Can I use a linked image as the featured image?
It seems like I can only insert a image from the Media Library and most of the time it wont work correctly.
Linked as in how? Like from a URL?’ You can use the “From URL” after clicking “Insert Image” to do that.
If you meant something different let me know.
My overall goal is – to make a featured image from my smugmug account’s pictures.
Let’s say I want to make a new post with a featured picture. I’ll add new post and on the right side there is the “Featured Images” box.
I’ll click “Insert Image” – “From URL” – then i’ll insert the url. At the bottom there is only the button ” Insert into post”. The “Insert into post” button doesn’t do anything when clicked.
There is no “insert as featured image” button or anything.
Thanks for the support!
