6.3.3.7. Images Section

This section contains settings that are used to save images and files available in the target post pages into your server.

Note

Saving images and files will increase the time and memory required to save a post.

6.3.3.7.1. Save all images in the post content?

If you want all the images in the post content to be saved as media and included in the post from your server, check this.

Important

The images will be searched for in the elements found by the CSS selectors defined in Post Content Selectors.

Note

This is the same as checking Save images as media? setting and adding img selector to Image URL Selectors setting. So, you do not need to check Save images as media? setting or add img selector to Image URL Selectors setting when you check this setting’s checkbox.

6.3.3.7.2. Save images as media?

If you want the images in the post content to be saved as media and included in the post from your server, check this.

Checking this setting’s checkbox will make Save images as gallery?, Gallery Image URL Selectors, Save images as WooCommerce product gallery?, and Image URL Selectors settings visible.

Important

The selectors you define will search for images in the code that is found by the selectors you defined in Post Content Selectors setting. In other words, if your selector matches images but the images are not in the post content, then the images will not be saved.

6.3.3.7.6. Image URL Selectors

Define CSS selectors that find the elements that store to-be-saved files’ URLs in their src attribute. This is a type of Selector and Attribute Setting.

Important

The selectors you define will search for images in the code that is found by the selectors you defined in Post Content Selectors setting. In other words, if your selector matches images but the images are not in the post content, then the images will not be saved.

The URLs must be in src attribute, because browsers load the images by using the URLs defined in src attributes. Because the images should be displayed in the post content by a browser, their URLs should be in src attribute. If the URLs are not in src attribute, then you can use Exchange element attributes setting to put the URLs into src attribute.

Important

This setting is visible only if Save images as media? setting is checked.

6.3.3.7.7. Test Image URL

A full image URL to be used to perform tests using button of Find and replace in image URLs setting.

Note

It is important to enter one of the URLs found by the CSS selectors defined in this section as a test URL, because those are the URLs that the plugin sees. If you enter a part of a URL instead of an absolute URL, then your tests might not indicate that the find-replace rules will be applied as you expect.

6.3.3.7.8. Find and replace in image URLs

Define rules that will be applied to each image URL found by the selectors defined in this section. This is a type of Find and Replace Setting. button uses the value of Test Image URL setting as the test subject.
