Installation


Install the Add Image URLs module.

Configuration


You can add MIME type > file extension mappings in the module config. These mappings are used when validating URLs to files that do not have file extensions.

Usage


A "Paste URLs" button will be added to all Image and File fields. Use the button to show a textarea where URLs may be pasted, one per line. Images/files are added when the page is saved.

A Pagefiles::addFromUrl method is also added to the API to achieve the same result. The argument of this method is expected to be either:

Example:

// Get unformatted value of File/Image field to be sure that it's an instance of Pagefiles
$page->getUnformatted('file_field')->addFromUrl("https://domain.com/path-to-file.ext");
// No need to call $page->save() as it's already done in the method

Should you have an issue using the method, please have a look at the "errors" log to check if something was wrong with your URL(s).

Install and use modules at your own risk. Always have a site and database backup before installing new modules.
