    Simple but great, I love it.
    It is always a headache when my clients asking about featured image, things got worst after updated to WP 3.5. The clients should select image twice to add it to post and featured image. Your plugin worked great. Only one problem is there. If select image from media library (which is already uploaded earlier) the plugin does not making featured image. Any suggestion / option to do that?
    thanks again

    Same thing happening here: it doesn't work except under VERY specific conditions - namely, that the image has to be added to the post by uploading it, not by adding from the library, etc.

    It also only seems to run once: if you add an image to a post, then decide you don't like it and remove it, then upload and add another the FIRST one still appears as the featured image.

    In my opinion, these inflexibilities massively limit the usefulness of the addon. It would be much better if it checked and updated when a post is Published or Updated, rather than when an image is added.

    Edit: went looking and found Auto Post Thumbnail by Aditya Mooley, which seems to do the job and has a button to process old posts... but doesn't have the post/page switch. Suits my particular needs better.
