Support » Plugin: Save & Import Image from URL » Feature Request: Add functionality to the Feature Images Media Popup

  • Resolved Garrett Hyder



    Love this plugin, but would love it even more if it could be enabled for Featured Images. And I guess the Media Library uploader as well.

    Currently to get an external url into Media Library I have to create a post to Add Media there as it’s the only place the plugin is hooked.

    Would be awesome if could upload media directly to Media Library or Featured Image.

    Thank you

    Hi Garrett,

    great you are using the plugin! And I have good news for you today: I found a way how you can directly import an image and use it as a Featured Image in a post.

    When you have imported the image, scroll down to the bottom of the image screen. There is a big button “Insert into Post” – but right next to it, a smaller link “Use as featured image”. I just tried it out here on WP 4.7 and it works! Directly imported as featured image.

    Screenshot: Take a look here –

    I hope this helps you become more productive with importing images as featured images! Let me know if you run into trouble.

    Your second point: I’ll see if I can find a way to hook into the media gallery as well so you can import images also when not editing post. Perhaps it’s even possible to do bulk import then. I am adding this to the plugin backlog! Thanks for the idea.
