Hi to all I would like to have a simple plugin, hook, anything that Automatically caches external images. Simple explanation: Actually I'm using this plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/cache-images/ But with this I have to click on scan, then choose which images I would like to save then wait and so on... I'm in need of something more automatic. Is there anyone who can teach/tell me how to do it? Thank you!

If you look at the Cache Images plugin's thumbnails page on the WordPress plugin directory it looks like this feature already exists within the plugin. In the admin section of your site go to Settings→Media there should be an option to cache images when posts are saved.

What a blind man I am :-) Thank you very much! I think I would never see it if you didn't tell me! – maisdesign Mar 15 '12 at 8:28
