Would it be possible to use Dropbox as storage for galleries?
« on: January 19, 2024, 10:37:00 am »
Hi,

it would be nice having an external storage solution for dropbox.
Would this be possible? I have something similar for wordpress available.
(see https://www.wpcloudplugins.com/wp-content/plugins/out-of-the-box/_documentation/index.html)

I am pretty sure that such a Gallery Pro solution would be perfect for lot of other customers as well :)

Cheers,
Alexander

I haven't worked with the dropbox api so not sure. I have used amazon s3 which is an option in Downloads pro for storage.

The issue with gallery though you have to generate thumbanils/different sizes, so has to have a local copy of at least the large image in order to do just gets messy.

Most of our images are between 2 and 8 MB in size. It would not be a problem to save the thumbnails locally, unlike the images themselves :)
