*** NOTE 1: This plugin ONLY works if you have NOT previous set a featured image.

*** NOTE 2: When you paste a URL, it MUST end with a recognized graphics extension e.g. jpg, png .. without any additional characters that some image hosters add, OR this plugin's parsing service will fail.

*** NOTE 3: When you paste a URL, this plugin WILL NOT show you any results when you do so (it's not ajax enabled). You WILL HAVE to PUBLISH your post and PRAY that it fetches and sets the intended image.

So yes. It works. But not intuitively and inelegantly.

The plugin has not seen any updates/bug fixes/feature request implementations since its first release. I've been a supporter of many plugin developers, through word of mouth as well as through donations, but I need to have something which works elegantly "out of the box" first.
