I’m already using several wpForo add-on plugins and I love the idea for this plugin, but I have a concern about the file sizes. Is it possible to have the files get stored in Amazon S3?

I currently use “S3 Media Maestro” from “Fly Plugins” to store media for blog posts in Amazon S3 and it works great.

The developers plan to create an integration addon which will link all wpForo recourses with Amazon S3. We’ll let you know once the integration adon is created.

It need to say that the wpForo – Voice Posting doesn’t crate big files, so you can consiger using it untill the addon is ready.
