Vanlege spm.

Why isn’t preview button working?

  • Your image URL is invalid. Take a look at FIFU Settings > Getting started.

Does FIFU save the images in the media library?

  • No. Only the PRO version is capable of doing this, but it is optional. The plugin was designed to work with external images.

Why the featured image is being displayed twice?

  • You enabled «Featured Image in Content» option unnecessarily.

Why the featured image is not being displayed?

  • Please check if «Hide Featured Media» option is unduly enabled.

Why are there no changes after changing the settings?

  • Try to clean your cache.

Is any action necessary before removing FIFU?

  • Access settings and clean the metadata.

What’s the metadata created by FIFU?

  • Database registers that help WordPress components to work with the external images. FIFU can generate the metadata of ~50,000 image URLs per minute.

What are the disadvantages of the external images?

  • No image optimization or thumbnails by default. You can fix that with CDN + Optimized Thumbnails feature (performance settings).

What are the advantages of the external images?

  • You save money on storage, processing and copyright. And you can have extremely fast import processes.

Is it legal to embed images without permission?

  • Yes, it is. Click here to know more.

I've been waiting for a plugin that pulls and displays a video thumbnail as the featured image for my video-oriented posts for years. (My theme does not support a blog video post format.) FIFU grabs the thumbnail of the youtube video and posts it automatically as the featured image. Perfect. We've worked with the developers to iron out how posts that are not video posts but contain a video are handled. They've been responsive and addressed our issues right away. Highly recommend.

This piece of work is one of the best plugins that are available in wordpress. Put a link and have an image for your post. What do you need more?

This plugin is such a fantastic solution for websites with many images that would otherwise overload the server. I'm so happy that I found it! It works flawlessly, and the issues I had when trying to connect with files on Dropbox were fixed within hours. Marcel answers support requests almost instantly (even on weekends!) and is extremely fast and helpful, beyond what would be expected.Thank you Marcel, your generosity is appreciated! I am also impressed with the willingness of the developers to make it easy for the user to succeed in having a fast-loading website at a low cost. They provide a CDN solution for free, and are not trying to push you to the cloud hosting alternative they also provide, which is actually very reasonable and will be my choice at the right time. I have bought the pro plugin and warmly recommend it to anyone, especially if you have many images.

Marcel responded to the email in less than 30min, I didn't even expect that. The support is really great and the communication is super. What about the plugin itself, it's just amazing, it's really worth having (I got the pro version and am completely happy with the purchase)
