Import External Images

vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (38 votes - 4.68 average) Installs: 294

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.

Wow. Exactly what I needed. This is perfect for people who want to rewrite external links for advertising like linkbucks. Linkbucks now skips images and lytebox will work because the images are all local.

I just hope this continues to work when I upgrade to 4.1.

I' am testing 4.1 but I'm not through yet. It should work though, unless the post table has changed (which hasn't).

Worked fine on 4.1.0 PL2, however, while the concept is good, the plugin is very lacking in control at the moment. Right now it appears to be an all or nothing kind of thing. No control over individual forums, threads or even a single post. These would be great, plus options to exclude things like signatures would help greatly.

GREAT PRODUCT.

I have been missing this feature, and Vb declined to implement it because of copy rigth shite

EXELENT, will report back when I have tested.

EDIT

BTW what happens to images already uploaded to the forum via the attachment system?
Nothing I guess ?

What about images that have a thumbnail link?
Like images on photobucket or imageshack.us ?

Will it download the largest image and thumbnail it or ?
