Automatic featured image (7 posts)

    Hello,

    Congrats, your plugin is really nice!

    I have a single "problem"/question/request: is there any way to grab the first image from a feed, and set it as the "featured image"? The plugin imports the image, which is great, but isn't there any way to set the imported image as the post's featured image? This will REALLY be helpful, as 99% of the themes nowadays use the featured image option.

    Thanks!

    Great, thanks 3x7!

    Still it would be a very good idea to have this feature in the main plugin, without installing 3rd party stuff...

    I had the same issue with FWP... I found this plugin... http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/media-tools/ it worked great at importing the external post images and placeing them as the featured image in each post... the only ones that it did not work on were ones that had a featured video inplace of the a picture.. for these it placed a black place holder image....

    Thanks PinkishHue, for letting my know about the Auto Post Thumbnail plugin... After trying it... it seems much better than Media Tools... it runs automatically along with the auto feed from FeedWordpress....
