As the subject of this post suggests, this is with regard to "featured images". I am trying to set the "featured image" for each of my blog posts. These images are actually links to images stored elsewhere on the web. When I try saving this http image location as a featured image, it does NOT get stored. Has anyone else experienced this same issue? Can linked images NOT be set as featured images? Any guidance on the issue would be highly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
