Dynamic Featured Image

Dynamically adds multiple featured image (post thumbnail) functionality to posts, pages and custom post types.

Dynamically adds multiple featured image or multiple post thumbnail functionality to your page, posts and custom post types. This plugin provides you an interface to add any number of featured image as you want without writing a single code. These dynamic featured images can then be collected by the various theme functions.

Attention! If you upgrade from 3.0.1 to a newer version you will need to re-enter all
images or manage image url in the database manually. The plugins find the image
folder automatically from ver. 3.1.0.
