[script] move photobucket images to internal hosting
« on: November 19, 2017, 01:48:52 PM »
Since my forums most precious content is actually pictures, I am paying Photobucket storage (~20k images uploaded by several users).

Now when photobucket did what I did - my forum looks like a mess.

I've upgraded to custom hosting package 50GB size and enabled forum image upload to avoid similar situations to happen' in future.

Is it possible by any chance to make a script to fetch photobucket images, upload to forum hosting and change links in posts?

EDIT:
Since it's possible to view all those images with hotlink fix chrome extension... Is script which can convert manually post by post every image to attachment doable? I can task, let's say 50 users to do that.
