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.

    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.

    CRAIGSLIST = FREE HIGH QUALITY LEADS

    If you are not aware yet or forgot... craigslist is still one of best places to get free high quality leads and make money on them. It ranks #11 in US and #73 worldwide. Besides the job section where you can post working URL links you can also use links in "Community" categories such as Classes, Events, General, etc. If you are offering free online webinars, online tutorials, etc...this is a good place to start. Not only start but continue building your list and profiting. You just have to be a little creative, create a good landing page (lead capture page), and create something valuable that you can give for free and also have some kind of upgrade. I hire people on fiverr to post ads for me because it works over and over again. One of my best campaigns generated 308 free leads and made 42 sales ($99 item) just from 1 Event post in NYC on how to start an online business. It was 60 minutes free automated webinar on what is a website, how to set it up, how internet marketing works and how people make money as an affiliate...and then I sold a guide for $99 on advance internet marketing strategies. Not every campaign generates 308 leads but every single campaign has generated free leads.
