Changing the location of where images are stored?

  • allmyhoney


    Hi there, I am hoping someone can help. I have a buddypress website setup and I have the messaging addon working between members of the site. What I have noticed is that the images between 2 private members, if they share images between themselves are stored in the defauly media library which of course is not ideal from a privacy standpoint if all the images that are sent in private chats are appearing in the default media library area of WordPress.

    So I was wondering if there was a way for buddypress to store these images elsewhere other than the defauly media library of WordPress?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    You must be using some plugin for sending media files. Images typically below 2mb in size can be easily converted into encoded strings and stored in the message itself.
    So this is something you’ll need to handle in custom code, but it is possible.
