WP Featured Image

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.

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