I am using a wordpress plugin called "Add Linked Images To Gallery" in order to save a local copy of images posted on my site. I uploaded all my files in a different hosting and I was testing this plugin in localhost to see if it does the job .
What does this plugin do :
The plugin searches for external images posted in the site , save a local copy and replace the old image address in HTML code with the new image address which is in the local.
What is the problem :
While testing the plugin in the local host , I noticed that this plugin does not correctly save images which have "white spaces" on their file names. For example :
This is an Image.png
will not display in the blog, instead this is the correct way to show it :
as you can see , the white spaces are replaced with "%2520" , I am not sure why this is happening, but the image wont show up in the blog.
I tried to modify this plugin so it automatically replaces the white space in the image file with "_" , I look at the source code and found this line:
$content = preg_replace('/(<img[^>]* src=[\'"]?)('.$trans.')/', '$1'.$imgpath, $content);
which I believe is responsible for the replacing images, but when I modified it , it removed the post content and image.
Is it possible to modify this plugin, so it replace the white space in the file name first , then save a local copy, then use that local copy in the blog ?
