Latest release:

I’m happy to present you another Plugin for your WordPress Blog: The ImageShack Uploader.

ImageShack is a free easy-to-use hosting service which allows you to upload your images and share them with others. You can embed these images directly into your website and use the auto generated thumbnails.

What does this plugin do?

This plugin allows you to upload images from your WordPress post screen and to insert them with the thumbnail into your post with a few clicks.


The plugin requires WordPress (2.1 or better) and the PHP extension "curl". You can just download and try it, if curl is not installed it won’t break your blog.

Pricing and Licensing:

Good news, this plugin is free for everyone and released under the GPL.


Download Icon


Upload the plugin to your wp-content/plugins folder and activate it.

Using the plugin

On the "Write post" screen, you’ll find a new tab named "ImageShack" next to the "Upload" tab below the content text field. Click on it to switch to the ImageShack upload form. After the file was successfully uploaded, you can insert the image into your post.


Please post in the WordPress Support Forum if you need help with this plugin. It is very likely that you will get a faster response there than if you write me a mail.
