I'm beginning to just look into how this extension works etc......what about photobucket links that are in peoples signatures?
Does it get those images and download them etc?
Or is it purely just inline in the actual posts?
That is a good question.
The extract_external_links script for identifying external links and adding them to the new database tables (currently) only looks at the body of posts, so images that only appear in sigs or avatars, or added by extensions are not added to the database and thus not downloaded.
The extension that redirects links to the local copy actually looks at all output fields, and thus does (if the image has been downloaded) redirect correctly images in sigs, avatars, etc.
I don't currently plan to rework extract-external-links to add the extra functionality.
