A wish that to be in some WordPress 5.4 future minor version.


WordPress "Select image" Dialog doesn't support inserting image from URL
in all cases and if, in the case it supports, when there is an image(or any file type) inserted
from a URL(specifically with dynamic-protocol URL that starts with just couple of slashes),
WordPress won't save and|or implement that dynamic-protocol URL in all cases what shortens
its compatibility of being compatible with browsers like Firefox security compliance and shortens
its compatibility of offering the writer the freedom of making his|her blogs URLs protocols
dynamic for a pitfall situation during, for example, an SSL renewing process what may stops or misbehaves his|her website.


Let WordPress supports dynamic-protocol URLs anyway, let WordPress "Select image" Dialog
supports Insert any file type from a URL anyway, and make sure they all function well and securely.

Hi @ulike123 ! Thanks for your ticket! We discussed this ticket in the recent media meeting and we were having some difficulty finding the issue you are facing.

Which screen are you on when you are seeing the "select image" button? There are several places this may render so I want to make sure we are in alignment.

Are you requesting better support of URL targets using the OS file uploader? Could you describe more about how you are using this?

Thank you!
