Support » Plugin: LH Add Media From Url » It nearly works

  • It does not work when the URL contains spaces. Luckily I can change the URL so I can workaround the issue, but it would be much better if it worked out of the box with any valid URL. Five stars if you fix it.

    It 100% works, urls can’t have spaces.

    All blank spaces must be encoded, this can be done in several ways.

    If one of the encoding schemes doesn’t work let me know in support and I’ll address it.



    Some web browsers support automatic conversion of spaces in URLs to %20, but it’s by no means standard.

    Yes that is a browser but this plugin is not a browser, a url by definition cannot contain spaces.

    @shawfactor: this plugin IS a browser. It is a minimal one, running on the server and all the rest, but it still downloads a file from a URL like all other browsers do.

    You’re correct when you say URLs do not contain spaces and I’m not pretending this is a bug in your plugin. However, if it worked with spaces and converted them to %20, like most browsers do, that could be a handy feature, at least in my use case.
