Automatic Youtube Video Posts Plugin
[resolved] Can't add featured image (25 posts)

    Some time between the 25th and the 27th of July, my "Select featured image" and "Use as featured image" stopped working.

    When I try to add or use as featured image, everything looks ok, until after I save.
    Then the featured image disappears from the post.

    And if I update one of the earlier posts, it looses its featured image.

    The only changes I did, was to update plugins.

    I've deactivated, tried to save the post with featured image, and reactivated when it didn't work, for all of my plugins.
    The one that made it work when deactivated was Automatic Youtube Video Posts. Do you know why?

    I can't find anything in the error logs.

    I think I might have the same problem. I just updated the plugin and all of the sudden none of my video's thumbnails are showing up on my site, even though they're set for all my posts as the thumbnails, and they showed up just fine before updating the plugin.

    My videos disappeared as well (when I updated, not when I deactivated)

    This was an error on my part. This should be resolved in the next update of the plugin.

    Same problem as svehex here. Latest version 3.0.3 creates broken images even if a featured image has been set. Had to restore back to the previous version from a backup and all is normal now.
    Heads up.

    Its a shame too, seemed like the new version did at least fix the duplicate posts problem. Manually going through all these posts to find and delete duplicates is getting monotonous.

    I am still having this problem with the latest update (3.0.5) - is anyone else?

    @dsdmdesign, you are unable to set a featured image for your posts in 3.0.5?

    @mpraetzel I had featured images set previously, and now they don't show up. The videos themselves are no longer embedded in the posts either. here's the live site

    An earlier version of the plugin may have overwritten them. If you add them back do they stay?

    Can you send a link to a post whose video is not being displayed and a screenshot of what the video fields look like in the admin area of WordPress for the post.

    Here's a post without the video displaying.

    Oh shoot! doing this made me realize they're all just gone from the posts! Is there a way to re-import everything without creating duplicate posts?

    Wait. They're all in the video posts section of the backend. But the fields to fill in the youtube video info in each post are all blank. So the videos that have already been collected by the plugin just need to be re-linked to those posts somehow.

    Others have reported loss of video data. I have not been able to replicate this issue. To avoid duplicate posts you could use the plugin's reset tool and perform an import from scratch.

    When page load the images are not showing for post excerpts, how are the images show in the posts? You can see it here http://www.confusedthoughts.com/video-game/user-videos/tyrant4001-videos/#

    @leethompson, you're asking why your thumbnails aren't being displayed for your videos?

    Yes I'm sure it's something simple thanks

    Does your theme use the the_post_thumbnail function?

    I ran a grep -r the_post_thumbnail * in wp-content/themes/reviewit and no luck, but there is a ghostpool_thumbnail.

    @ leethompson, that would be your issue. Your theme doesn't support displaying the thumbnails automatically. You could use the following function though to display them:

    <?php tern_wp_youtube_image(); ?>

    Thanks that will work I also found the function and updated it in the ghostpool thumbnail.

    Hi, I'm using this nice plugin and everything seems too work fine, except for one thing: I cannot replace the featured image with a different image. The featured images are taken from YouTube and displayed correctly, but they are the worst quality ever (YT's fault) so I'd like to replace them. is there any way I can disable the plugin getting the featured image from YT?

    Thanks for any info you can provide,

    David

    Change line 31 of /core/video.php from this:

    add_filter('post_thumbnail_html','WP_ayvpp_thumbnail');

    to this:

    //add_filter('post_thumbnail_html','WP_ayvpp_thumbnail');
