Is there a Media Embed extension for images?

Post by JungleJack »

Hi all,

I love the phpBB Media Embed extension, but was hoping it would work for url's pasted with .jpg/gif/bmp/png etc as well. I know those are images and not media, but still :)

Now im wondering if there is such an extension so that users can just paste

and it automaticly converts it to an in-post image.

Thanks!

Converts plain-text image URLs into actual images. Only URLs starting with http:// or https:// and
ending with .gif, .jpeg, .jpg, .png, .svg, .svgz, or .webp are converted.

This extension will actually parse images form imgur and several others. https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... ediaembed/

I have installed and enabled the AutoImage, pasted this url:

But it is still just a link. Anything I might have forgotten to do?

You're using eles style and I haven't found a 3.2.8 compatible version.
Try on prosilver.
BTW MediaEmbed should do this automatically.
We should embrace problems, without which there wouldn't be any solutions.

Tried it with ProSilver, but still the same. MediaEmbed unfortunally does not do the trick. Maybe it is because of 3.2.8. Could be. I will hit the support forum 3Di mentioned.

It is not a question of style, is done via PHP.
Then I strongly doubt that we've wasted time writing an extension that already exists. :)

Oops, Sorry, I missed the image extension part.
phpBB MediaEmbed works with imgur identifiers:

Code: Select all

Nothing. It is merely a question of priorities in the library we use.
The author (JoshyPHP) is aware of this and will be fixed in the core code.
