Option not to pull hotlinked images in PM topics


(Anton) #1

One of the possible means to reduce storage consumed by uploads is to not pull hotlinked images in private messages.

Is such a configuration option possible?

This seems like a strange half-way measure. Why not just disable all downloading of images while you’re at it?

Because image downloading exists for a purpose. The public part of the forum should contain the images and not depend on 3rd party websites. In the same time, loss of images in the private area would affect the forum much less. No?

Maybe a plugin stuff. It is easily doable with few lines of code.
