How to add external link pictures to wordpress media library? (use plugin)

How to add external link pictures to wordpress media library? (use plugin). By default, the media files of the wordpress website can be uploaded and stored on the server, but external link pictures cannot be added to it. This does not affect the use, because we can insert external link pictures when editing articles. If you must add foreign trade pictures in the wordpress media library, you can try this free wordpress plugin I shared today

Sometimes we may use some external link pictures, which can be directly inserted in the article or page editing process, but how to add these external link pictures to the media library? By default, wordpress does not support adding externally linked images, and can only be uploaded locally. Although CDN and object storage can be integrated to realize externally linked images in disguise, it is essentially still uploaded locally.

Today, Yueran builds a website to recommend a wordpress plugin (a bit old, but it can be used)-External Media without Import, through which you can add external links to the wordpress media library.

The plug-in is free, you can directly search and download it in the plug-in center of the wordpress website background, or you can download and install it through the link below.

It should be noted that this plug-in has not been updated for several years. I used it on one of my websites, and the function is normal. You can install it for a try first, and delete it if it doesn’t work.

If your current wordpress website theme supports this plugin (most of them do), then there will be an extra link when uploading pictures in the background media library, as shown in the picture above, click to enter the link to add pictures.

有时候我们可能会用到一些外链图片,这可以直接在文章或页面编辑过程中插入,但是怎么把这些外链图片添加到媒体库呢?默认情况下wordpress是不支持添加外链图片的,只能本地上传,虽然可以整合CDN和对象存储变相实现外链图片,但这本质上还是本地上传。

今天悦然建站给大家推荐一款wordpress插件——External Media without Import,通过它即可把外链图片添加到wordpress媒体库中。

插件是免费的,大家可以直接在wordpress建站后台的插件中心搜索下载,也可以通过下面的链接下载安装。

需要注意的是这款插件已经几年没有更新的,悦然建站在自己的一个网站中用过,功能是正常的,大家可以先安装试,如果用不了删除即可。

如果你当前的wordpress建站主题支持这款插件(大多数都支持),那么在后台媒体库上传图片时就会多出一个链接,如上图所示,点开即可输入链接添加图片。
