Imagecache External is a utility module that allows you to store external images on your server and apply your own Image Styles (D7).
Important: to use the module you need to visit admin/config/media/imagecache_external and either:
- Add some domains to the whitelist -or-
- De-activate whitelist functionality
<?php return array( '#theme' => 'imagecache_external', '#path' => 'https://www.drupal.org/files/druplicon.png', '#style_name' => 'thumbnail', '#alt' => 'Druplicon', ); ?>
<?php print theme('imagecache_external', array( 'path' => 'https://www.drupal.org/files/druplicon.png', 'style_name'=> 'thumbnail', 'alt' => 'Druplicon', )); ?>
You can also use external images without coding at all by adding a Text or Link field to a Node Type and then use the Imagecache External Image formatter.
- Images are stored in the site's files folder in an external subdirectory.
- You may flush the fetched external images (note that this does not flush the generated imagecache files) by visiting admin/config/media/imagecache_external/flush
