BMI Wrong Image Link Fix

Description

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.
