    I want to ask if there is a possibility to Set featured image from external url or server (subdomain), I tried several modules for wordpress , but none works.
    a plugin that I think would do the job is Nelio External Featured Image link : but it is not compatible with theme, in backend image appears but in front end image is Loading 1×1 px .
    can you help me with a solution

    Hi Talpa,

    You need to integrate this plugin with the [IMAGE] and [IMAGES] shortcode, please edit the file: framework/class/class_shortcodes.php

    img.nelioefi {

    I used this plugin:

    Featured Image From URL

    After installing the plugin insert your external feature image url in the custom fields area’s newly available custom field fifu_image_url.
