Image's URL doesn't work on my website


(Jiaqi Li) #1

Hi there,

I notice a problem on my website.

In the past, I used to use images from pixabay.com on my website by directly using the URL of the image, but today all the images disappear and I was informed that “No Hotlink”.

I checked pixabay.com and it says “If you want to show Pixabay images on your website, please upload them to your server. Pixabay image URLs don’t work on external sites.”

Does any one of you know how can I let the URLs work on my website? I don’t want to upload that one by one.

Thank you :slight_smile:

I’d say you’re going to have to upload them one by one, or script it. Clearly pixabay doesn’t want you using their bandwidth for your site, which is fair enough. This really isn’t a Discourse problem, though.

Is the download remote images to local site setting enabled? It might help you by downloading the images linked in your posts.
