Support » Plugin: Content Cards » Downloading ALL images from links!

    Hello,

    Is it normal that I get ALL images in my /uploads/ folder from a link I create a content cards in a page?

    I mean the content card has only a featured image displaying, why do I need to get all images from target link at my own server?

    Thanks.

    What do you mean by ALL images? Content Cards import only the image that is provided via OpenGraph tag.
    Do you mean that different sizes of the image are generated? If so, that is the way WordPress media library works – whenever image is uploaded, all size version of the image are generated automatically.

    Yes, that’s right, as already posted under the other discussion here:
    https://wordpress.org/support/topic/cache-settings-creating-massive-image-duplicates/
    I later discovered that your plugin was endlessly re-downloading the same image featured image, with tons of copies of itself, and with all WP thumbnail versions, at each visit of the page hosting those links.

    I initially thought those were images for target links but in fact they were the same images generated in infinite loop on my server, creating tons of unwanted images as stated in this review:

    I just uninstalled this plugin and everything is fine now, thanks.

    Yes, I’ve read both the issue and the review. And you still haven’t provided any details that would help us to reproduce, identify, debug and fix the issue in neither of your numerous posts on this support forum.
