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.

oh well, i guessed

did you check the permissions? during upload maybe something has changed. if Apache can't access the import folders, nothing happens.

well simply said, the flders you are using for importing the images must have read/write permissions for the web server (chmod 755 or 777 depending on the server settings) and must be owned by the web process. If you haven't changed these settings during the upgrade process, it should work. However if it isn't you will have to ask somebody to look into it more closely.

if the server settings have changed, it can be caused by a missing CURL module and/or different fopen settings. Or even by a reduction of memory or script timeouts.

Hi Giovanni,

I've installed this on a copy of a large forum with many posts (to test before going live). I would like to only run this on posts one year old or newer since I have been using your 3.x version of this software and have all of my other images cached. Is there a way to set the date where this starts to work? I don't need it or want it to modify posts from 2010 - 2002.

thanks so much!
Kether

You may set (via phpmyadmin) the iei_parsed flag to 1, for all posts you would like to skip.

No. But you could add your own at server side with image recoding I guess.

I use watermark, its easy just create .htcacces on the folder u save the pics and copy/paste:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^([^tn].*\.(gif|jpg|png))$ /imported_images/watermark.php?image=$1&watermark=watermark.png [NC]

But with this option I had a lot of complaints of my forum users, because they dont like watermark their images

I would like to know how to watermark with exceptions such image size, or file size,

Best Regards
