Import External Images
Mod Version: 1.0.5, by y2ksw (Coder) y2ksw is offline
Developer Last Online: Feb 2021 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (38 votes - 4.68 average) Installs: 301
Released: 07 Nov 2010 Last Update: 14 Feb 2011 Downloads: 1912
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.

I mean they do import the image and store it and rename it.
I am not sure if it uses the same mod or any other, or tweaked something in it.

So you think there is any other solution or workaround ?

If an external site refuses hotlinking, for example, it not will be possible to import the images in most cases.

The asset manager is an enhanced interface for uploading files. It allows users to reuse their existing attachments with ease. Some older browsers may have problems using the interface. Users may also choose to disable the asset manager from within their profiles.
I disabled this and it works now.

That way when I find a thread that I really need to be sure I have copies of I just click and it gets copied.
Is this suggestion implemented? I think it is very interesting and useful,

Thanks,

You may invert the search order and thus backup the newest threads first. However, this has some backdraws on large boards, such as much slower queries from MySQL.

I don't understand this, because the idea is only to import external images in one thread, not in the newest ones,... For example in the threadID=2345 (In all posts in that thread. ) or in one post postID=234567 (For example if you want to promote to article that post/thread,...).

Any ideas?

Thanks!!!!

I don't know. Maybe your hosting does not allow external URL's to get imported.

How can you tell if this is the case, because this mod worked prefect for us. But know it does nothing.
