Linking to images on other sites
« on: June 16, 2010, 01:23:09 pm »

I have an aviation site and a lot of my members would upload images to a few of the big aviation photo sites, jetphotos and Ainerliners.net etc. So to make it easier for them I was hoping that it would be possible that they could link to these through Coppermine. Instead of browing for a file to upload they would enter the url of the photo. Is there a plugin available that would do this?

Many thanks in advance

Michael

No, such a plugin doesn't exist as far as I'm aware and we're not fond of this form of "hotlinking" (which is the equivalent of bandwidth theft imo) that you have in mind.

I appreciate that but the two sites I mentioned seem to allow it - they do provide links for embedding images into other forums and sites.

That's fine by me - go ahead and create a mod or plugin then that will do what you want it to do.

Unfortunately I don't have the skills to do that :(

You could use the Remote videos plugin as basis.

Many thanks for that. I'll take a look at it over the weekend.
