Any idea how to do this? (3 posts)

    If an image on my blog goes viral on social media, many people will view it on its own in their browser while I pay CDN bills.

    Instead, what I'd like is for WordPress or nginx to recognize that a user only wants to see a specific non-theme image (i.e. a direct url to an image in /images/), and instead of serving the image directly, it would dynamically serve a template featuring the image.

    This way, I at least have a chance of retaining some of those image-wanting visitors on my blog.

    Is there a plugin that does this, or do I need some htaccess rewrite magic?

    Thanks for any help


  2. .htaccess would be that one.

    Thanks. Any idea to what WordPress url I would need to redirect it?

    Would I need to create a custom WordPress template?
