Easy Add Thumbnail
[resolved] Not Working (10 posts)

    Hi!

    I've downloaded this plugin - but it isn't working. Perhaps I don't understand the directions correctly. From what I read I should do the following:
    1. create a new post
    2. add an image in the post

    and then the plugin generates a featured image. Is this correct? If so, I can't get it to work.

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    Not sure if this will help with your specific issue, but wanted to post this info for any other folks having issues with the plugin.

    We are migrating a site from Blogger to WordPress. When we first activated the plugin, it didn't appear to be working either. After some research, we figured out it was because all the post images were hosted on third-party sites (e.g., Picasa). Once we moved all the images to the WordPress Media Library & updated the posts accordingly, the plugin worked great! It appears the plugin only works on images that are stored in the WordPress Media Library, fwiw.

    Thanks to Samuel Aguilera for a terrific & very easy-to-use plugin!

    hi... I'm using Pagelines Platform. I noted previously Samuel said that thesis would not work automatically, will this work with Pagelines Platform? (They directed me to this plugin!) I recently exported 800 + posts from WordPress.com to wordpress.org and trying not to manually set the featured image but right now no image is showing as a thumbnail to the post without my manually changing it. (The images are at the posts themselves.) All my images are in the WordPress Media Library. I could manually fix them - although I think this would take quite a bit of time! Thanks.

    Hi!

    Indeed as VR Media pointed the image for the featured image must be in the media library AND attached to the post (so you if you click in the "add media" button inside the edit post screen, you must see at least one image there).

    If no images are attached to the post, Easy Add Thumbnail can't do his job.

    Hi Samuel, thanks for the response.

    There are images attached to pretty much all my posts but they have not been added in as the featured images since I installed the plugin. They are also in the Media Library.

    For example, this post has an image: http://216.104.180.193/?p=13360 but when you look at the home page there is none here (4th one down): http://216.104.180.193/ (The first three I manually inserted.)

    Appreciate any help getting to the 'bottom' of this.

    Cat.

    Hi Samuel,

    I actually changed to a theme that doesn't have featured images. I'm sure there would be an explanation for what was happening - or not happening - but the post was in the media library and attached to the post as far as I could see and a bunch weren't showing up. Some were, some weren't. If I had time to go through all 800 posts than it wouldn't be an issue but I just didn't. So I had to 'give up' on it for now. I may readdress in the future. Thank you for your help. Your PlugIn seems great ...

    Hi Samuel, I decided to switch the theme back and tho' cumbersome manually set the featured images where they mysteriously had not been added with the PlugIn (as I mentioned before). I thought I would deactivate and then reactivate hoping perhaps it would 'take.' Now none of them have the featured image set. Is there anything else I might need to do having switched themes? (They were there initially before I deactivate and reactivated.) Should I reinstall? Thanks.
