Problem detected on post ID - external Images (2 posts)

    I'm seeing a bunch of errors like this

    Problem detected on post ID: 3135 on file: /var/www/appbite.com//images/SilentNight/iPhone.jpg

    When I dig into Post 3135, I find there is no such image, it's actually an external link to
    http://www.blackbunnygames.net/images/SilentNight/iPhone.jpg

    So it feels like Special Recent Posts doesn't support external images, which is fine, all sorts of issues pulling external images.
    Is there a way to skip external images ? I can't spot an option for this.

    Then I hit problem #2, the filtering doesn't seem to work.
    I've tried to filter out all the postings that produce errors with this command, but I still get the same errors, even after clearing the cache.
    'post_exclude' => 2622,3135,2543,2668,3299,

    I have also tried 'display_thumbnail' => 'no', just to get it up and running but no luck there either.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    Hello.
    Yes the SRP plugin cannot handle external hosted images, due to server security reasons.
    The filtering works fine. Please remove the last comma and any whitespace among the post IDs.
