WordPress Set Featured Image From URL

Whether it’s a corporate website, a blog, a magazine or an e-commerce store, WordPress is considered as the most accessible and manageable resource. That’s why within a few years of time, WordPress is very much popular among all.

Often we came across small issues which matters most, those who are using WordPress may face this issue while using external image servers. While WordPress provides options to add media from external links, there are no options available to set an external image file as a Post or Page Featured Image.

This can be achieved programmatically but we suggest to make it through plugins, as it’s bit tricky to do it manually and you may break your site completely while changing WordPress system codes.

While there are many available plugins to choose from, we recommend selecting the plugin which is recently updated with most positive reviews. Here are two best plugins which serve the purpose,
