Auto Post Thumbnail
Plugin works great, but suggestion for future version (2 posts)

    Hey there, this plugin works great with the latest version of WordPress. It did exactly what it was supposed to do.

    However, I have a suggestion for a future version. The top images on all my posts are resized versions of images that I uploaded, meaning that if the original image is called photo.jpg, the top images have names like photo-600x400.jpg. In the process of creating thumbnails, the plugin created an extra entry in the media list for every post -- now the media lists contain both a photo.jpg and a photo-600x400.jpg, when one is an exact replica of the other. It didn't add any new images to my uploaded media folder, because all the photo-600x400.jpg files were already there as versions of photo.jpg.

    My only complaint is that it's sloppy -- would there be any way for a later version to recognize when the top image is a resized version of an image that's already in the media folder?

    Update -- it is indeed calling thumbnails named photo-600x400-150x150.jpg, even though I already have identical automatically generated thumbnail files named photo-150x150.jpg.
