Plugin Review – Inline Image Upload for TinyMCE
Version Tested: V 1.1.15
Inline Image Upload for bbPress is a forum plugin that adds a visual editor tab to forum topics and replies, with the ability for the insert image button to also allow image upload.
Installation is simply a case of installing and activating the plugin. Although it adds a Dashboard>>Images>>Image Upload page there are no settings to change; this page simply informs you how the plugin works.
Once installed the plugin adds the visual tab to bbPress.
Clicking on the insert image button reveals that it also has an image upload option (the folder to the right off the URL field.
This is a simple and effective plugin for bbPress that enhances your forums and adds both the visual editor and an image upload function, it works very well and I give this plugin 10 out of 10. There is a pro version of the plugin that allows a great many options to be changed though I’m not sure most sites would need those.

Cut-throat Customer Service
Be advised this company will hang on to your money even if you email them as soon as your subscription renews. We decided not to use bbPress and thus did not have a need for their plugin. We forgot to cancel the subscription, received no notice of the upcoming renewal, and despite emailing them as [...]soon as the renewal went through, they refused to issue a refund. Most honest businesses I know would extend this courtesy, but not Aspen Grove. Worse, instead of giving an honest answer as to why (even "we choose not to make any exceptions" would have been acceptable), they gave a B.S. line about
it being due to the digital nature of their product. Let's be serious - no money apart from a credit card fee was spent by Aspen Grove because my subscription renewed, and I would have happily taken a partial refund if this was a concern. I have no idea how well their plugin works, but I can tell
how their customer service works! Read more »

This is a useful tool to upload images. However, all images go into bbpress database and I would not find them in the main image gallery in WP. It would be nice if we have them accessible in the main image gallery and control the image upload limits (I got to know that this has to be set up [...]somewhere in WP PHP file for upload limit).

Uploads images ✅ User friendly 🤔
Its really easy and does the job for the Wordpress admin to allow image upload. And the image upload in the bbpress form is easy and familiar, if you're a Wordpress admin. But if you're a regular user just trying to comment on a bbpress forum, its not at all user friendly. My user base simply [...]haven't worked it out how to upload an image, i don't know how i can fix this. Read more »

Works well on both desktop and mobile
Very happy with adding the upload image button to tiny MCE.
At first I had an issue with the add image button not showing on a mobile phone but rotating the phone to horizontal view was a temporary fix. The real fix was changing to a more bbpress compatible template though..
Well done. 🙂

Bad for mobile devices
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.

I've been setting up and managing BuddyPress social networks for a few years. I moved from Ning and other platforms and have come to BuddyPress looking to make sites with similar features to them.

Plugin Review – BuddyPress Members Only
BuddyPress Members Only is a BuddyPress plugin that will redirect any attempt to access your sites pages from none logged in users to the register page thus enforcing a completely private network.
Hi, I just installed your plug-in and activated it, but the “insert image” icon doesn’t show up in the Visual tab of creating a forum post. I also have the GD bbPress Toolbox Pro plug-in installed and I’m wondering if there may be a conflict there…
Thanks for getting in touch. It’s not my plugin, I only reviewed it. Yes there’s a good chance that there’s a plugin conflict I would have said so you should try deactivating your other plugins in order to find where the conflict is, then you can report the issue to the respective plugin creators via their forums.
Hope you get it sorted soon!
Is it possible for the admin to limit the size of the uploaed image?
Thanks in advance!
It’s not my plugin so can’t say, you should ask the plugin creator.
