vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (38 votes - 4.68 average) Installs: 302

Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Additional Files Translations  

This vBulletin 4 product imports external images in your posts from external servers or paths into a specific path, normally your forum's image folder.

Differently than the previous product Image Cache for vBulletin 3.x., it parses the posts at regular intervals for new images and replaces the external references in the background. Also, instead of using only a single folder, it creates folders for years and months, making it much easier to handle large quantities of images. The source and destination image URL's are stored into database, too, avoiding unnecessary duplicates.

It moves and optionally converts images from one place to another. It is a handy tool in order to keep your images local to your forums.

Version 1.0.4 is temporarily in BETA stage until the users have confirmed the newly requested features.
Version 1.0.5 is still in BETA stage. It adds a new bunch of additional features, one of which allows you to test your mathematical understanding ... and a few other to fine-tune CURL and socket timeouts, and resizing on the fly of too large images. If you don't know what these options do, please leave them at their default values.

Have you checked that fopen for URL's is enabled? Do you have CURL or sockets available? May your server pull in external sources?

If your server does not allow to connect to and read external resources, it will not be able to import any image.

Excellent mod!

I have one question: do you think it is possible to create folders for days, too?

...it creates folders for years and months...
Thanks in advance

I think this does not make much sense even for very large forums. Large forums will have a Linux Server, which has no problem at all to host tens of thousands of files in a single folder, and smaller forums with Windows servers will run into problems not before 30000 files each directory. That is about 1000 files daily, plenty to play with

Hi

Just a quick question, I have a from member that uses photobucket. And for some reason she has an extra [img] before and after her images, will this stop your hack from working?

It should not make any difference.

Is there something I could use with this mod to watermark my images? Does anyone else use something to watermark the images, and willing to share?

Thanks in advance!

@y2ksw: Can you add the postid in the table iei_img? This makes it easier to find wrong urls in the post.

One question, is it possible to retreive the images and upload to other server?

For exaple giving a FTP account, so the forum domain is:

www.forum.com

And all the images are stored in other server/domain, for example

www.forumimages.com

so you have them in your server nş2, and all the posts in FORUM (in server 1) links them as:

[IMG ]http://www.forumimages.com/image 1.jpg [/IMG ]

Thanks!

I am against watermarking images coming from other sites and thus will not implement this feature.

If you want to watermark the files, you may use quite easily a self-tailored script from SSH, or via cronjob and PHP, operating directly on the imported files.
