Title: External images saved local
Post by Manfred on 24.08.14 at 18:26:01

From now on, I will periodically (~ once per month) scan all forum posts for external linked pictures. If found, I download them locally to and change the links of the posts. I do this because image hoster very often delete the images after a while. And posts with pictures where the pictures are not shown are often useless.
Don't worry, I don't do it manually. I wrote a PHP script for that :-)

Eine Bitte: Wenn ihr auf Bilder auf externen Webseiten verlinkt, verwendet bitte immer zusätzlich zum Link entweder ein echtes Attachment (dann das Bild vorher auf euren Rechner laden) oder das "img"-Tag (siehe unten das Beispiel). Wenn die externe Seite mehrere Bilder hat, einfach das schönste Bild aussuchen. Bilder mit "img"-Tag kopiere ich regelmäßig auf Viele Bilder im Internet sind nach nur wenigen Wochen einfach weg. Dann ist der Beitrag hier nur halb so interessant...
