So i have been breaking my head against the internet looking for a simple plugin that could allow me to use featured images and gallery images from the url. And voila, i see featured images with URl. It is perhaps new, so there are only 60+ installations, hope it can reach more people. Can’t appreciate enough! It is a good no fuss plugin. Sometimes the best solutions in life are the simplest ones. Thanks to the creators. Fab job you people! May you have many more installations.
