Images via URL (5 posts)

    Is it possible to use a URL for the PNG file instead of directly uploading it? We are using an image that is hosted on the organization web site but our department blog to run the WPBadger plug in. The "Set as features Image" option is missing from the page to use an image at a URL.

    Yes, I believe you can use a URL instead of uploading it. When setting a featured image, you can select where it's coming from: your computer, a URL, or the media library. You'll enter the URL of the PNG that you wish to use.

    If you don't see the "Set as featured image" link, that's likely because your current WordPress theme does not support post-thumbnails. You can fix this by adding the following line of code to your current theme's functions.php file: add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' );

    I can't see the 'set as featured image' button either...
    I tried adding the line in my functions.php file without success.
    (I use featured images in the articles and it works)
    What am I doing wrong??

    OK, sorted.
    My theme was blocking it.
    I added 'badge' in the selection:
    add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails', array('post', 'badge') );
