Automatically host images

Recommended Posts



I am migrating old BBcode from a forum over 14 years old and I realize that over time a large number of images hosted outside the site are no longer available.


Is it possible to avoid this problem, to have an option in an IPB which ensures that external images are automatically copied and hosted on our own server?

It should not work then, it is activated "permanently" on our forum and yet they are not stored locally.


For example, I post this image:



And when I right click on it and open the image in a new tab, the url posted by the member is displayed.


What we would like is for this image to be automatically uploaded to our server and the link replaced by an internal link.


P.S: Sorry for my English, I go by google translate
