The Convert Image All add-on will convert hot linked images to attachments.
(hot linked image)
This add-on is designed to convert all existing hot linked images contained in all posts. It should also be used every few months to verify there are no hot linked images on your forum.
- Images resized using ImageMagick for highest quality
- Images resized to maximum width and height settings in Admin Control Panel (Options -> Attachments)
- Setting for temporary image directory
- Requires ImageMagick to be installed on your server
- Requires exec() and chmod execution
This add-on requires a restricted Maximum Attachment Image Dimensions setting. You cannot use 0 or blank as an option. I use the 1600 x 1600 on my forum.
Admin CP -> Home -> Options -> Attachments
- Download convertimageall_v3.8.zip and unzip it.
