BMI Wrong Image Link Fix

If you're images change to strange URLs like 1.1.1.1/bmi/ this plugin will help

The company ByteMobile came up with a great idea: Deliver compressed images instantly! So, if your Provider ( e.g. Vodafone ) cooperates with ByteMobile, they will most likely deliver compressed pictures on your mobile screen. How this works:

You call a webpage and this webpage contains images. Your provider now rewrites these SRC-Attributes to http://1.1.1.1/bmi/url and there a compressed picture is waiting for you.

I don't want to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of this method, but for WordPress Admins and Editors, who are using Mobil to edit blogposts, this can be a huge problem.

By this method, your Image-URLs can be overwritten, so you dont save but

In the end, the picture won't show up at all. BMI Wrong Image Link Fix helps now with this problem. It hooks into the 'save_post' and 'edit_post'-methods and rewrites the wrong Image URLs to the correct one.

At the moment the following wrong URLs are known, and this plugin can correct them:

  • 1.1.1.1/bmi/
  • 1.1.1.2/bmi/
  • 1.1.1.3/bmi/
  • 1.1.1.4/bmi/
  • 1.1.1.5/bmi/
  • 1.2.3.4/bmi/
  • 1.2.3.9/bmi/
  • 1.2.3.10/bmi/
  • 1.2.3.11/bmi/

If you are fighting with another URL, pleaes contact me, so we can update the code.
