Import Linked Images

It's frustrating to go back to a blog post and see that its images no longer exist because whatever site was hosting them is now gone. This plugin automatically downloads any external image sources and replaces them with the new local copies.

Other plugin

There is another plugin on the repository that does this, called Add Linked Images To Gallery. Unfortunately it's no longer maintained and has some very messy code. This is a first pass and cleaning up and simplifying that idea.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
