This plugin fetches images on the list of URLs, save them into the blog media directory, and attaches to the appointed post.
Use it instead of tiresome saving images from the internet and uploading them to your blog.
- Unzip the plugin archive and upload the ‘remote-images-grabber’ folder to the plugins directory, usually ‘wp-content/plugins’ (or use the native wordpress plugin installation interface).
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress, then ‘Images Grabber’ link appears in the Mediafiles submenu.
- On the ‘Images Grabber’ page, specify the post ID where images should be attached (if such post doesn’t exist, images stay unattached), a list of images you wish to grab, one link by line, and push ‘Go!’ button. That’s all!
(I recommend to use [gallery] or other gallery shortcode in those appointed post, then grabbed images will appear in the post automatically).
- more changes in recognizing image URLs (thanks to Thomas who reported a bug)
- base URL field value is kept in cookies now and filled in automatically until you change it or close your browser.
- now grabber works from a tab in the upload box and attaches grabbed files autamatically to the post you are editing;
- lower file size limit added (ignoring icons etc.);
- base URL for grabbing images from relative paths;
Version 0.2. Now can grab images by links on a given web page.
Version 0.1. It’s simple but it works.
