Archive Remote Images

Archive Remote Images allows you to scan a post to fetch remote images; then updates its content automatically.


  • Lot of new options in the settings page.
  • Localization.
  • Also handles the link wrapped around an image, if the link target is pointing to the image file.
  • Refactoring of the settings page (uses now WordPress functions).
  • Saves image title if a "title" or "alt" attribute is set on the remote image
  • Fixed bug with revisions
  • Avoid uploading several times the same image (checking its source, which is saved as "_ari-url" post meta)
  • Whole image tag replacement, not only source url replacement. Can be filtered with hook 'ari_get_new_image_html'.
  • Changed regex stuff with DOM parser (more reliable)
  • Replaced SQL queries with WP core functions
  • Wrapped plugin into a class


  • Update: The read me content
  • Bug fix : Fix the default value and auto save option
