Quick Featured Images

Your time-saving Swiss Army Knife for featured images: Set, replace and delete them in bulk, set default images, get overview lists.

How can I set a default featured image for existing posts?

For that use the plugin twice:

  1. Under 'Set, replace, delete' remove all undesired featured images if there are some. If desired remove the images using the option 'Overwrite existing featured images'.
  2. Then choose the desired image and set it to the posts without the option 'Overwrite existing featured images'. This will set the image to all posts without a featured image.

How can I set a default featured image for future posts?

Or: I want image X as default featured image if the post has category Y. How to set this?

Look at some examples:

  1. To set a default featured image for every new post of the category 'Lorem ipsum':
    1. choose the image
    2. choose the taxonomy 'Category' and
    3. choose the value 'Lorem ipsum'.
    4. save the settings.
  2. To set a default featured image for every new post:
    1. choose the image
    2. choose the taxonomy 'Post Type' and
    3. choose the value 'Post'
    4. save the settings.
  3. To set a default featured image for every new custom taxonomy of a theme or a plugin, e.g. events of the category 'Concert':
    1. choose the image
    2. choose the taxonomy 'Event Category' and
    3. choose the value 'Concert'.
    4. save the settings.

Who can see Quick Featured Images in the WordPress backend?

All users who have the right to edit others posts have the access to Quick Featured Images. As long as the user roles are untouched after a fresh standard WordPress installation both Administrators and Editors can use this plugin.

For these users the menu item 'Featured Images' with its sub pages appears in the WordPress backend. All other users will not see this menu item or will get an error message if they would request a Quick Featured Images page via a direct link.

Does the plugin work in a WordPress Multisite installation?

Yes. It works either activated for all sites (network wide) or activated in each single site. It changes only the posts of the site where you use it.

Why does the plugin say "No matches found" after confirmation?

This could be the case if the images were not uploaded via WordPress' own media uploader. If you have uploaded images via FTP or other ways the plugin can not find images.

It does not matter where the images are stored on your server. They can be in any folder. But they have to be uploaded via WordPress' own media uploader to be found by this plugin. If this is the case the plugin will work fine.

Why are there sometimes strange search results with custom taxonomies?

The search for custom taxonomy terms could lead to surprising results. The reason is custom taxonomies can be used in many different ways. It is not possible to catch them all in one single code expression. If you should be unsatisfied with the result try other filters to get the result you want.

Which languages does the plugin support?

Actually these languages are supported:

  • English
  • German

Further translations are welcome. If you want to give in your translation please leave a notice in the plugin's support forum.

Where is the *.pot file for translating the plugin in any language?

If you want to contribute a translation of the plugin in your language it would be great! You would find the *.pot file in the 'languages' directory of this plugin. If you would send the *.po file to me I would include it in the next release of the plugin.
