I’m thinking of using this plug-in but wondered if the digital download pictures one sells can be stored on the Amazon S3 server or not.November 27, 2013 at 10:20 pm #59259
Amazon S3 storage is on our ‘TODO’ list as far as future features go, but currently it is not available.November 28, 2013 at 1:58 am #59260soon2bexpatMember
Thank youOctober 9, 2014 at 12:52 am #59261
When will this feature be available? Is it currently being worked on? My servers disk space will not hold all of my photos and having them stored on Amazon S3 is must have for me.October 12, 2014 at 12:15 am #59262
This could possibly be done with some sort of plugins like those listed below, not sure how this would work with the emailing links to download though?
What say ye experts?October 12, 2014 at 3:57 pm #59263wzpModerator
It would most likely be done by borrowing the same code that we currently use in eStore. I’m pretty sure it is on the “todo list.”October 12, 2014 at 8:18 pm #59264
This question was asked 10 months ago, how long is the ‘todo list’ and when will we see some progress on this?October 13, 2014 at 1:10 am #59265
It’s actually quite a complex task which is why we have been putting it off until we properly think through the architecture and implementation.
There is so much more required than simply storing photos on S3 because the photo seller also needs to process each photo in a certain manner in order for it to be able to correctly display the galleries, albums etc.
Your patience would be appreciated whilst we work through this.October 13, 2014 at 7:12 pm #59266
I’m sure it is complex, I believe you. Was just wanting to know if this is being worked on, I’ll pray for more patience.November 26, 2014 at 3:48 am #59267
Any progress on this? In the works? Getting close? Not going to happen. Any info will help, I’m stuck on my site until I find a solution for storage of thousands of FULL size images.November 26, 2014 at 2:03 pm #59268wzpModerator
The to-do list for Photo Seller still has other items on it that may have a higher priority. If you want a particular feature, at this point, you always have the option of requesting a custom work order quote, and one of our developers will get back to you:December 4, 2014 at 7:43 pm #59269
Thanks but no thanks, this is NOT a custom work order quote. You guys seem to change your opinion on this from one minute to the next. Or depending on who answers I get a different reply every time. Your estore plugin apparently does this, why can’t this be implemented into this one? You advertise wp photo seller as for photographers, yet storage is a MAJOR issue if your a photographer selling prints. 1 of my images files could be 20 MB, and I have THOUSANDS of them I’d like to upload. As is I’ve bought both your estore plugin and wp photo seller and I’m still back to square one…Nothing…as it currently sits neither really works for my needs. How is this feature request NOT a priority? What trumps it? Anyway clearly I’m wasting my time on this subject.December 4, 2014 at 10:54 pm #59270
The issue is the complexity of the implementation. When we first received the request from people regarding the addition of Amazon S3 we didn’t realise it would be such a problem.
The reason for the complexity is in the way the photo seller plugin works – which is totally different to eStore. Basically the photo seller is designed such that each photo uploaded to a gallery is also a wordpress “post” object of type “attachment”. Due to this, all the smarts built into the plugin rely on it being able to retrieve and manipulate the wordpress attachment (image) objects and related post_meta data.
The problem with shifting all images offboard to S3 means that most of the current functionality will be affected due to the fact that access to the local wordpress attachment (image) object will not be possible since it will be located externally.
We are still brainstorming and we hope that we will come up with something.December 8, 2014 at 12:25 am #59271
Understood, much more helpful than the previous one. I appreciate it. Hopefully you guys can figure something out.March 10, 2015 at 5:38 pm #59272
Any headway made with brainstorming this at all?
