Default Custom field in featured block?

I replaced my header image with a custom field (an img url to an image hosting site). So now the featured block does not display an image for featured threads. Is there a way to include my custom field in the featured block?

hmmm... Not without customizing the code.

Another method you may want to look into is the way that the snap.php module does it (look in geek/gars/mods/persist).
It essentially replaces the header image with the one it downloads from the URL. You could do some tweaking to that to make it take the value of the custom field, then push it into the header image field. That way it will appear in the feature module.

HTHs!

Sounds a little out of my league but I'll give it a shot. Thanks Geek.
