How does it work?
The Filerobot plugin will intercept your image(s) addition request and offer the Filerobot’s stored assets instead of your server’s gallery, therefore replacing the locally loaded images with Filerobot native URLs. Your origin images will be from your Filerobot storage, resized by the Filerobot infrastructure and cached by the included CDN. NO development needed.

Question 1: Why are my images not going through Filerobot?
Check if you have a Cache service like W3 Total Cache / WP Super Cache / …
In this case, you need to reload the cache to enable the transformation of your URL.
If the problem persist please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Question 2: How much does Filerobot cost?
Filerobot is a SaaS that doesn’t have a free tier. Depending on your needs, a Sales Representative can present you the best match in terms of plans and options. You can request a quote there.
Question 3: Will my original images be affected?
Filerobot downloads your images on-the-fly and modifies the links in the WordPress database to call your Filerobot container.
Your origin images are therefore kept on your WordPress server, and synchronised (uploaded) in your Filerobot container.
Moreover, you can use the integrated Filerobot Image Editor to modify your image and create additional versions (only modified in your Filerobot container).
Question 4: What happen if I deactivate Filerobot WP plugin?
Your WordPress website will be back as it was before the activation of Filerobot WP Plugin. We do not apply permanent changes to your WordPress.
However, be aware that any meda added to your pages after the activation of Filerobot will NOT be available anymore.
We strongly suggest to backup your WordPress before deactivating Filerobot.
