I'm hoping there is a direct tag for bringing in featured images/attachments with XML post imports, using an external url?
Explanation: I am successfully importing a large number of custom posts by way of XML files and the standard WordPress Importer. (The posts are from a non-WordPress proprietary CMS).
The one thing that isn't working is the featured image. I'd like to be able to import the featured image/thumbnail attachment within the XMl file, using the external url for the image. Is this possible without a plugin? Is it possible to do this as a tag for an attachment?
In other words, is there a tag for the post/item that would work, such as:
<tagname> http://www.aabbcc.com/imagename.jpg </tagname> ?
