In my discourse forum, there are lots of media links to external sources. I’m worried they would be broken in future. Is there a way to pull all those media and change the url to an internal link?

If you’re talking about images, that’s the default behavior. They are automatically diagnosed) downloaded and resized for various purposes.

For other media like video, I don’t know if there is a solution.

The only time I’ve ever wished this was possible (and I still do!) is for PDF documents.

Video however… wow… you’re gonna need some serious storage on your instance :blush:


I think that’ll need to be a custom plugin. I’m not sure how hard it’ll be.
