i realized i AM actually getting the image in rainmeter cache(NOT in skin though), it just displays like that in the "About" if you have "Download=1" in the measure (sorry). BUT if i try and open the image it says its damaged or corrupt. i tried the exact url in the measure but still broken even though the url is working in browser. it is this:-
http://4walled.org/thumb/5547e8cc691562d8281af5d82cdbdc7a.jpg

just cant get rainmeter to download an unbroken image. (from that site)

if anyone would like to try it to see if they have same as me just pop This:-

[M1]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=Plugins\WebParser.dll
Url=http://4walled.org/thumb/5547e8cc691562d8281af5d82cdbdc7a.jpg
Download=1

in any skin and then see the image in:-

C:\Users\YOURNAME\AppData\Local\Temp\Rainmeter-Cache

thanks

The file is not an image but redirected HTML. This means "BAN"
This site requires the referrer to download the image.
(i.e. The image is downloadable only from the link of 4walled.org.)

Unfortunately, you cannot download the image from there with Webparser.

thank you kenzo i was going out of my mind. its a shame though its a decent site. i was just confused at first not seing full url in "About" but that makes sense now that an image wouldnt be called a "url" . on an upnote, the information i was linked to earlier will come in usefull for me in another skin. thanks again.

Try wallbase.net instead. Pretty much the same thing, but prettier and faster.
I don't think, therefore I'm not.
