    i have a huge product page. There is no way to include all the images on my server.
    Is there a way to show an external images as featured image when there is no thubnail or first image (or the first image ist hotlinkt from an other server) without import it to the server?

    I want to show the picture at genesis_featured_post widget or at category pages.

    I user genesis framworks with the news child theme.

    I found this link but i dont know where und how to include it.
