    How do I manipulate wordpress to be able to display a thumbnail on an external site?

    Currently it will only allow me to display images that are hosted on my site.

    Thank you

    Thank you for your plug-in, however when I tried it, I could unfortunately not get it working.


    On the bottom where it says:

    That is what is happening to me unless I use the custom: image_thumb and the other portion being the locally hosted URL.

    I have no problem with customs but I'd like to be able to use external URL.
