Hi Guys,

I'm wondering about a bit of functionality whereby a user types in an external URL of an image and silverstripe will retrieve this image, put it in a folder like /assets/sites/{domain} and create a record for it in the database.

Any help would be awesome.

Thanks.

hi

I think I would put the relevant code into the onBeforeWrite() function of the dataobject where you ask for the image url.
I just googeled for getting images with php, check this: http://www.edmondscommerce.co.uk/php/php-save-images-using-curl/
And this link should be also usefull: http://silverstripe.org/data-model-questions/show/12823
