View Full Version : Grab images from url
June 21st, 2004, 12:25 PM
Can someone explain me what does this mean and where is it?
I know that is a mod posted in photopostdev but as long as "grab" and "url" are no searchables by the forum engine I canīt not find the posts to see the description of the feature :)

Well Iīll change my question. How does this work?

This is a feature of Photopost 4.8. What it does is this. It allows you to grab images off say a page. It parses and uploads images that are encased in an img src tag in the page and handles them all like a bulkupload process.

Iīm trying to make a test with a lot of pages and it donīt grab any images...
This is supposed to work with a page like this?

If you provide a URL to a page, it will strip out the IMG SRC tags and try to "grab" the images from the pages. There are a couple limitations:
a) Doesn't fetch images which use a relative URL,
b) Doesn't fetch images which are linked to, only SRC'd in the page.

Ok thanks Omegatron and Michael.
If you solve this limitations in the future, this will be the best thinhg since internet was created xD

PhotoPost is not a "web stripper" product and its unlikely we'd ever build spidering into it.

Hey it wasnīt me who wrote this mod:p
I think that like all things in life everything is relative, I think that this mod as feature is absolutely perfect, then you can choose what to do with it, you can use it right or you can use it "wrong" but I donīt think that such a great feature should die because someone could think that this is a way to steal otherīs websites.

Actually, the "mod" is aprt of the 4.8 release and is no longer a "mod" (unless you want to add it to 4.7).

Yes I know, I think that I donīt have understand what you were saying with your first reply, anyway it doenīt matter, is difficult to me express what I want exactly to say and undestand exactly what you want me to say.
I like the mod or whaterver you want to calll it :)

What Michael is stating is the mod itself simply looks for http://www.domain.com/someimage.jpg in an image src tag and uploads that to your photopost. This is no real hard thing to do.
It does not look for relative images as if it did we would have to write a whole complex thing to do that. This would make it more a less a web stripper
