The Lowdown
Recently I had need again to clean up a database on a site. This plugin makes the job of doing a search and replace an easy task. It will replace in numerous tables or you can just target a single table. It is great for hunting down those elusive url changes that need to be made when you migrate a website to a new domain of if your doing the https conversion on your site. Just be sure and make a database backup before you start.

External Media without Import

Requires: or higher

Released:01 January 1970
Last Updated:01 January 1970
(0 star out of 5)
By default, adding an image to the WordPress media library requires you to import or upload the image to the WordPress site, which means there must be a copy of the image file stored in the site. This plugin enables you to add an image stored in an external site to the media library by just adding a URL linking to the remote image address. In this way you can host the images in a dedicated server other than the WordPress site, and still be able to show them by various gallery plugins which only take images from the media library.
The plugin provides buttons and inputs in the ‘Media’ -> ‘Add New’ page, the media upload panel and a dedicated Add External Media without Import submenu page. Therefore you can either add an external media before (or after) editing any post or page, or in the process of editing a post or page without interrupting the editing process.
