I’m having no luck with S3 or Imgur either. Both seem so tantalizingly close. I’m not competent to fix the code, but at least I can point out the current state of affairs. This applies to 0.9.2
It seems like the format has changed for AWS resources. I created a bucket, and the only option for region is “US Standard”. On the setup page, I entered the keys, and figured out that the region had to be set to “us-east-1”. With that, I can upload successfully, but the image URL is incorrect, the image appears broken. Discourse creates code like this:
<img src="//BUCKETNAME.s3-us-east-1.amazonaws.com/IMAGEFILENAME.png" width="690" height="690">
I can manually edit the URL to fix the image. It needs to look like this:
<img src="//s3.amazonaws.com/BUCKETNAME/IMAGEFILENAME.png" width="690" height="690">
Imgur uploads fail with an error “Sorry, but we couldn’t determine the size of the image. Maybe your image is corrupted?” … @benbeltran seems to have found a fix for this, but I haven’t been able to replicate it. More details here:
Local image storage
This works fine, but I gather from @colin above that this approach doesn’t survive (re?)deployment. I’m not exactly sure what that means… Is there a problem preserving local images through an upgrade cycle? Are there any issues with starting off using local storage, then switching later when Imgur/S3 get sorted out?
