Use external images from anywhere as the featured image of your pages and posts.
I managed to get this plugin to work how i wanted it to work after some editing of the script itself.
For some stupid reason it outputs the image as an img with the url set as its background image. Therefore you then have to add extra CSS to actually display it!
IT should just out put it as a standard img link:
<img src="http://XXXXXX.URL.XXXXX" alt="BLA BLA BLA">
For that reason I'm giving it only 2 stars.
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!
