Give Featured Image External Link

Could someone give me instructions on how to give a featured image an external link?

I’ve been looking into custom field but I am having the hardest time putting all the pieces together.

My featured images are being called via post to a page where they are all displayed as thumbnails. I want the thumbnails to have separate link than its post.

    Greetings mkim2203,

    Thank you for the great question but I am somewhat confused as to what you want to do here.

    If you want to change an images link to something other then that of the post or itself this can be done in the media library within the image description.

    Or did you want the featured image to be brought into the post using an external link which cannot be done due to WordPress core requirements that the featured image be part of the media library?

    Please advise.

    Cheers, Joe
