Import External Images

vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (38 votes - 4.68 average) Installs: 301
Released: 07 Nov 2010 Last Update: 14 Feb 2011 Downloads: 1909
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.

Dear friends:

This extension is amazing, I use it since months, and all works very well. The only problem is that, I'm using a vps with limited resources (apache, 512Mb ram). I've noticed that one of the slowest sql in my vps is the following:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

As you can see, my posts table has only 278721 rows. I think this is a small forum, I suppose that there will be bigger forums out there. But you can see too, that the query time is very high (16sg). I have discarded another problem (very much visits, and so on).

Is there a way to increase the perfomance of this query?

Best regards and thanks in advance.

Not that I can think of. A server should really ahve more than 512 MB of RAM, specially when using a database server, too. You may try to add some MB to the MySQL key buffer, but I doubt it will help.

I don't know. This product imports only external images which can be read by the server, using CURL or fopen. If it doesn't work for you, I'm sorry, but there is nothing I can do about.

If it does nothing (please check with FTP in your imported folder), you system does not allow to pull in external data.

Can you make this work for signatures, or at least some curl script to just display signature images so I can keep SSL on my site?

It works for images of any kind on any site which will allow hotlinking. It does not influence or depend on SSL, but it may not work for you, if the server isn't allowing to pull in external data.

Hello y2ksw

I'm thinking about installing this and have a question.

Some of my users are using these pay per view image sites, and they're linking images on my forum. I would like to know if your plugin will -
Delete the link attached to these images?

You see they post the images, but when you click on the image they redirect you to some spammy website which really bugs me. Can your plugin remove this link also?

I understand I will host the image, but when I'm hosting the image, will I now be hardlinking my images to their websites?

Thanks for your time and workmanship!

It's possible that this product imports images on the blogs? It works beautifully on our site.

I'm sorry, this product is thought of hosting images only. But you could pretty easily replace the offending links with a query from phpMyAdmin, such as:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

The 'localhost' entry makes sure nobody ever will go anywhere but the own PC, but of course this may also not be desired (then, replace with a host of your choice). You will also have to truncate the postparsed table after such changes, and, as always, make a backup before testing

Nope, only forum posts are currently supported.
