    Thank you very much for your detailed video. One property is obvious: The file names of your images are extremely long (over 800 characters). This exceeds the maximum fie name length of many operating systems, see this list of a file systems comparision.

    The external server seems to have a high limit of the file name length and can store the files. But your server seems to have a lower limit of it – too low. I reconstructed your case on my server with a HTML code example of one of your website’s pages. The result: The server could not store the downloaded image file.


    Hello Sir,

    So… How can i fix this ?

    May you tell me?

    thank you.

    I think shorter image file names (max. 255 bytes) are a good way to be able to use bulk edit again.

    Or use a plugin for external featured images and set the images manually or via Bulk Edit. This plugin supports both the free plugins Featured Images By URL (at wordpress.org) and Featured Images From URL (at wordpress.org).
