    (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.

    The Convert Image add-on will convert hot linked images immediately after a message is saved.
    Key Features:
    • 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
    XenForo Control Panel Requirements:

    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.

    Question and Answers:

    Q: Some hot linked image are not converted, why is this?
    A: If a hot linked image is corrupt and internal information about width and height are not able to be read, these images are not converted and will require manual fixing.

    Q: Why isn't GD supported?
    A: GD does a terrible job of creating large images.

    Q: Can files in the /tmp/ directory be deleted?
    A: Yes, they are not required.
