Import External Images
Mod Version: 1.0.5, by y2ksw (Coder) y2ksw is offline
Developer Last Online: Mar 2022 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (38 votes - 4.68 average) Installs: 300
Released: 07 Nov 2010 Last Update: 14 Feb 2011 Downloads: 1920
Not 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.

Is there any chance that this mod can be ported to VB5x, it's absolutely invaluable on my site!
The only way I could attempt to do this job for vB5, is to write a PHP or system/Bash or Python script for Linux, since vB5 has removed most of the features and hooks vB4 had. It requires you to have access to the system, of course.

Is there anybody else interested in such a solution?

@y2ksw I was messing around with this trying to get it to work on vb3, I managed to find an old copy off the vb3 version that does still work, but this one has more features. After reading EVERY page, it seems BOP has had no issues running this on vb3 as is, yet all my attempts have been unsuccessful.

Is this strictly for linux based environments, Or using WAMP (windows) would modifying the paths be sufficient enough to get this operating?

It should actually work everywhere and PHP should translate the paths accordingly. If your web server is located on the C: drive, then a path starting with / should refer to C:\ automatically. In addition, paths in Windows are not case sensitive. The only issue I have had with windows web servers, were the read and write permissions, but adding the Everybody user with Modify rights fixed it.

Thanks for the quick response, Ill play with it a little more on my environment and see if I can trace exactly whats going on. I'll post back with an update once I figure something out.
