    I’m pretty sure there are other image widget plugins that do all that and more (including custom urls). I’ll try to track them down.

      I’m sure there are as well. Heck, even Tom Mcfarlin knows there are a bunch of plugins that have similar functionality. But he built this one purely to satisfy his own needs for client sites. I was just adding in what I’d like to see in a plugin like it to make it more valuable to me.

    Sounds like you’d be happier with something like Simple Image Widget:

    In addition to providing a big button to upload or choose an image from the media library, there’s also the option to set a URL. You can even set it to open in a new window if needed.

    I’ve been using Image Widget for years now with similar but more extensive feature set: http://wordpress.org/plugins/image-widget/

    As long as the plugin cannot link to a custom url I don’t see why anyone would want to use it, but looking through the code I think everybody should at least download the plugin to see how well it has been put together!

    The only thing I don’t like is the sentence about and link to premium support. How am I supposed to use this on sites for clients?

    I’m with Marty, using Image Widget, which is not WPML compatible, but that is something I can easily work around :)

    Image Widget is a pretty standard tool for this … http://wordpress.org/plugins/image-widget/
    It’s been around since the beginning of time (circa WordPress 2.3’ish) and is very stable. I think they use (or did use) it on WordPress.com.
