Resize image from external url

This is an outstanding extension. It saves me a lot of time!

I have one question: This extension works perfectly if the image is on my server, however, I have an image server that hosts most of my images in the original resolution, the extension doesn't seem to work when I call the image from the external url.

In the link below, the brand logo is resized to the dimensions that it should be, but the product images below the logo are not resized. These images are hosted on a separate image server. Can you tell me what i am doing wrong, or if there is a work around for this?

ProductsDetail.php?SKU=PSB42YSXSS

Thanks for the help.

Image Resizer uses the height or width attribute of the image tag.


your product images are shown without an empty height and width attribute:
<img width="" height="" class="image0" alt="" src="http://www.specsserver.com/CACHE/FRVTKWRKOYBR.JPG" style="opacity: 0.7;">

since the height and width are not specified, the image is not resized.

Thanks - but the height and width are not empty in the code. See my code below:

<?php
if(TRUE){ // Begin Cached Resized Image: ImageCacheInstance_1287416098580
ob_start();
?>
<img src="<?php echo $row_rsimages['full_size_url']; ?>" alt="" class="image0" height="250" width="200" />
<?php
echo(getCachedResizedImageHTML(ob_get_clean(), "image_cache", "fit", "#FFFFFF", false));
} // End Cached Resized Image: ImageCacheInstance_1287416098580
?>

For some reason it is only empty when the page loads.

It could be due to a PHP setting. You might need to allow PHP to open http urls like this. Check this out: filesystem.configuration.php#ini.allow-url-fopen

I already have those set to on in my htaccess file:

php_value allow_url_fopen on
php_value allow_url_include on

Jennifer,

try this instead:

php_value allow_url_fopen 1
php_value allow_url_include 1

Thanks for the suggestion, but that didn't work. Something about the image resizer code is causing the height and width to be blank. If I remove these 2 lines of code, the height and width are displayed.

<?php
if(TRUE){ // Begin Cached Resized Image: ImageCacheInstance_1287416098580
ob_start();
?>

<?php
echo(getCachedResizedImageHTML(ob_get_clean(), "image_cache", "fit", "#FFFFFF", false));
} // End Cached Resized Image: ImageCacheInstance_1287416098580
?>

sorry about that, I know that using on instead of a boolean can cause issues and thought it was worth a try

I looked into this issue and it appears it does not currently work with remote images. I have made a fix to correct this problem and we will be getting a dot release out that will work properly. If you want a beta copy of that release before we go live, just send me an email directly to ray@webassist.com and I'll forward you the build when it is ready.
