We are using a CDN in an external system (DAM) to store all of our images, and I am trying to find a way to integrate this to WordPress.

The functionality I would like to achieve is:

  • Use the WP Media Library to store image references (i.e. links), but not the images themselves
  • Image thumbnails should be pulled from the CDN to display the images
  • Extend the "Add Media" dialogue to be able to navigate in the DAM directly, and to select and import media references to images selected.

I found a similar plugin that does this: https://github.com/zzxiang/external-media-without-import

However it seems that this is no longer maintained. Any ideas how/if this can be achieved or if it's a bad idea altogether?
