WP Featured Image

by 6 comments
How do you insert a featured image from url in Wordpress? I know you can insert an image in a post via url, but there doesn't seem to be an option to do this for featured images.

Maybe there is a plug-in that does it?

    There's a link called 'Set Featured Image' at the bottom of the right hand column in the post or a page add/edit screen.

      Yes I know, but you can't 'Set Featured Image' from a url, only from the media library or uploaded from your pc.

    So just upload it from your PC?

      Also check your theme. There may be a setting in there to show thumbails on your category pages, if that is what you are trying to do. The thumbnails usually pull from the featured image. In some themes they don't use the featured image but pull from the first image in the post.

      I am trying to save disc space on my hosting account hence my question about uploading via url.

    You may have noticed the “Featured Image” box when editing a post or page. It allows you to upload or select an associated image for the article. It generally appears as a thumbnail when viewing a list of posts, perhaps in a category index or search results.

    I do small freelance jobs for local businesses. Social media, graphic design, web design and some marketing. All very small jobs. I recently was introduced to a guy who is a public speaker, author, has his own podcast and online store that generates sales of $550k and wants to double that up to $1.1m. Where would you start with a job like this?

    My website is only a month old, but Google has indexed the webpage I am checking the SERP position for. Here's the thing. I have an EMD and when I type the EMD keywords into Google, none of my webpages show up anywhere (I searched for it all the way to the last page which is page 34), but my Facebook, Google Plus, and YouTube pages all show up around pages 9 and 10! I haven't built any links back to these pages, but I did build a few no-follow comment links (URL links only) and paid for 3 directory links on pages with a PA of 35 to 50. Can someone please explain why my social pages would show up but not any of my webpages.
