Media Images from URL if the Original Site' isDown? (3 posts)

    Hi, I'm just wondering what happens to images we add via URL if the site of the URL ever dies off and closes down or delete the image from their server. Does WP Media import the images via the URL or does it just link to them and load them from the URL source site?

    WordPress just links them into the posts and loads from the source site. If source site is down or image is deleted, you won't be able to show it.

    OK, manual uploading it is.

    Thanks for the knowledge George.

    UPDATE: This makes everything better: Import External Images Plugin
