Fetch uploads to Wordpress site

Post by azzurri » Fri Nov 24, 2017 3:03 pm

Does anyone know of a way to fetch image uploads on the forum to a website, for example a wordpress based site?

Nothing like this available either free or as premium plugin?

There are no “premium plugins” here, they’re all free.

There are no ‘threads’ in phpBB, they are topics.

Ah, I see. Thank you for the response.

I could probably do this myself but it seems as if phpbb is salting the images in the files folder. Instead of .jpg files I get 2_16ff69651448fde8b4f986014994cb.

Is there any way to save attachments as normal image files instead of the jibberish files in the files folder?

It is a jpeg file, just under a different name without the ancient file extension. You should be able to use the filename from the files folder in a html-image-tag.
Or, see
Knowledge Base - Backing up attachments with their original filenames for a idea to get a copy under the original (uploader's) file name.

Thank you. It feels as I'm getting a little bit closer at least. I'm really not that skilled so I won't be able to solve this by doing any real programing so to speak. I'm using a gallery plugin on my wordpress site and it can fetch images from folders. But since phpbb is using this kind of solution it can't fetch images from the folder.
