Image proxy - use external URL?
« on: February 05, 2019, 11:30:46 AM »
Do you guys still have plans on allowing us to specify an external URL to use for proxying images?

It was discussed here and thought it was merged into 2.1 already : https://github.com/SimpleMachines/SMF2.1/pull/4565

I don't see the option on the forum :

Have to say, I'm not yet familiar with all the decisions regarding this - but I do believe 2.1 includes hooks to support external proxies, and there's a mod that takes advantage of this already available https://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=4175
