Caching external images


Would it be possible to add cache possibility for external images (for exemple, thumbnails when people add a link) posted through Buddypress Activity Plus ?

Would be great.

    Hiya Laurent,

    I'm not sure about caching (this would be done through a cache plugin - and wouldn't be something I'd advise on a social site where you want to have as much dynamic content as possible).

    Do you mean storing the image local to the install as opposed to an external link? Then it could be loaded via a CDN which would theoretically be faster.
