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.

Where do I do this? I can't find iei_parsed

The product stopped working automatically for me today but when I run the cron job manually it works just fine.

It does work. I've used it for years without issues.

Well, until now.

Thanks for the feedback, but still in my case it is not working!!

I guess there is something wrong here. it is either the version I'm using (v1.0.5) or a misconfiguration !!

If your server cannot access external servers or if external servers do not allow downloading images, they remain as is. Also, it may take some time to catch up.

Is there only one hook? All I see is: Add and set iei_parsed field accordingly for eventual image parsing

I don't understand why when I click the cron manually it works but it just won't run automatically while all other crons work.

It's very weird.

In fact. But it may be the product is disabled or it is scheduled in a way it never runs often enough.

The iei_parsed field is found in the post table and if it is 1 or more, it won't parse that post again.

Check that table and it said 1 so i set it to 0 on the posts it showed.

It still isn't working and I can't figure out what to do

Not working anymore

I have had this mod installed on my one forum for years and it worked great.
Then I moved to a new server and upgraded to 4.2.2 VB
The new server has PHP 5.4 which i am thinking is the problem.

Before i discovered it wasn't working I installed this on another forum on the same brand new server, also running 4.2.2. On this forum it created a 2 folders and then stopped.
I cannot figure out what is stopping it, it seems it can't write files or something.

So i looked on my other forum and it stopped running the same day I moved it to my new server.
So there is either a problem with 4.2.2 or php 5.4
Cannot find any reason that neither will work and this is mainly the differences.

Even if I run it manually it doesn't work.

What would it explain it running manually but not automatically?

Installed on 4.0x, I'm using it on 4.22pl1; php 5.3.2-1 and MySQL 5.1.63 and runs fine.

What I would ask is a version that works on blogs and their comments, too.
