WordPress 6.2 Openverse Integration Updated to Upload Inserted Images

As the hotlinking issue drew more attention, WordPress contributors chimed in on the ticket to call for the feature not to be shipped in its current implementation.

“This cannot ship this way, or it will get unknowing users sued, next to that it has negative performance implications, as you can’t do srcset or loading attributes on images loaded from remote. Sideload really should be the default, and in fact IMHO, only way.”

Yoast founder Joost de Valk said.

*update March 23, 2023, with the official release of WordPress 6.2 the openverse integration mentioned in this article is included in WordPress.
