Perfect External Images
By , for WP 3.9.1

Perfect Plugin for external images not lying on your wordpress host.
I use it with Amazon S3 storage and it works a treat.
Great and fast support from the developer.

Works Great!! Saves so much time/effort
By ,

I am not using a default wordpress theme. I'm using SNAPS. Simple change to the css file and perfecto!!! I am so excited about this because using the featured image as is in wordpress would have been a nightmare for me. I'm an artist and my site is nearly all images - hundreds of them shared between my blog and website, so everything is an external link.

Thanks Nelio for creating this fantastic plug in, and thanks for answering my support question with lightning speed. (I don't know if all themes need a .css change, if so it would be nice to document in the readme file or somewhere)

I highly recommend this plug-in!

Worked great, and the developer responded and fixed bug with in hours!

I have been looking for a plugin like this. This plugin makes sese. Why would you need to bloat your media library if you are using exteranl images, like the ones with creative commons license?

One particular theme did not work well and I reported to the developer. It was fixed in matter of hours. You won't get service like that even for paid software.

Must have plugin.

Erases the standard featured image on update
By ,

I gave it a 2 rating because of the following problem.
The plugin erases the standard featured image on update. If you don't have an external link then no image shows up at all! This is not a bug, but an over site that should be addressed. Perhaps a checkbox to use external image (default unchecked) so that if you update a page with a regular featured image set is does not interfere with that.
Anyway, it should be corrected.
If this is corrected I would give it a 5!
