and the minumum required files into the ISP and the total of the media gallery out of it.
6. I don't need to solve all of this "this morning" but I prefer to take a little time to dig into this in order to have a definitive solution for this sites and futures ones.

Any recommendation will be appreciated and if I can do everything with a single vendor solution like you, it would be perfect. If you prefer to continue this conversation via email or Skype in order to simplify the communications, just let me know.

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

Maybe this reply will be anough. You're right, if you use importer, the files will just be imported into the main upload folder (i.e. /myFiles) and the original folder will be preserved as a taxonomy folder only (not physical folders).

Thanks @tristan! Don't know if you've seen my last (longer) msg, do you think what I'm asking there can be done with your plugin and addons?

Hi,

OK, just see it now, sorry I replied faster by Email.
Yes it should be OK and solve your problems of disk space. You can upload your folders and subfolder in Drive or Dropbox (OneDrive will also come soon) then make a sync with WP File Download. Our plugin will only index files (for the search, the copy/paste...) but not store them on your server.

The only thing I'm thinking about, is maybe you'll have to be patient with the initial sync/index process if you have thousands of files. Then, let's roll :)

Cool! And the sync process involves what if nothing is copied to the ISP servers from let say GDrive? To add each file's record in the wp tables. Just to triple check, the folders in GDrive can be used as taxonomy folders? They will be part of the media URL (i.e. http://gdrivepath/myFiles/myFolder/etc/filename.jpg";)?
